Tom Morgan Rodsmiths On ESPN!

 ~  I don’t follow professional sports much, and that is certainly true of the big three here in the U.S. (NFL, NBA, and MLB) So it isn’t often that I find an article put out by one of the major sports coverage networks that I get excited about.  But ESPN has something to be proud of in the recent article they published on Tom Morgan and his wife Gerri Carlson.  The article is written by Wright Thompson and is part of ESPN’s Outside The Lines, with the wonderful images (some of which are used here by permission) being captured by photographer Ross Dettman for ESPN.

I won’t even begin to try and detail what is covered in the article, as I believe reading it for yourself is a far better way to get the information than to have me reiterate it here.  So I’ll simply say, it’s worth your time, and will provide you with a great insight into one of the most respected names in fly rods today.

May I express my sincere appreciation to ESPN, Wright Thompson, and Ross Dettman for making it happen, and to ESPN and Ross Dettman for granting permission to use the images included in this post.
