“DAVY Wotton’s Super Midge’s have been an underground cult pattern on the White River for the last year Super Midges were whispered about, talked about and pontificated on but rarely seen.”

 

“The Synthetic Living Fiber, or SLF dubbing, is one of Davy’s, so is Prism Dubbing and most of the range produced by Wapsi. Wapsi bought Davy’s dubbing business before he moved to Arkansas,…”

Eggs and Beads (Alaskan ‘Attractor’)

beads

“Beads: The Bare Naked Truth E-mail
Have you ever wondered why grown men and women spend their free time painting plastic beads……Lurking in fly shop aisles looking for just the right color…..Elbowing teenage girls out of the way to purchase various shades of nail polish…….Standing midi-stream, mumbling to themselves, while staring intently into their enormous selection of beads? Why do they go to all this trouble when the could just use a Glo Bug?”

**Please note that in the State of Alaska beads are considered attractors, not flies. When fishing beads in Alaska’s fresh waters, a bead that is fixed or “pegged” so that it cannot freely slide on the leader, cannot be fixed more than 2 inches from the hook.

***Also note that because beads are not considered flies, you cannot fish them in fly-fishing only waters with a bare hook. In fly-fishing only waters a fly tied of traditional means (with thread) must be used with beads. A thread wrapped hook with a pegged bead will suffice in fly-fishing only waters under state regulations.

Chesapeake Bay Cleanup Failure (25 years broken promises)

With ever increasing portions of our economy, liberty and $$$ going to the Feds, it is disconcerting that so many are eager, almost fanatical in their green fervor, to turn all control, over this green process, to the Feds, and hence all residual portions of the economy. This green folly…a new religion…will be an abysmal failure and have devastating consequences to our economy, way of life and freedoms. And, if the wealthy States of Maryland and Virginia, cannot clean up the notable Chesapeake Bay (no doubt with Fed $ and oversight) then how does one imagine the Feds can manage anything bigger and more complex? Much like taking apart the engine, but not knowing how to put it back together. Easy to tear down. Folly, I say. State and Local Govt’s failed in urban/suburban growth management and by the map charting amonia it is apparent Baltimore/Wash. D.C.  really failed. I am sure there is more to this than I presently understand, but one thing is certan, the Feds rarely make anything better.

“What the Chesapeake has become is emptier…. It has fewer crabs, oysters and watermen than it did 25 years ago, when government officials first pledged to restore its health.”

“Inside the Fairbank Tackle shop, men stopped in to grab Tastykakes, cigarettes and long rubber gloves. Others sat down on buckets of Castrol Assuron motor oil, talking politics, crabs, tall tales and old lies. It smelled like Vittorio House Blend coffee, like the dog that people feed Slim Jims and, suddenly, like the worst low tide in history.

“What did y’all get into?” somebody asked a fisherman who just walked in, taking a mid-workday break.

“Lot of dead fish.” Mud shad, he said. They were dead when they pulled up the net.”
