Pointing the Way toward Excellence…..

little bear-smiling bear-wood carving-photography-East L.-Oregon-SwittersBI am sincerely pleased to acknowledge a nomination from Aquiliana at the enormously popular La Audacia de Aquiles for the Excellence Blog Award. Audacia de Aquiles is a most fascinating journey into Greek Mythology, history and the underpinnings to Western Civilization. Always fascinating to visit and learn. Thank you so very much Aquiliana!!! Gosh, I hope I got those vowels right.

As is consistent with the awards, I am to pass on this award to ten or so worthy creators and point the way to their site. There are so many wonderful bloggers out there and each award provides me the gift to point toward those amazing minds. With this award, you are kindly spared knowing the minutiae about SwittersB, so let me immediately point the way to my selections for the Excellence in Blogging Award.

Damsels to be distressed….

These are damsel fly patterns for stillwater (lake) fly fishing. I tied these four patterns (for the novice’s reference they are about an inch long) based on patterns I discovered back in 2008. They are variations of Jim Cope (Oregon) and Georgi Abbott (Logan Lake, B.C.) damsel patterns. The damsel patterns are highly effective on an intermediate or floating line worked around the edges of reeds and near the shoreline. The more static, slender Cope pattern or the fluffy, animated Georgi pattern never fail to produce in the fishy edges of a lake.

This shot was taken in full sunlight. I learned this six years ago when Tim Barker, over at Planet Trout (extraordinary site on not only fly tying & fly fishing but Hollywood history!) suggested photographing in direct sunlight.
