2011 A Fishaholic Year In Review

I can’t say I’m sorry to see 2011 go.  It has been one tough year.  The Economy, family issues, work…  UGH. While, smelly, slimy, muddy, cold, wet, hot, sweaty, frustrating, EXTREME, dangerous, and at times bloody…  Fishing has kept me going this year and it always put a smile on my face. There were many moments […]

Twisted up a few bugs tonight

Did a little work at the fly tying bench tonight.  It was a great way to end a short work week.  Nothing like banging out half a dozen flies to calm the nerves. Tonight I focused on two chenille intensive patterns.  The first, an old standby, the San Juan worm and a new fly (to me) […]

Year End Clearance - And Then There Were Deer

I’m going to miss this year end clearance stuff once 2012 rolls around.  For those of you who aren’t keeping track or happen to be a little slower than most,  I’m posting lots of stuff that never made it to the page this year.  Consider it clearance, the bargin bin, one last try before I […]

End of Year Clearance - 3 Addicts and Some Trippy Pics

Wow.  2011 is flying by eh?  By my count there are three days left until 2012.  I’m excited.  2012 is going to hold some great fishing, the likes of which have never  been seen (at least on this humble blog). As we travel farther down the rabbit hole of fishing addiction, allow me to present […]

Best 8wt Bass Fly Rod For Under $300

To continue the discussion I was having over on Google Plus with some heavy hitters of the online fly fishing world… After being a good boy for 12 whole months it appears I might have enough Christmas cash (along with change from the couch cushions) to buy a new heavy duty fly rod. In order to keep […]

The Dragon Shark Ate My Puppy

Today I had full intention of posting a useful article on fishing.  Then I clicked on some YouTube videos and well…  Let’s just say my evening quickly took on more of an “educational” tone. Ya know, like when you were in high school and they would have “movie day”.  Pretty sure I slept through most […]

Year End Clearance - The Swimmer

One epic fishing trip last July involved a whole host of wild animals.  We first met a curious raccoon in broad daylight (from which I ran screaming like a little girl).  Raccoons in daylight?  Never good. After moving to another fishing location (several miles away),  we also met the little gem below. Jeff and I […]

End Of Year Clearance - Fly Tying Symposium

As we draw 2011 to a close I’m forced to think about all of the things I didn’t get to do this year.  Regrets?  Perhaps. I’m going to do a few quick and dirty rapid fire posts.  Good news is you’ll get some great pictures to look at.  Bad news is there won’t be much […]
