Embassy Parties

The one good thing about Tom moving to Colorado was him giving me suits. I'm wearing a nicely tailored wool suit to the Norwegian embassy. Starting the t-shirt designs for TPFR members or anyone else who fishes the Potomac.

Making some updates to the web site during period breaks in the Capitals game.

Got my new Fly Rod & Reel magazine in the mail today. Always glad to get a new fishing mag in the mail. Steelhead looks to be the main focus. Can't wait dive into this issue.

Gravelly Point

Spent the late morning fishing with my unruly hound at Gravelly Point.

Tide was outgoing and not much in the way of fish biting was going on. The hound had separation anxiety and refused to be tethered to a picnic table more than a few feet away from me. His high pitched barks were
not welcomed by those enjoying the weather.

A fishing excursion turned into a casting excursion. We fished long enough for the wife to run a few miles into the city and back. We then had lunch at Liberty Tavern one of our favorite spots. Spent the afternoon  working on dragonfly fishing products and later sold a few beer lanyards at the New Zealand Embassy (the wife's job gets me into some cool places)

Custom Flies

Tied up a few dozen custom flies for a father and son trip to the SNP this weekend. Mix of attractor nymphs, some foam dries, and some bait fish/crustacean looking streamers. Hope they had as much fun fishing my flies as I had tying them.
