Hi Tim,
Just saw the picture of us all- Tim, Jerry, me, Chad and you, from our White Fly adventure a few years ago. My only regret is that we did not keep in touch.

I’m working on a revised version of the book, Voelker’s Pond, with new photos and essays, and wondering if you have any shots of the cabin and pond I might be able to use for the book, of course crediting your photographic talents.

No worries or pressure. It’s in proof right now, but feels a bit empty.

I have had shoulder surgery on my right side, of course my casting arm, but may be able to fish by late summer. I was wondering if we might try a repeat of the get-together on the big water for white flies. I mentioned it to Jerry… it’s a bit early to commit, but it’s an idea!
