Stillwater Dragon Fly…

Oregon Rainbow Trout, Caught/Released by SwittersB

The abdomen of the dragon fly pattern is densely wound marabou (staggered colors) in a dubbing loop. The shaggy body is then trimmed with scissors or a razor blade (I prefer scissors). A wound hackle for legs and pheasant tail fibers for the wing case over the top of the plastic dumbbell eyes. The head here is dubbing but can be wound marabou fibers or ostrich herl fibers. I do not weight this pattern but prefer to take it subsurface with an Intermediate sink line fishing the shoreline of lakes out to the drop.

Fishing: Recycling your waders….

Saw this idea at Deneki Outdoors & Epic Angling where one takes your leaking (can’t salvage them) boot foot/stocking foot waders and cut off the neoprene boots. Now you have an industrial strength set of rain pants/bibs that while worn with rubber boots will out do any typical pair of bibs. Great idea. I have an old pair of Simms Guides that will soon fall into this category.

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.”
