Quick Purchase on J. Stockard

No excuses here but lately there have been a few life changes that have put The Functioning Fishaholics in the back seat.  These changes are all positive and I’ll write about them soon but until then… I just bought some fly tying materials from J.

I could easily spend an entire week writing about the experiences I had in just this weekend alone.  While I’m pretty sure I will do just that, I thought I’d […]

First Go At A Foam Frog Popper

Lately the internet has  been buzzing about foam popper flies.   It seems every other day I’m seeing a new video on tying foam bodied flies.  Since I have my new, pretty, Sage Bass rod and plenty of time to wait till warm water fishing heats up, I figure the cold months are perfect for […]
