THE CLASSIC LOGO
Life changes fast. I can hardly believe what Troutbitten has become since July of 2014. I had plans for none of this, but I’ve opened the doors that appeared in front of me, one by one, following a path ahead. Troutbitten has grown into my full-time career. Imagine that. I never did. And while so much has changed since the early days of a fly fishing blog (look back through the archives), the roots of all of this never have.
Troutbitten is about fishing hard. It’s about family, friends and the river — a life on the water.
While developing the first generation of Troutbitten.com, the WordPress theme asked for a logo. “Hmmm,” I though. “I don’t have one of those.” But an hour later I did.
And that 2014 design remains. As much as I’ve thought about changing and revising it, I never find anything to replace it. Maybe I’m just attached to the novelty of that first moment. Maybe it’s a simple design that has grown in depth with the weight of the material behind it. Whatever the case, this is the Classic Troutbitten logo.
