2016 In Review

TWENTY-SIXTEEN WAS A BIG YEAR. New clients were booked, revenue milestones were reached, shutter clicks were off the scale, and the official year-end tally of My Butt In An Airline Seat surpassed 15,000 miles. In this video, you’ll find a smattering of my 2016 work from The Olympic Range to the Seychelles. Much appreciation to YETI and Frontiers International Travel, […]


Year In, Year Out

Year In, Year Out

SAVE FOR A COUPLE of years when the dates got jiggled by familial obligations, this was my 23rd year in the Florida Keys during the last week of May. Any why that particular week? Because that’s when my guide dates are booked and I don’t dare give them up. Oh sure, some years we’re a […]

We’ve had years with epic weather and fishing; and years with rain, wind, […]

The first trip involved the extremely busy schedules of nine people, and the second trip involved tarpon fishing dates that have been carved in stone since 1991. I shall now apologize to my […]


Unplugged in the Neo-Tropics

Key West This was our seventeenth year (parents, siblings, kids, et al) with the same dates, same guides, and undoubtedly some of the same tarpon. In some years we’ve hit it perfectly (late May/early June) and in other years the planets were mis-aligned. We had some goofy west winds and poor visibility that hindered a […]
