For most of my life I have canoed, kayaked, rafted and fished rivers west of the Mississippi. Ever inspired by Edward Abbey, one of my passions is rowing boats on non-commercial, shared expense trips thru the Grand Canyon and other multi-day river trips in the Rocky Mountain West that require permits obtained thru special lottery applications. Western river permits also allow me to pursue another favorite pastime, fly fishing... far away from other anglers and closer to 'uneducated' trout.
