Quick Trip To Cabela's - No New Rod

I took a quick trip to Cabela’s today. Before any shopping could be done, there was an urgent need for some good ol’ fashioned “health” food.  A buffet was in order! I went to Cabela’s to try and find an 8wt  TFO Clouser and some line. Unfortunately, they didn’t have any in stock.  Looks like […]

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) […]

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 […]

Mixing Fly Fishing and Politics - Funcfish Tees

Fishing has no geographical or political bounds.  Fishermen don’t always follow the same party.  Heck, most fishermen can’t even agree on what lure, fly, or bait to use.  That my friend, is what makes this country (and fishing) great.  Diversity. While mixing fishing and politics is generally a sure fire way to incite an argument online, […]
