Good deal. See you Friday.
This coming Saturday. If you ae in the area be sure to stop by.
A few years ago a sixth grader in southern Indiana had a science fair exhibit confiscated for having feathers he picked up in his back yard. He was warned but not charged and his display ended up in...
Heat wave in the fort right now. A balmy 10 degrees. That is better than yesterday's high of 9.
This cold snap gives me a chance to clear out some work in the shop and get some flies tied for...

Water in the low 30s anchor in 20 - 30 feet of water off of the weedy breaks. Cast small weighted nymphs and attractors with 15' to 18' of level 2# test Maxima to the deep side of the weeds and let...
The project will die form being studied to death. Get the darned thing built.
Olive bluegill sparrow tied on a #8, 9672. Will catch everything I fish for from steelhead to bluegills.
Depending on the fly I use a Renzetti Master with the crank and a Regal. They do everything I want from a vice.
I have found it in flakes, balls, and cakes. Try the dollar store. The stuff I get is Enos.
Allen is right about "some stuff is not worth the bother". I politely decline to accept a piece of...
Forget the freezing altogether. Forget the microwave also.
Scrape off all of the fat and connecting tissue from the skin. Wash the skin in warm water and Dawn that has a couple handfuls of borax...
Works for me.
Take a look at Harry Boyd of the Boyd Rod Company. He is in Louisiana. He might be close enough for you to visit.
This would be my choice.
Don't forget to get your federal tax id number and any state and local tax numbers and permits. When you start making and selling fishing tackle you are a manufacturer in the eyes of the IRS and...
Takes me from 90 to 100 hours to make a rod. However, I make everything except the guides and sometimes I make them. This does not include drying time for glue and finish.
Bamboo is king for...
I have a pair of Simms Guides that I bought in 1998 that are still going. I use these for winter steelhead fishing because they are big enough to put some clothes under them. The...
I have been using glow material for years. At one time all you could get was a paint from Herters. Much more variety in materials today.
Sleep on the floor.
As a bamboo rod maker I have a simple warranty. If it is my fault I will fix it but you are responsible for shipping both ways. If it is your fault I will still fix it but I will charge you for the...
I could see all of the top when I made this thing. Don't know what happened.
Didn't know there was a name for it. 60 years ago we called it just plain fishing. Bamboo (cane) pole 10 - 15 feet long with a piece of level fly line tied to the end of it, 6 - 8 feet of leader and...
I am pretty sure the 2014 all species non-resident Michigan licence is going to $76.00.
I have tied at this show for several years and must say that this years show was the best ever. Thanks to the Buckeye United Fly fishers for putting on such a great show.
See you there Jack. It is -16 here this morning so a little rain will be welcome.
