SHARE Borrowed hooks and other looks

On Fridays, Stray Casts will be given over to other viewpoints, “Borrowed hooks and other looks.”

I hope to start it next Friday, June 13.

If you have something you would like to get off your chest, here’s your chance to reach a wider but focused oudoor audience.

I already have a couple lined up, but the more the better I would feel.

This is not a site where f-bombs fly, otherwise, it’s pretty open.
