  1. Those look spectacular. I need to get into this material and do some homework
  2. Caught some bass and bluegill on this one today.. very gratifying.
  3. Went to my farm pond today and got out in the jon boat and caught crappie, bass, and bluegill on the new clousers... favorite colors were darkgreen and white, chartreuse and white, and red yellow and green. Had a great day pulling in so many fish on flies that I tied
  4. Went to BPS to get some extra stuff that I didn't have laying around for some clousers. Found Bob's Clouser video on this forum and figured I would give them a shot. Bought 10 red dumbbell eyes, flash, white thread, and some extra size 6 hooks got home and started tying. I couldn't stop.
  5. So in my typical Saturday, I clean house, yard work, chores, relax, tie flies, reload bullets, dream of what flyfishing gear I think I need. Today I was sorting through my uncleaned brass and somehow came across an unreloadable copper 9x19 casing. It must have gotten in my bag when my nephew thought it would be funny to dump the range empty's bucket in my range bag.... Still sorting through all the .22's. Regardless I polished up the casing and drilled out the primer. I am the type of person to where if I find a piece of rubber tubing on the ground, I pick it up and hold on to it until till I find something I can put it on as a handle or whatnot. Hoarder, sure... As I was sitting there thinking of what I could make to put it on or just stick it on something, I was cleaning my 5wt Cabelas rod/reel and I did a test fit on my reel handle... Perfect. So I super glued it on there. It extends the handle out another say 3/16" at best maybe just an 1/8th. But I really like it. Then I had to go to Michael's with the Mrs. to get Thank You cards.... ELOPE... JUST ELOPE!!!!!! And while I was at Michael's, I had the idea to make a fly tying tool holder... originally I was going to use a real nice looking piece of wood that still had the bark on the outside with no trimmed edges but it kept peeling off as I was walking through the store and I ended up going with a fully trimmed out piece. Whittling block and a blank plaque. Little bit of stain and wa-la.... Hope this might spark an idea for someone.
  6. I used to live in CO and loved fishing below the Dillion Dam in Silverthorne, not that far from Keystone. Beside the fact that if you get below the bridge you have foreign tourists screaming at you to cast "just a little bit further, he's right over there" or "you missed him, cast again" I am not an accomplished flyfisherman but I hooked up quite a few times and brought a small handful to the net. I believe there is a fly shop very very close to the bridge and I've heard it is very good.
