C'mon guys, let's fill this swap up. If you fish trout anywhere BWOs are always part of the game. 'Course, I haven't even started mine yet but will soon and would hope to need a dozen for full swap.

 Can you link your blog please Norm. I know you're getting into steel and salmon ties but a break to treat to some flies off your vise is always nice too.

Better Winged Olives are in the mail.


“The thing about fishing is that it gives a man hope.  Each cast builds a little hope and if he can lose himself to that hope, then the worries and the heartache fade into the background.  The wind inside him dies down for a while”
