Buffalo may appear to be big docile cows but 40+ years of experience in Yellowstone National Park has told me that it is better to give ground than to stay put and see if they just ignore you. This...
This is my first fly tying vice which I purchased from Paul Young in Detroit in 1964. It was made by R.S. Chase Company in Boston, MA and was a model 17. I tied flies on this vice for many...
The question of who actually "created" a certain fly pattern or fishing method is always one of speculation. Unless, as in the case of a modern day tyer who "discover" a new material and apply it to...
Its interesting that when I watched the video everything that he did seemed perfectly normal to me. With the exception of cutting the copper wire with my fine tying scissors and the complete removal...
Thanks for the compliment, but you are a superior fly tyer and I am a journey man. As for presentation, I work at it, but better than you or even better than most - I doubt that. Fly...
The body is a biot. The fly was tied by Byron Haugh and I used the image merely to illustrate the article. It is a beautiful fly, very well tied, and more nicer than mine.
Campfire Lodge was owned and operated by Chuck and Nancy Sperry for many years prior to the present owners. The land belongs to the US Forest Service and it is leased. I knew Chuck and Nancy very...
To all our readers, may you enjoy a happy and safe Fourth of July holiday. May you revel in the freedoms that we enjoy and remember what it cost to achieve them. May your waters be clear and calm,...
Glad to see you made it back for another year. Hope that you have great fishing and enjoying the cool temperatures and beautiful scenery.
Happy birthday from the Ladyfisher and the Chronicler. May you have many, many more.
The Ladyfisher continues to improve. Went to church today and is now using just a cane rather than the walker. No pain, good movement. Praise God.
Sorry to hear about the death of Tom Deschaine. He was a long time friend and contributor to FAOL. His contributions will be missed.

Doctor visit today for x-ray and staple removal. New hip is perfect, healing going exceptionally well, prayers answered.
Ouch. Glad there is no loss of use. Follow the doctor's orders, keep your hand out of pond water, and soon you will be back making trouble for all the local bluegills and crappie.
Happy birthday Betty, may the Lord grant you many, many more.

Happy birthday Jim. It looked like you enjoyed the day. May God grant you many more.

Progress is being made. Much better day yesterday with fewer muscle spasms. Finally able to get in some extended walks with the walker. Hopefully she will be home early next week.
Ladyfisher is doing better today. Brought her back to our local hospital for some additional rehab and PT. Less spasms today, a more cheery outlook. Thanks for all emails, bulleting board posts,...
Hip surgery was successful but now she is having violent muscle spasms. Unable to stand for long or much walking. Lots of pain meds. Prayers are appreciated.
Bit rougher day today with the pain meds that she received during surgery beginning to wear off. Up and about some but having some muscle spasms and some nerve pain. Will get better. Thanks for the...

Just a quick note to let you know that Deanna had surgery this morning in Bozeman and that all went well. She was awake and in her room by 11:30 a.m., and the...

Condolances from the Ladyfisher and the Chronicler. May God grant you His peace at this time.
