OK, Spent most of the camping trip showing guests different bugs in the river and then explaining to them about hatches when the fish started jumping in the river that afternoon, Then while cleaning out the pool for the grandkids  today I was more interested in showing them nympths and dead spinners that I was scooping out of the pool. Then after tying my first elk hair caddis I spent five minutes chasing a caddis fly around my garage so I could show them what a real one looked like. Yeah I have fly tying and fly fishing on the brain.

I feel your pain. Tying and fishing is always on the brain here.


Are you bootstrap bill? Or the "William Turner" who gets the pretty girl to fall for a pirate?
