Sulphur #1 Just a quickie folks - I did see a few Sulphurs on the cabin this morning. They seem to be hatching now. When I fished this evening, I saw a few Grey Foxes and some rising fish, but got skunked! This endeavor always seems to humble me when I just start to get … Continue reading The Sulphurs are coming… the Suplhurs are coming!
The work that the Brown Trout Club does, entails purchasing and stocking fish to a section of Pine Creek. That statement is too simplistic to properly represent the amount of work that goes into running the show. I don't claim to know much more about the Brown Trout Club. I helped stock a feew years … Continue reading A Morning’s Fishing and The Brown Trout Club
No, it can't be. I wake up this morning, the twenty-first of May and... May 21st about 8am Just keep telling yourself it's May 21st not March 21st.

So... as I write this I am 'at the cabin'! I was able to leave, with permission from the local government, Sunday, returning to Slate Run for some projects I want to complete and to do some fishing. I headed down to the local metropolis to pick up some materials. Masked up, and with my … Continue reading Covid-19 Getaway
I've finally gotten to tying some flies again! And I can tell that I've taken a long break from it. I got an idea a few weeks ago and have pursued that project, which required me to tie a few to send off. Hopefully these might come in handy to the 'patient'. Hendrickson Spinner - … Continue reading 5-11-2020 A Couple of Old Spinsters
I haven't tied since last November! Tisk, tisk! COVID-19 Caddis Pupa - the first caddis tie in a long time for me! The first two were not respectable enough to present here! Talk about 'rough around the edges'! This was the third attempt I believe. And then... I have switched over to a newer homemade … Continue reading 4-24-2020 The COVID-19 Caddis

First of all, Happy Easter! Well, the past few weeks have been interesting to say the least. The 'Stay at Home' orders across the states vary a bit I think. We, in the state where I reside, were initially allowed to travel to second homes or properties owned. Not so anymore. Therefore I am not … Continue reading 4-12-2020: Happy Easter – Unfortunately This is Not a Fishing Report!
