NAHOOP!!! Disclaimer: I have not fished this particular fly in the past - and, this is the first time tying it. Note: There's an SRS Calendar Update at end of this post. So I finally took some time to tie something. And if you've ever tied streamers or articulated things in the past, you know … Continue reading Friday Night Flies Presents…

My tying den is a wreck and I need to do some serious cleaning out before I start to tie. Hopefully I'll accomplish this and display/contribute a few ties in the next installment. I preface tonight's … Continue reading Friday Night Flies Presents…

But there was a … Continue reading 2-15-2020: An Uncommon Visitor
Looks like Punxsutawney Phil did NOT see his shadow so we’re in for an early Spring – right? Here some 500 miles West of where most of the SRS members live, I have seen the sun today! Yes, it still exists and is quite bright here today. The local weather guy was saying that we’ve … Continue reading 2-2-2020: Groundhog Day – There’s the Rub!
We’ve had a few arrivals here. I’m sure its happening everywhere – but I reported last Winter that the first sighting of a Red Winged Blackbird was on February 27th.
