"Wade River's Wild Tramps is ungodly"
-RBF- Chief of Operations; RBF Pro Staff
"I was a 90 lb. weakling until I read Wade Rivers Wild Tramps.
Now I can roll cast 90 yards and match Tom McGuane metaphor for metaphor"
WRWT is what life is all about. May you catch a wild trout on every cast and have a slow/crippled member for bear and moose bait on every trip. Step lightly and carry a big stick...
"Wade Rivers is not only this year's Angler of the Year,
- Craig Mathews
"One of the turning points of my life was when I first read Wade Rivers blog"
- Former President Jimmy Carter
"All I can tell you is that when Wade Rivers calls, I answer his phone"
-George W. Bush
"Don't confuse having a blog with having a life"
"Bloggers of the world owe Wade Rivers a debt of gratitude"
-John Randolph, Editor of Fly Fisherman Magazine
"The greatest trout fisherman I ever met"
"Wade Rivers Wild Tramps is a series of brilliant ruminations on rivers, wild trout and wilderness"
I wish this could have been a more entertaining adventure into the joys of late autumn trout fishing here on my home waters, but now that the rains have finally come and recharged the rivers it's been either too cold or the fish have been too busy producing next years progeny of fingerling's for me to get in any serious angling. We've just completed our first year here at Wade Rivers Wild Tramps and we hope that it's been a refreshing change of pace from the cranky and strident tones of your average fly fishing bulletin board -not to mention the almost complete lack of crass commercialism. Over the past year I've been pleasantly surprised by the amazing diversity of humor, insight, photography, straightforward information and entertaining commentary found in the fishing end of the blogsphere and I'm glad I could wade in with both boots and be a small part of it.
Not being the type to just kick back with a bourbon and brisket during the cold winter months, I will endeavor to actually bring some new and revitalizing content in the months that lay ahead. In the meantime I'll just mention that I've heard some ungodly fishing reports recently from the limestone spring creeks of the Cumberland Valley right here in good old Pee-Aye, so don't forget to get out there and have some fun in your favorite wild place this winter.
