Allen Outside

Thanks for taking the time to peruse my ramblings.


I developed Allen Outside as a place to write about the things I enjoy outdoors: hiking, camping, fly fishing, and hunting. It's my therapy, but you are welcome to join me on the couch. Here I will talk about some of my trips and adventures (or more likely mishaps), wax eloquent (sarcasm) about fishing and dogs and family and getting old, share some tips (most of which were learned the hard way), and review gear. 


Along the way I will likely hit on a few other topics such as books I’ve enjoyed, interesting apps for outdoor pursuits, inspiring artists, desirable destinations, and stories and advice from various friends in the know. Through it all I hope to provide some inspiration and insight or, at the very least, give you a chuckle.
