Last Night's Flies - Clouser Mad tom

Last night at 11:46pm I came to the realization that after all of the hard work and fanfare over my new DIY fly tying desk, I neglected to actually tie anything on it. Two weeks with no fly tying makes me cranky… With a burning desire to put some Bigmouths on the end of my new Sage […]

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 […]

Oh No The Muskie Are Eating All Of The Bass!
