estate: A Stroll Through Rock & Roll, An Experience - 01/25/11 01:01 AM
I grew up near the heart of rock & roll. Detroit was where Bob Seger, Ted Nugent, Mitch Rider and the Detroit Wheels, Kiss, Grand Funk Railroad, Motown, and many other bands formed.
Rock & Roll is not just about the music, it's about the heart and soul that brings it to life. Visiting the R&R Hall of Fame was like entering a main vein that flowed right to the root of the cause.
It was a beautiful blue-sky day, with icy cold temps. Sherry and I arrived early and got a great parking spot. We were both amazed that there … (4 comments)

estate: ZZ Troutski's Fly Box: Tying a Dubbing Leech - 01/23/11 01:58 AM
The Dubbing Leech is another great fly for beginners. This pattern is easy, inexpensive and a great fly to cast stream side.
With this in mind, the beginner can afford to lose flies in the brush or stream and concentrate on enhancing casting techniques.
I have used this fly pattern both heavily weighted and un-weighted with fantastic results and great to use warm or cold water. This fly also works well on either a turned down or straight eye hook. I have caught trout of every size and even a few bass with this particular pattern.

estate: Great Lakes Adventure is a Real Treat for Everyone Who Loves Road Trekking - 12/20/10 02:42 AM
Duluth, Minnesota, marked the beginning of our Great Lake Adventure. Seeing Lake Superior was a real treat for Sherry. She said it reminded her of that amazing feeling of seeing the ocean for the first time. Sometimes it is just as much fun seeing the excitement of another's experience.
We traveled through Wisconsin toward the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and stopped at The Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center, located just before Ashland. Little did we know this stop would begin the theme for this journey.

Remember how you were taught to believe that the world is round? Well, maybe it's time to change how you think and look at the world from a business point of view. The world has become truly flat.
Every company, brand, and product has the ability to compete in the local or global markets of the world. At the moment, the size of a company does not matter. Any company, brand or product can get a foothold in social media and have the ability to dominate their markets.
It takes planning and time to complete the circle, a funnel, or cash … (3 comments)

Worried about falling house prices
So it's nearly time to start thinking about moving to a new home. We've been in our current place for almost four years now, and considering we only intended to stay there for a couple of years in the first place, we're both starting to get a bit impatient about taking the next step!
When you've been living in one place for so long, you start to notice all the problems a lot more - like cracks in walls, worn carpets and buzzing light switches - and given the events of recent years, you … (2 comments)

estate: Montana Moments from the Fly - 11/02/10 07:01 AM
It's winding down to the last few days of a week's worth of fishing through central Montana. I began the first few days hiking up Bear Trap Canyon, into the wilderness area several miles up on the Madison River to fish my way out. The wind was blowing about 15 to 20 miles an hour with hoppers popping up everywhere.
For the first couple of hours I had a hard time holding on to any fish, as they were furiously taking the fly. A couple of Rainbows took delight in throwing the hopper pattern right back at me. Finally after about … (0 comments)
