Chuck's Hobbies


Among my interests are cross-country and telemark skiing, flyfishing, refereeing soccer matches, and collecting bamboo fly rods. The rod pictured below is a Granger Aristocrat, currently my favorite rod.  I spent five months in New Zealand in early 1997; click here to read about some of my experiences down under.

tackle dealer is the Jordan-Mills Rod Co.

The Medicine Bow Nordic Association maintains a home page on cross-country ski conditions near Laramie. 

Beginning "pinheads" will enjoy the Telemark tips web page; more seasoned types might like the

Telemark Talk Forum.


Soccer enthusiasts can find out about the Colorado youth league here, or visit the home page for the

U.S. Soccer Federation.  The web page for the Wyoming state soccer association is located here; this is the web

page for Wyoming soccer referees.
