Fly Fishing Scuds: Planet Trout’s End All…………………

Please go to Planet Trout and take a detailed look at all Tim Barker has put together regard fishing scuds in rivers and lakes. The photography, materials inventory, the attention to detail for this piece is exceptional. Any freshwater fly fisher world wide should save this piece and review it often. And, as I have mentioned before if you have a penchant for Hollywood history delve into Tim’s site and you might be well surprised…(hint: Susan Hayward). I fixed the earlier glitch re link.

The Open Road Looks So Good………..

Open Road 1 SwittersB

Henceforth I ask not good fortune ~ I myself am good fortune;

Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing,

Strong and content, I travel the open road.

The Finer Four: Delicate & Lively

I put together this macro collage of four fly tying materials that are special for smaller flies (even larger). The materials (Pheasant Tail, Ostrich, Starling, Peacock) are truly wonderful, natural materials that manage well on the smaller flies (16-22). Also, I have found them to be fairly durable (yet delicate) to handle while applying. Give them a try for tails, abdomens, thorax, wings, shucks, legs. They are usually available in fly shops and online.
