Here is some good, basic reminders for all fly fishers while presenting the dry fly…Stream Side Adventures: Dry Fly Presentation.
Tim Barker over at PlanetTrout has spent the Winter tying up a storm. He offers up a great selection of Midge Pupa patterns with nice photographs and the pattern/recipe too.
There is a ton of helpful inspiration at Planet Trout. If you fly fish or tie flies, you find a great deal of information here. It should be in your fly fishing blog roll. There is also some fascinating Hollywood history you might be interested in as well.
A few photographs of flowers in the back yard this morning. Symbolic of the mothers closest to me, who all have a love of flowers and the pleasure they derived from tending, caring for and preserving during their lives.
Much like their children, they endure to care for their children with so much love and devotion, through thick and thin. I am blessed to know and have known such remarkable women…mothers to the core. Thank you for the love, patience and support! You are loved!
Every once in awhile, I drive by this industrial area of Portland and off in the distance is this tunnel. That voice calls, you should check that out and take some pictures. Usually, I do not have my camera or I’m in a hurry. Yesterday, I had my little Pentax Optio W60, so I stopped to snap a few shots after hiking in a ways.
