Temperature Extremes & Fishing

Remember when your fingers were aching, then numb? The East wind cut through the layers. The ice formed in the guides. You actually, for a moment, wondered ‘how much longer’. (Upfront: My Son, Tony)

Come January, will you remember today’s temp?

Toxic Spill Peru Mining Op…Villagers Sickened

Peru Copper Mine Slurry Spills from Broken Pipe

Fly Tying: Wired for Depth

A Bead Head Pupa pattern. I used two different colored pieces of copper wiring wrapped over the simple thread body. Contrast, segmentation and weight. The busy hackle and thorax materials (Ice Dub, ostrich and partridge) add to the suggestion of life.

An even simpler fly, equally dense to quickly sink. Copper wire tied in at the front of the shank and closely wrapped toward the end then used to rib forward over the wire abdomen. The dubbing ball for the thorax hides the tie in point for the copper wire.
