Re: January is dry fly season...

Thanks for the report Joe. I'm glad you had a chance to fish while you were there. Sounds like it was definitely worth the time. That New Zealand Cricket is definitely a guide fly. Great example of what really matters, presentation and size/silhouette. Good stuff!

Re: Fly Fest 2019

Weather permitting, I will be there. Always a fun day! Maybe this year I will stop talking and actually tie some flies.

Re: Trico's

I like to fish to any rising fish no matter what the bug is...So I look forward to the summer Tricos. I have several patterns that imitate both male and female duns and spinners and have had success with both duns, spinners and sunken spinners.

Wow.sounds like you’re still firmly in the grasp of winter up there. The weather here is crazy. Snowed pretty much al...
