A personal quest to catch a grand slam turns into an "absurd goal" to make a film about catching tarpon, permit and bonefish on the fly in one day from the waters around Key West, Fl. This is the long version of what was entered in the Drake Magazine Video Awards 2011.

I'm off to Outdoor Retailer to continue work on 12wt. projects. OR is not typically thought of as the fly fishing show but it's the best place to see the widest swath of people and business that can help you innovate. As I was packing I thought of posting something that conveyed a sense of innovation. The wheels began turning and I landed on this image. Identify the person in the photo by the time I get back (8/6 at midnight). Correct answers will go into a random Way Upstream drawing. The lucky winner will get something cool (TBD).
