The contest begins with a plan. The warrior angler chooses his adversary and readies his weapons. The battlefield is named as he marches towards victory with a quiver of specifically-chosen flies, and perhaps most important of all, patience.


“The Musical Journey of Huckle”

“I came to the conclusion that if I was going to make a living playing music and be happy with that life experience, I needed to focus all my energy into one band that played the music I wanted to play. That is why I quit Poor Man’s Whiskey, along with my other side projects, and formed Huckle.”

An afternoon stroll through downtown Bend reveals the sort of Norman Rockwell scene one might expect from a small mountain town.
