Ethan Smith is the founder and principal of SmithFly Designs. His manifesto on the relationship between fly fishing and bluegrass called “The Fiddle and the Creel, Connecting the dots between one artistic anachronism and another” appeared in the 2011 Fly Fishing Edition of Gray’s Sporting Journal.
This blog exists to cover a multitude of things that I and a lot of folks like me find interesting. I fish with a fly. I pick the mandolin and guitar. I’m working on learning to hunt birds over a skinny English Setter named Nick. I like to jam. I like to watch other people jam. I like to drink good beer around a warm campfire, and I’d like to do more of all those things.
