It’s been awhile since we last had a post on here, so it’s about time we get back to one every now and then. This one features a few videos from Scumliner Media (follow the link to check out their Vimeo page).
How can it be that we’re already at Memorial Day weekend? Wherever this weekend finds you, have a great time.
Oh, and grab your cup of coffee to enjoy what we have for you this week before you head out of town!
Mopey from mayflies? Crazy from caddis? Dried out on dry flies? Look no further – in today’s Fly Tying Video Feature we’re looking at some of the more creative end of the spectrum.
The summer of 2016 was really hot around here, and coupled with a vacation to a place along Lake Michigan, I (Caleb) was looking into what exactly it took to catch carp on a fly rod. Between Jay Zimmerman’s great book, The Best Carp Flies: How to Tie and Fish Them, and a number of good articles on that (including this one), I was intrigued. I’m still learning a lot, so I’ll admit up front that I’m not an expert at all.
There’s a big game here tomorrow as the Penn State Nittany Lions prepare to take on the Michigan Wolverines. ESPN College Gameday will be here too – it should be a great game! In the meantime, relax by grabbing your coffee and enjoying this week’s Friday Five.
We have some good selections for your reading and viewing pleasure this week, ranging from fishing tips to tying videos to fly box organization. Grab your cup of coffee, pull up a chair, and enjoy!
Over the past two months I’ve had some time here and there to do some experimenting with different fly patterns amidst the normal tying. No originality is claimed on any of these, since they’re all based (to varying degrees) on existing patterns. It’s always good to experiment!
Over the weekend I took some time to reorganize some of my fly boxes (much needed, for sure). The goal was to have a box to use specifically for warmwater and carp flies, on top of my bigger box for articulated streamers (3-5 inches long). It took a bit of time in the morning on Saturday, but I wanted to share the results.
This Friday features four selections for you to enjoy. The topics include casting tips, fly tying, and Beaver Island, Michigan. Have at it!
Friday has come around again. Grab your coffee or morning beverage of choice, pull up a chair, and enjoy this week’s “Things Worth Reading” – 5 articles on ticks, carp, trout flies, angler position, and some great wild game recipes.
