be prepared to row…

“He that embarks on the voyage of life will always wish to advance rather by the impulse of the wind than the strokes of the oar; and many fold in their passage; while they lie waiting for the gale.’” Samuel Johnson, 1770

beauty unfolding…

this time of year (although I have friends in the Rocky Mountain region with more snow this morning). The blossoms on trees, shrubs and plants are a beautiful prelude to the sustained colors of Summer.

‘Vintage’ Pattern: Carey Special

Carey Special-Fly Pattern-SwittersB

Another ‘vintage’ stillwater (lake) fly pattern…the Carey Special. Peacock Herl body w/ Pheasant Rump feather fibers for tail and same for a wrapped wing material. This is the classic look. The pattern lends itself to substitutions of body material/color and the wing material can be substituted as long as feather fibers extend at least the length of the abdomen. I don’t weight this pattern with a BH or underbody wrap. Size 10, 2xl. I fish this with an Intermediate sink line either hand retrieved or with the lazier troll along presentation.

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
