Caddis Pupa Pattern

Lest you forget, or never knew, SwittersB & Exploring was until recently SwittersB & Fly Fishing. A still passionate pursuit of fish via the fly exists for SwittersB. Along that pursuit’s pathway is all manner of photographic experiences in the beautiful outdoors. Here is a handy, enormously successful fly pattern, a Bead Head Caddis Pupa pattern. A little macro photography fun along with tweaking the image too.

Obstacles in life

“Often it isn’t the mountains ahead that wear you out, it’s the little pebble in your shoe.”

Attributed to Muhammad Ali…Hmm? I guess if he came up with ‘float like a butterfly, sting like a bee’ he could have come up with the mountain/pebble quote.

Live Now…..Tempus Fugit

“A doctor to whom I occasionally talk suggest that I have made an inadequate adjustment to aging. Wrong, I want to say.  In fact I have made no adjustment whatsoever to aging.  In fact I had lived my entire life to date without seriously believing that I would age.”  Joan Didion (Blue Nights)

“We have enough youth. How about a fountain of smart?” (Unknown)

Tempus Fugit…time flies…how much we are caught up in seeking youth, fitness, mental harmony, peace of mind, forgiveness. All well in good, but as we try to transform ourselves and get caught up in those processes, time flies ever faster. Life can pass us by as we work too hard, stress too hard, attempt to transform ourselves too hard. From the fountain of truth: forget the youth…live everyday as if it’s your last, because you will surely come to realize that years have flown by as you tinkered or toiled away at some nebulous otherly you.

Shadows: Distractions, Baggage

“Beware lest you lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.” Aesop

“I don’t need a friend who changes when I change, nods when I nod; my shadow does that much better.” Plutarch
