There comes a time in all of our lives when we let ourselves dream about living life on our own terms. When we wrestle with the decision to take a step into traffic, follow our passions and live deliberately - or simply let another day, and daydream, pass.
In the end, it doesn’t matter if we make the decision of our own accord, or life makes it for us. It’s where our heart and soul are that matter. For some, the result is a closer alignment between vocation and avocation, for some it’s a reprioritization of what’s important in life, for some it’s the very real difference between life and death.
Set primarily against the diverse, rugged and breathtaking landscape of Idaho and Oregon, A Deliberate Life explores the stories of five unlikely friends who share the same love of fly fishing and the outdoors and their choice to lead a life according to their passions.

As winter finally grabs hold of Southern New England and chokes out the last of the warmer temps and longer days, productivity in the larger rivers in Rhode Island slows significantly. Unwilling to accept the bitter truth, we decided to stray from the beaten path, to places that seem to encapsulate endless summer, with plentiful and beautiful fish eagerly attacking dry flies. Thats right, we're talking about native brook trout streams; one of Rhode Islands most underutilized and under-appreciated fisheries. With little to no fishing pressure, plenty of gorgeous native and wild fish, and consistent action on the surface, sometimes we forget why we ever fish anywhere else.

SCOF NO. 12
By Marc Crapo
Hardly Strictly Musky Southern Classic
When I was 16 my first ever "real job" was at Mazatlan Mexican Restaurant. Can you even imagine!? The Whitest of Whites bussing tables and slinging chips n salsa? "You're the funniest looking Mexican I've ever Seen." I heard that more than once. Whatever. Being in that peculiar situation I had a front row seat to Cinco de Mayo. I'll never forget the smokey packed house, the chest beating; Darts and pickup lines on one side and a record number of people drinking their meals on the other. A Restaurant full of White Folks putting Mananas Hang Over in a Headlock. You know, I'm sure all of Mexico is Super Stoked that we Mericans Celebrate El Dia de la Batalla de Puebla (which of course, all y'all know all about…) Now I only share this little tidbit to help illustrate the obvious fact that I'm no greenhorn when it comes to rocking a "borrowed" sombrero.
