The Longest Road ...

No doubt you can guess at a lack of posts in this blog from the first photo in my previous entry.

My son, Winston James Allen was born on July 20th at 1:06 AM. He was 6 lbs. 11 oz. at 20" long. What an amazing experience, and it wasn't half as hard as everyone kept telling me! :-) Oh yea ... Michelle did really well too!

Somehow, back in June, I envisioned catching up on blogging since I knew I wouldn't be on the water for a while ... that didn't really happen.

I hope to get on the river soon. I need to figure out where to put my gear since Winston will be taking up all my chest space in a Baby Bjorn. Looks like it's time for one of those hip packs.

For now, I'll just say ... Welcome to the world Winston, I can't wait to share one of my greatest passions with you son.



  1. Hey Jeff, congratulations for having this cute baby.He looks so cute in pictures. Thank you so much for sharing this lovely moment with us...

  2. Congrats! Fishing will take a backseat for a while, but it is worth it.


  3. Congrats on the arrival of Winston--looks like another fly fisherman in the family. thanks for sharing
