Exploring Cowan Lake State Park

There are several state parks within an hour’s ride from my home. Cowan Lake State Park is to the east southeast, about 30 minutes away on some nice two-laners. Even though the V-Strom is still in the break-in period, this bike is so smooth, a joy to ride.

Next time, I visit this park, I’m bringing my fly rod.

A Short Ride-About

The weather has improved rather dramatically, and the motorcycles are out and about. I was one of them.

2015 V-Strom DL650 at Morrow, OH.

It’s hard to ignore 50+ degree weather and a little time to ride. So, I quickly planned a route, and fired up the V-Strom. Two hours later, I had a big smile on my face. I have so missed motorcycling over the past few months.

Something new: Fly Fish Brent

For some time, I have been thinking about making changes and producing content a little differently. So, here is the first component of those changes, a new personal blog dedicated to my fly fishing activities. Fly Fish Brent. There might be a little travel involved in the posts, but only if it involves a fly fishing adventure.

This also means that you won’t be reading too much about fly fishing here on this site, as it too will be undergoing some changes.

So, take a look, and consider following along.

See you on the highway.

The latest fly rod build

I think I am addicted. Addicted to building fly rods. Here is my latest build. It’s a 9’ 5wt 7-piece rod with a custom rod bag.

7-piece-5wt

Broken down like this and packed, it’s only 18 inches long. Assembled, it’s 9’. This is perfect for taking on motorcycle trips.

There’s nothing like catching fish on a rod you built with a fly you tied. Smile

Do you motorcycle and fly fish?

See you on the highway.
