In which our intrepid correspondent, a prodigal pink Vermonter, readjusts to life in the east after roaming the Rocky Mountain wilderness, fly rod in hand, for a couple of decades.
Blue: adj: The color some extremities turn when subjected to extreme, prolonged cold.
A born and bred Green Mountain boy, Pink began his angling evolution tromping through the streams of Vermont, armed with earthworms and Chuck Taylor “wading boots”, stalking 10 inch brook trout. As a young “adult”, he migrated to the Rocky Mountains, where he acquired his nickname, guiding rivers, and patrolling the snow in the high-altitude sun, for two decades. Now, back in the motherland, fly-fishing is his technique of choice, but he is not averse to diversifying, embracing his credo of “hope and change”, as he travels New England, and sometimes the world, chronicling his adventures of self-satisfaction.
