[This was very distracting... was too distracted by taking images to tie really nice flies and was too distracted by tying flies to take really good pics... fo gigure.]

There will be several distinct patterns in this series, but they are all sort of a blur to me, all pretty much tied out of the same materials. I have never found that any one version out performs the others; each does its own thing and has its own time and place. We are working with two iridescent materials which are...

Living in the "DACKS"

Hey all, I just wanted to share a little bit about living in the north eastern part of the Adirondacks "DACKS" in New York.
What can I say about the dacks? We live in a small town in the woods. We are only 20 miles from the US/Canadian border, about 60 miles from Montreal and it is these woods that I call home.
The temps have finally returned to normal, mid 40s and low 50s. Last few weeks have been in the mid 60s to low 70s. Just about all the leaves are gone...

My journey started about 5 years ago when I married the girl of my dreams and decided to move to the Adirondacks in New York. I am originally from a small town (Chateauguay) just off the island of Montreal. Canada. I fished with my Dad...

Fur On Hide Processing

Hide Processing:

NOTE: Do NOT process hides if you have open cuts on your hands without laytex or nitril gloves. Be sure to REALLY wash your hands and forearms when the processing is complete. If you do manage to get an infected cut, it will grow that lovely red line up your arm rather quickly. With the warning given, I will state that I have done will over 100 times in my life with no problems and that I some woodchuck hides in my tying materials that were processed this way over...
