Fast forward to last Thursday. My son and I were discussing our dinner options for the evening when the doorbell rang. After getting the dogs settled down I opened the front door and all that greeted me was the backside of my mailman as he walked back to his truck, but there on my front step was a PVC pipe with a return address from somewhere in California. I had been expecting a package from the same gentleman for a fly swap that I was running, but this was much too large a package to be flies. Curious, I took the package to the kitchen and was blown away by what was waiting for me when I screwed the cap off of that PVC. Inside the package was a note telling me to try the rod and we’d work out the details later, but more importantly the package contained a beautiful handmade 3wt bamboo rod that the maker had aptly named “fishing small creeks.”

This year I have been badly bitten by the sporting literature bug. I enjoy reading these books so much that I have plans of collecting enough books of the genre to have my own sporting library. I can already hear the protests of my wife, asking me if I really need another hobby. But I figure there are far worse hobbies for a husband to have.
It started innocently enough with a book recommendation from a friend, who felt that this book would be just the ticket to cure the boredom from sitting alone in the evenings here in Afghanistan. A quick visit to Amazon and I had paid my money and waited eagerly for my prize to arrive. A few weeks later Burton Spillers collection of short stories entitled “Firelight” arrived in the Brigade mail room. I devoured that book in a little less than two days, and I have been addicted to the genre ever since.
