When Trout and Guitars Collide - Par Avion Mini Tour - Aug.30-Sept. 3, 2016

With Eric Clapton recently getting some neat buzz for catching a record sized Atlantic Salmon, the humorous collision between anglers and the retreat to the meditation of fishing remains alive and well. Harkening back to my days fishing in a duck pond with a transistor radio blasting KYA and KFRC's stream of top 40 and fast forwarding to recent years when I would ditch a guiding gig in the Sierra to head to Europe to tour …. I am pleased to announce a mini-tour of Par Avion. In other words, I'm here to contribute to this tradition dammit! This compact trio plays twangy and surfy music and has offered me an "excuse" to visit the mountains with guitar in hand (versus a fly rod). I wish to invite all who are anywhere near these events to pop by and enjoy some music. Most gigs are free and most are family friendly and several are in the Sierra Nevada including one in Yosemite National Park! Dawn patrol trout session the morning after. Join me! Also note a special benefit concert in Kernville called FISHSTOCK! Incidentally, Kernville guide Guy Jeans plays a solid role in the FISHSTOCK event and he too fishes and plays music with a band named the Stoneflys. Clever eh?
