Fly Tying: Streamer Patterns Aggregated

I was contemplating tying up some enticing streamer patterns for some large mouth bass that eluded my last year but will succumb this year to my creations. I thought of Simon Graham, a guru of streamer patterns for Pike. I recalled (see my mind is just flitting all about) that Simon may have moved from Finland back to his original home of South Africa (or was he vacationing?).

At any rate, Simon could perhaps offer up instructions on how to tie those baitfish patterns that might be applicable to these rather large LMB’s I have been thinking about all Winter.

Well, in searching out his name to see if he had moved, I could not get a sense from his site. But, I came upon another site that not only had Simon’s how to’s but numerous other how to’s for Pike streamers. Check out RodTrips’ Aggregated grouping of how to tie Pike Fly Streamers Tutorials….Simon’s blogs are in my blog roll, right side column too.

The Essence of it all: The Trout & The Water

Came upon this lovely video that is the essence of fly fishing (at least for me). No strategy, no presentation, no rod or reel. Just like stopping, watching, relaxing and seeing~feeling peace of mind and heart. Front Side Fly Fishing has other videos as well. It is easy to be a bit jaded or saturated with all the very stimulating fish porn vid’s out there. This one, in its simplicity, is nice to just relax and watch.

Beautiful Trout SwittersBxIt is euphoric, for me, to bring a beautiful fish to hand…to admire it, to celebrate its beauty and power. But also, it is equally satisfying, at times, to admire their beauty at their own pace, their way…without attaching strategic considerations.
