I am a graduate of UCLA and Western State University College of Law and am an attorney in Los Angeles. While the great part of my practice involves writing, it is writing about the things I love that makes life interesting. I began writing stories as a teenager and had my first article published more than twenty years ago. Since then, I have continued to write about fly fishing, local people and places, the American Civil War, and medical/legal issues.
Random Acts of Fishing is a compilation of stories including fishing travelogues, real-life stories, and tales of pure fishing fantasy. What I tried to do was put together a book about the "essence" of fly fishing without getting too bogged down in the techniques of the sport. Though some of the stories contain information about places to fish or the type of flies to be used, the majority of the stories are meant to transport the reader streamside where the water can be heard lapping against the shore, the warm wind moves the tall grass, and the smell of pine lingers in the air like a woman's perfume. Sometimes, the "essence" of fly fishing is in the experience itself and not so much in the mechanics of fishing or the catching of fish. That's why it's called fishing and not catching!
