Fly Fishing: Damsels Habits & Habitat

“They tend to creep around the bottom of ponds and streams searching for prey. When a nymph is about to molt into an adult it crawls out of the water. Dawn or dusk during fine weather is the most common times for molting. There are usually 10 – 15 molts as nymphs. It can take nymphs from 1 to 5 years to mature depending on species.

Before mating the male must transfer sperm from the genital opening on segment 9 to the reproductive organs on segments and 3. Then on finding a female he grabs her by the neck with his claspers. She curves her body around until the tip of her abdomen touches his reproductive organs in segment 2 and 3 to collect the sperm. This is known as the copulation wheel. After mating the pair may fly in tandem with the male leading. Females mate with more than one male and store the sperm from the matings, although she tends to use the sperm from the last mating. The male mating organ contains a structure that allows him to scrape or push aside the sperm from previous matings before depositing his own in the most favorable spot.”   Bumblebee

Tour de France 100 Years

I have suffered through the World Cup craze. Now I will enjoy an even less popular event, Le Tour de France. Don’t know why…I love the stages through the Pyrenees & Alps. It is all good in my book. I don’t watch it all but enough to appreciate the risks, guts, strength and daring of the riders. Beautiful photography via helicopter too

BP Oil (The Villain & Your Focus)

I have noticed the eco frenzy and indignation amongst FF bloggers toward BP Oil. With good reason for sure. Without question for sure. But, your gaze and indignation should be broadened. You are falling prey to the usual misdirection shell game. The bugaboos of Big Oil, Big Banking etc. become your focus. What about your indignation, as well, for Obama, Petrobras, George Soros, Hess Oil, the Minerals Management Service and $10 Billion U.S. dollars pledged to help finance deep water drilling off Brazil? Criminality and collusion goes far beyond the BP Oil conglomerate and into the Green movement and the same financiers behind both scenes. Just a suggestion….follow the money. This is way bigger than BP Oil. Even Ted Williams should be capable of connecting the dots here. Oh no, he’s probably still writing about Cheney.

Boycott NRA (What Say You Ted Nugent?)

The NRA has sold its collective soul for the proverbial 20 pieces of plata (carve out for Disclose Act). Same old whores to power regardless of which screwed up party is in power and they just stuck a knife in the back of liberty. Boycott the NRA! Politics above principles. If you are a member…quit! Speak up Ted Nugent…quickly if you want to maintain any integrity.
