Sharon Margaret Muncy At Peace

Sharon Margaret Muncy (3/25/1923 to 5/6/2010)

Not the forum to highlight the passing life of your mother. But, I have a need; indulge me. Maybe it will help. Even for a brief few moments. In the future, being on the water will distract. I haven’t been on the water in almost eight months. For the past five years, my mom’s life became a repetitive series of appointments for chemo, transfusions, blood draws and lab work. On and on it went with diminishing probabilities and possibilities. Finally, in December, this dynamic, strong woman was declared to have devolved into a hospice status and we brought her into our home. I won’t go on about the mental aspects for the patient or the family in a drawn out wasting of life. It is full of so many twists and turns for all involved. Most of you know some aspect of these life altering events in your own life. No, I just want to say the toughest woman I have ever known and loved fought until the end. I will miss her spirit and strength. As my mom always said, at the most challenging of times…’kid, things are looking up’. Yes they are mom, indeed. Love you mom.

Fly Fishing: Nymphing Strike Indicators (Sighters)

Not sure if any vendors in U.S. selling these indicators/sighters. Interesting concept for nymphing on a fairly short line and not over weighted nymphs. Just providing the visuals.

Allegedly more sensitive than traditional floating strike indicators, these sighters-indicators are just in the water or just out and within range to detect subtle takes. The nymph(s) cannot be too heavy. Notice above that one sighter has o rings and one has just the loops.

Fly Tying: PMD~Sulphur Nymph (Split Wing Case)

PMD~Sulphur Mayfly Nymph by Josh McFadden (Hatch Hunters)

SPLIT CASE PMD~SULPHUR MAYFLY NYMPH

This is a dandy little pattern, with attention to detail in the wing case split concept. Note the pattern calls for 14/0 thread and very thin yellow foam on this little gem.
