unnamed short story

Posted 10-28-2013 at 01:07 PM by mikel

The autumn chill had a bit of steam coming off the water and there was gold along the banks...just the way it had been each of the 42 years he'd come here. Ever changing, yet ever the same, this water called to him as no other. With a sigh and a little smile pulled his old 5 weight friend from a battered tube and rigged up. Fifty yards downstream, at the top of Sal's hole, a sickly salmon rolled.

Sal was long dead, but 35 years ago he had taken a tumble there, filling his waders with...

Hello all.
Well as you can see we got a little snow here in the Dacks this week. Temps have been dropping and are in the 30s during the day and high 20s at night. Fall is a great time to be here in the adirondacks, there are lots of festivals going on like the octoberfest, and lets not forget all the fright fests and pumpkin smashing.

[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...
