    Actually, when I save Dave's tying area, my first thought was "Wow! I've seen fly fishing shops with less stuff than that.". Beautiful set up though and very well maintained.

    Anyone hear from CMCulloch lately?

    Just checking to see if anyone has heard from Craig McCulloch lately. I tried sending him a PM and even an email and I got no response. Just hoping that everything is okay for him.

    Sorry Buddy, but when fishing a sub surface pattern hookless just won't get it for me. A slight tug on the line (or perhaps no tug at all) and it's over. I'm afraid that I enjoy the fight as much...

    Uncle Jesse,
