I try to follow many great outdoor blogs on a regular basis and there are many, and I mean many, great outdoor blogs out there. Thanks to the folks at OBN (Outdoor Blogger Network) it makes finding these blogs a whole lot easier. Now you would think that OBN would be my first choice for the weekly review but they are not and I'm sure that the crew at OBN and it's members would not mind following behind my first choice of Joel over at A year on the Fly.
A year on the Fly combines Joel's passion for Fly Fishing with his passion for painting. Joel started out on January 2010 with the goal of posting a piece of art every day for an entire year and he completed it. That's right 365 posts straight. Now that is either a sign of a bigger problem or just a true showing of PASSION. Joel's tag line of "The Art Of the Fly And The fish They Catch" says it all.
|Just one of Joel's incredible works of Art|
This is a must see blog for any fisherman or art lover as Joel does a fantastic job of showing the beauty of a fly and the fish it catches and while doing so he will often offer up some additional musings and information. If you see something you like on his site, then buy it. If you have a fish you caught and a picture of it and want something unique for your wall, then ask Joel about creating an original painting for you. Once again here is the link to A Year On The Fly.
I'm not sure I can commit to a post a day the way Joel did, but I plan on keeping up the weekly They Have The Passion posts as there are so many great outdoor bloggers that I want to introduce everyone to so stay tuned.
