The Nerve Center of Northern California Trout

And, California Dreaming, and articles in the Amador Ledger Dispatch, and the posts on the Amador Ledger Dispatch's blog

Some time ago, those lovely folks over at OBN wanted us to show you where we write. Here is Shoreman's inner sanctum. OK, so I'm a little slow getting it out. Hey, I've been busy catching fish and writing about it. I also thought it would be a good day since you can see the snow out the window (double click for a bigger picture).

What are you seeing? To the left of the monitor is the book (white, leaning against the printer) I keep the original articles I write for the paper. That black thing on the printer is a Wi-Fi router so my wife can use her computer upstairs without dragging out a cord. Under the table is the brains of the unit. A Dell XPS 400 and a remote 500 gigabyte hard drive.

On the sill above the monitor is my "collection" of stuff I've found fishing. Bobbers, flies, golf balls, etc. My Fly Fisherman calendar hangs just above the router. February's fly is called "Two Bit Hooker". Have to try that one. You know how I am with a fly, with that kind of name.

The last thing on the sill is the picture on the right. That is a place called Hull Bay. It's on St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands and when my wife and I were there, we did a night snorkle in that bay. A very unique experience.

OK, that's it. Everything you read comes from there.

Till next time.



  1. I have rocks and couple pieces of wood iv found while out fishing, sitting on my window sill too. cool little work station! i do all my blogging on a laptop not much to see.. :D

  2. Mark
    A well organized office. Everything seems to be right at your finger tips. By the way when you get a chance, email me the name of the that lure, the one you made a comment on my recent post.

  3. Hi Mark,
    I like it! Nice, clean, and fishing "artifacts" to boot. To get all your writing done, I imagine it helps to be very organized.

  4. Great looking work space. I usually keep a very neat work area, except for writing and fishing stuff resides.

  5. Looks like a great place to do some writing.
