The Swarm Before the Storm (as in stormy weather… at least showery weather)

Basically, it's spinner-time for the Green Drakes! Wednesday and Thursday evenings were interesting fishing in Pine Creek. Green Drakes have been showing up over the course of the past 5 to 7 days with intensities starting slowly and coming to a peak just before late this week.

Friday Night Flies Presents… Not a Hair Outta Place Fly Tying – and… an Excursion from last Weekend for Harry!

Well, it's damn COLD! I say this with a grin as it was quite a cold day today given the wind that accompanied a thermometer that struggled to reach 55. I attended a Pine Creek Watershed Council meeting that took place at pavilion #1 in Colton State Park this morning. That was a bit nippy! … Continue reading Friday Night Flies Presents… Not a Hair Outta Place Fly Tying – and… an Excursion from last Weekend for Harry!

Not a Hair Outta Place Fly Tying Presents – Friday Night Flies

Opening Up Alright, this is either early or late - sue me, or better yet, fire me. So, this post could be about, a) communicating with someone and being less reserved, b) businesses opening their doors again in an effort to get back to normal, c) making a trip to the cabin for the first … Continue reading Not a Hair Outta Place Fly Tying Presents – Friday Night Flies
