Re: Time To 'Fess Up...

Re: Why do you fly fish ?

For me a hard answer. I began on my 12th Birthday, sort of. I had the stuff and no knowledge but I started learning at that time. My best friend was a fly fisher of some little ability as well but he...

Re: Rainbow Trout Pics

Larry that Bow you showed is just beautiful. The Rainbow's on the Crowsnest where I fish have a very similar look with a dense population of spots like that.

Thanks Von, I will have a look as well. I am a tool geek so I often end up buying stuff and giving it away but every 10 or so gadgets I find something I like. Thanks for the initial post.

Not as fine as some of the pre-made bodies but the foam cut-out can be trimmed up a bit to make it look a bit cleaner.
