Do you ever want something that is "Custom"? Something that will give you that one of a kind, specialized feeling? I do. And that is why I have a little too much fun when designing my blog page...Ahhh...Changes...We all have them in life...we all go through them. After taking some advice from others, I am trying something a little different with my posting today...Hope it will make things a little easier on those who might be experiencing a "change" with their eyesight as I have been going through recently. If this lighter background in my post helps your reading...then the change was good! You will have to let me know... : ) Content is the most important part of this blog, of course. But, I love design and individuality too! There's just something to say about something that has a "custom" effect. Which, leads me into my "Spotlight" for today on Sunday Tippets!! (Amazing, how I did that!)
I met up with Luke Sherman and his "Most Things Custom" blog a few months back. I found Luke to be a really fun read and something not out of the ordinary...which is something that I look for when reading blogs. He is from Van, Michigan...I hear that it is somewhere in the "top of the glove" of Michigan, where all the "best" fly fishing is according to Jason @ "Fontinalis Rising"...haha. These two friends are casting their fly lines in the water on a regular basis up there. Luke seems to be a kind of a back woodsy type... I mean, any guy with an "Old School" shoulder bag... ; ) Brad Pitt would be jealous!!!
Anyway, Luke is a carpenter, musician, and all around nice guy. He likes to dabble in making "custom" musical instruments, knives and woodworking. And I hear that he plays a mean banjo!! : ) A little bit of country and bluegrass in this "Coyote Luke"!!
The Glove of Michigan!
Plenty of Fishable, Wadable Water!! (Unlike Utah right now)
Be sure to check out Coyote Luke's last post on a trip that he had last Spring @ South Manitou Island ...
Lastly, a recent video with Mutt and Jeff...errr...FR and Coyote Luke!

Sunday Tippet: If it isn't obvious...It's time to look for something "Custom"!!!... You can follow Coyote Luke HERE... I am also glad to have him as a Facebook friend...Boy, do I wish that I had all that fishable, wadable water up there in Michigan right now!
When God rested on the seventh day
He laid his work glove down on an inland bay
Soon little lakes and rivers were born
As they seeped thru the holes where the mitten was torn
Then up sprang the forests so lush and green
Bringing forth the apple blossom, robin and wolverine
Cradled by great lakes so blue and fair
God decided to leave it there.
When this water wonderland was found by man
It was given the name of Michigan
So if you seek a pleasant peninsula
There are two that you will love
One is called the upper and the lower is God’s glove
Today they are joined together by
A rainbow made by man
And Mackinac is the title of this
Grand and glorious span!
