A pretty good video on how to catch a dog on stillwaters…I am not usually one for watching videos on how to tie patterns but this one is prett good.

So I suppose I had better post about fishing again soon. It has been a long winter so thanks to people who stick around in the close season. Come open season my visitors always jump up as they know I will start fishing again soon- or at least that thing I call fly fishing- I [...]
