Friend and fellow PA fly fisher Nick Cobler started publishing his own blog — Brushes with Brookies & Beer — that chronicles Nick’s fishing adventures, artwork, and photography.

I found myself especially enthralled with Nick’s recent post — Fire & Ice. In it, Nick documents a recent Drifter excursion to the Laurel Highlands and Linn Run State Park.

Nick does a great job of chronicling the whole weekend’s events, from early morning bathroom breaks to post-dinner storytime and regaling of trips past. Also, a healthy reminder that not every trip is about catching fish hand over fist. In fact, Nick says it best …

I didn’t catch any fish, but I did receive some much needed vitamin D, breathed fresh air and had an enjoyable day.
