One of my most recent customers had an awesome outing on a river here in Illinois. He was able to hook up with about 7 northern pike with the first flies that he has purchased from me. He was more than pleased with the flies, and the pike were, as well – just look at that smile. 🙂
I love hearing about people having success with something that I created. Nothing pleases me more!
I’ve been sick for the past 5 days. Bummer, because, it was extremely nice out this past weekend with weather in the 40’s. I am hoping that I will be able to get out and we a line this upcoming weekend. Fingers Crossed!

  1. Always great, as you say, when someone uses some of your flies and catches some nice fish. Sure keeps a fly tyer motivated…………………. Get to feeling better, those fish have been on break long enough!

  2. I tied some flies for The River Damsel and she kindly posted some pictures of what the fish did to them and she said they worked really well. That's a good feeling since I didn't feel they were my best flies. Get Well!

  3. We're all so critical of ourselves, especially, when it comes to a craft. It's funny, because, there have been many times I have gone out with flies that I tied that I thought looked like garbage, but the fish didn't seem to think so. I always get a good laugh at that.
