Some updates

I have been making a lot of updates to the site with more pictures. I am working on a new idea that I do not think I have seen before. A comprehensive list of flies, the natural item the fly is meant to represent, and a fish caught on that fly. Sort of a full circle from fly tying vise to net, take a peek: flies | food | fish.

I am working on a trip to fish with Tom in late January 2010. I love winter fishing and fishing Colorado tail waters is one of my favorite past times.

My 2010 weekends are filling up so be sure to contact me as soon as possible to book a lesson. The Shad run will be here shortly!

Dickerson Before The Blizzard

Starting to sell a lot of beer can/fishing lanyard combos over at dragonfly fishing! Here are the pics of a group casting and fishing lesson  from Dickerson, Md. last week. The air temps were in the low to mid 20's and lots of wind. The Potomac had the clarity of a bowl of lentil soup.

Tom has the night off

Tom has the night off and was going to go fish the Dream Stream but -9 temps and a foot of snow might keep him home. He's currently building a 11' 5wt rod and has a bunch of custom rods to sell. I'll post details of weights/lengths and prices when I hear.

I'm off to a dinner at the Denmark Embassy. Plenty of free Carlsberg. I've got my new sunfish lapel pin to show off. Lets hope Hillary isn't having a party tonight too with her guests hogging all of the street parking.

Live 2 Fly Fish Radio

tying materials
Listening to July episode of Live To Fly Fish while organizing dumbbells and bead chain eyes, dr jones is growling at the dogs barking in the podcast background. Inventory low so time order more and find unattended window blinds with bead chain. Winter business is picking up with some  fishing trips and lessons in the books. Time to start tying up some winter stones.
