Newb Fly Tying 2

Written by
The addiction to fly tying has taken hold.  I am very lucky and blessed to have some great friends teach me and provide some products.  After chatting with a co-worker I tried to tie some more flies using less and shorter hair.  They turned out ok, but still didn’t look that good.  I shared these with my co-worker and he…

The previous record was held by neighboring Wisconsin’s who drilled over 15,000 holes on Butternut Lake. Spoof blog post and all this is a pretty cool drone video from what locals call…

Newbie Fly Guy

Written by
