Sparkle Duns and a Tabby Cat

After a lesson with our friends last weekend, Spencer and I decided to tackle some fly-tying at home. Cats make the peaceful process of fly-tying a little more exciting, but we still got the chance to complete a few patterns! 300 more words

From the Vice: January 2018

January always feels long. It was a good start to the new year, and there were some new experimentations coming off the vice. One of the big things was working with bucktail for the first time, which ended up being a lot of fun and a material that I want to use more and more. 628 more words

Fly Tying

Featured Fly: Bugmeister

No fly box would be complete without the presence of a couple large, attractor style dry flies. The Bugmeister has become one of my favorite searching patterns for the summer and fall months, not to say that it might not work other times of the year as well.

Fish are eating griffith’s gnats, swung pheasant tail nymphs, and terrestrials.  98 more words

From the Vice: July 2017

It’s hard to believe we’re at the last day of July already. Where did the past month go? There has been some good time at the vice in the past month tying some regular patterns to fill an order and getting to do some experimenting with new patterns (new to me and ones I haven’t tied before). 149 more words
