Happy Thanksgiving & Blessings to All

Give thanks for all you have. It may be a lot and you take it for granted, or it may seem like you have nothing and pass on the finding something to be thankful for self quiz. Yesterday, I overheard three men talking. They were considering this year and what Thanksgiving Day meant for them.

One remarked that he had lost his wife after four, seemingly continuous, years of fighting cancer. He dreaded the holidays this years. He didn’t want to deal with his older kids that were attempting to draw him into their celebrations to ease his loss and loneliness. But, he said he was going to go to ‘keep his daughter happy. She was having a rough time this year’.

A second man said it was just his wife and himself. He was looking forward to just enjoying a quiet Thanksgiving because he had spent the last three years in prison. He had lost the support of his family. His wife had stood by him. He was thankful this year to feel normal and ‘taken care of’.

The third man complained about the gathering being at his home this year and all the kids that would make racket and the cleanup. He wasn’t looking forward to all the noise and being around people he didn’t really ‘have patience for’ . He didn’t comment about the other two men’s conditions.

The conversation wound down and the men turned away from each other. The facial expressions on the first two men revealed much to me. They were a mix of emotions that fanned across their faces in seconds to disappear. I think they were thankful. The third man seemed oblivious to his blessings. This brief snippet of eavesdropping made me reflect upon my blessing this year. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

New Fly Fisher: Take Fly Tying Classes

As Fall nears this is a great time to contact your local fly fishing shop or community college and check out the availability of fly tying classes. It is a never ending  journey when learning fly fishing. Adding fly tying and fishing with your own creations elevates the enjoyment of solving puzzles of fly fishing. ‘The moment’ when you hook and play a fish on one of your creations will put a big smile on your face.

Wet Fly Pattern (The Goblin)

The Goblin (SwittersB)

The Goblin (SwittersB)

Just a little ditty, of the old stripe, to celebrate Fall and whatever might intercept on the swing. Nothing fancy: Size 6-10 hook, 3/0 to 6/0 thread body with gold tinsel ribbing, orange Ice Dub Thorax, black hackle and orange Krystal flash.

More celebratory than functional perhaps. Basic wet pattern…choose your own colors.

the Orb Callibaetis emerger

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

variations of the callibaetis emerger called The Orb by Switters B. I have common theme of ostrich tail, ostrich abdomen for gills ribbed with wire and a thorax of various components and then the orb bead (some with an underwrap of tinsel beneath the bead and some without).
