Not but this weekend I gave away the vice I managed enough flies on since 1981.

I was trying for all snyth on the pattern

Really, the LAST State of the Union I would have thought would do something that annoyingly "fee-ing"
I got in touch with him via email maybe two years ago and told him about how I used his book.
Used my military email. He thanked me for my service and offered to send a copy of the new version of...
I have one freshwater pattern book-Popular Fly Patterns. Been using it for 29 years now. Between that book and the internet I've done pretty good. When I first got it I thought that I'd be the best...
Wish I had that fly tying section of FAOL when I started out. there is nothing wrong with learning how to cast now if you have the equipment. OK so there might be a little snow...
