BMFS: HOPS & HOPPERS 12/05/2017

Another fun night at Lake Monster Brewing for Hops & Hoppers hosted by Bob Mitchell’s Fly Shop and Lake Monster Brewing.  I meant to tie a bunch of flies, but that didn’t happen.  So enjoy a bunch of pictures.
1st & 3rd Tuesday of each month.

Bret is a rad dude with laser like focus when he’s tying trout bugs.  He also in a band Too Pure To Die.

Focus.
Some times that focus affects Bret’s periphreal vision, and he has trouble sensing dangers in the form of A-A-Ron looking intently for the right opportunity to pounce on him.
Guys who wear undersized hats always find each other.

Here we have Drew and JoshJosh is really cool, and has some mad skillz at the vise.  Drew…we just don’t know about.

One of the guides that works out of Bob Mitchell’s Fly Shop is a super fishy dude, and his name is Evan.  He has a goal to tie 1 million of these white murdich minnows by winters end.  Not even 1 month in, he’s 1/3 of the way to his goal.

Grant and his wife are some pretty rad individuals.  They like cooking bacon on their flattop grill, and posting ridiculous pictures of each other on social media.

Awww so cute.

Below we have a picture of something that simply cannot be explained.  Rhea, Matt Ebbers, and myself just couldn’t keep a straight face while Grant just looked over at Ashley like this was a normal occurrence.  Can you take a guess at what was happening here?

Amazing.
Eddie Rivard has a black belt in bugs.  Here is a rare shot of him sharing his knowledge to Josh, Micah, and an unknown dude for free.

Do you know about The Driftless Flyer?  If you don’t, simply click on the name/link and do a bit of reading, and you will.  Did you know that it was that easy to know about something?  Now you do, and you’re welcome.  The Driftless Flyer is actually a 2 person team comprised of Micah and his wife Abigail.

Do you even trout, bruh?  Question for The Driftless Flyer

Mike Carina is super creative…how do I know?  Well, he has a website appropriately titled Carina Creative.

Eddie Rivard is also an International Fly Super Model.  Here he is helping Carlin Samela show off some of his most recent musky flies for free.  Such a charitable man that Eddie Rivard is.

Say Cheese.
Andrew Muntz is a flure tying machine.  Some people make balloon animals, but Andrew makes fly animals.  A little kid walked up to him at the brewery and asked him to whip up a lion, and he did.  Mad Skillz.
