  1. Moving Toward Spring Now;

    I'm procrastinating right now. We finally had cold weather for almost 5 weeks and there is more snow out at the cabin than I need for access. The deeper it is the harder the trip. What I must do is to drive to a bulk fuel depot and fill 3 drums with gasoline and then take them 37 miles to Willow AK. where they will be loaded onto my freight sled for transport to the cabin. I don't know whether I want to make the run on Monday (tomorrow) or later in the week but I have to do it soon. Last year I ...

Generally the river portion of the trip is uneventful because they are the main artery of supply and travel into the Interior. These are the rivers that races ...

  4. Wilkinson Sunray step by step

    I got a little thick with the materials on this particular fly but was reluctant to do a second for this post. Trying to get good photos while tying is hard enough without having a redo.....

    First thing to know is that I use the Pro Sportfisher line of tube fly components, you may have HMH or another brand so you may have to skip some things or not.

    I am now using the 40mm tubing with the extension cut to about 1/2 inch behind the body of the fly. Having a shorter extension ...

  5. Beginner or not this may make sense.

    From my experiences I gave some fly fishing 101 advice. It seemed good enough to preserve so I'm putting it here. Maybe it can help you too?
