Exceptional Service: Pacific Fly Fishers

I recently had a need to deal with Pacific Fly Fishers out of Mill Creek, Washington (just north of Seattle). Michael Bennett was timely in handling my needs and gave perfect customer service through the process. Check out their excellent shop website. Do business with them.  I enjoyed it.

Fly Fishing: Teasing the Seam

October Caddis, Deschutes River

Whether from the bank, or from a boat that holding water between the seam and the bank is often the prime holding water as hatches take place or the flies return to deposit eggs. Red’s Fly Shop (Yakima, Wa.) presents some nice, basic information here from the guide on how to best present the fly. Mother’s Day Caddis (videos) or the looming October Caddis the information is worthwhile.

The Bank, The Seam, The Riffle

Art and Creativity: Yes, Fly Tying

The Bare Medium (Well Almost Bare) to Create

It is time to check out whether there is a local fly tying class offered near you. Most classes start in September or October and run through the late Winter. Whether you take it from a fly shop, community college, rec center, private lessons…however, it will enhance your overall enjoyment of fly fishing.

Do you recall being a child in elementary school? That wonderful time came around for Art Class. Fun sessions of molding clay or finger painting, pasting pieces of paper together, eating paste, crayons and drawing. Everyone did it, some better than others, but everyone participated and were creative in some form or fashion. Dare I say it….fly tying is like that. At the elementary level, it is about basic creations that let you follow instructions, avoid instructions (just like back then), create, take pride, sigh or sit and stare. And, if you just put a little effort into it, you will create pieces of art that seduce not only you but the fish! Give it a try.
