Sorry to hear about the tough times, Howard. The deep blues can be hard to shake, especially at this time of year. Perhaps you could use them for a writing project and write them into the clear?

Happy holidays, Ralph. Love the innovation with this fly!

The rain has been relentless all season long in some areas close by. Some streams have been full and stable, thus providing some good fishing (step with care!), and others have suffered a lot of flood damage of late. All in all, stream and river fishing has been a challenge for at least a month or so!

At least you had plenty of water to cast on, those pesky tree limbs not withstanding. And the fact you had some good companionship to share the fun and misery with is worthy also. Howard, I know what you mean about that mountain weather in summer. Last August we hit a brief but intense snowstorm up around Leadville somewhere, never expecting it, given the hot weather down there in the valleys.

A missed trip, spurred on by a wonderful recollection like this, means the next one will be on the money, starting off by saying thank you to the early morning alarm.

Howard, There are trolls out there who enjoy dampening the spirit of anyone online who differs from their own point of view or writing style. Screw 'em. If you see the light and it seems to be a positive fixture, keep 'er going and enjoy. B/t/w, just got back from my mountain adventures, so I've got some catching up to do with all you guys, and then to share some stories...

To explore our local place of land and water is more important than most people think. If we get good at it we can graduate outward and do the same, but it seldom seems quite as rich or interesting until we bring it on home again. You've got it, Howard.

Cool and organized, Howard. Some classic ties there. Should work really well when you get back on the stream.

Cool variants, Ralph. Reminds me of a tailless dry fly that I purchased when I was a kid, no doubt for its unique name. I don't think I ever fished it, so I'll have to look for the fly and see if it's been spared the moths of time.
