  1. Out Fishing With Big League Bob

    Big League Bob is one of my favorite customers at the shop. He was a pitcher during the late '60s in the Major League. It's enjoyable to hear his stories of his career and his commentary on what's going on in the MLB today.

    Last Saturday, he came into the shop to get some help on a caddis soft hackle that I tie up for the shop. After an hour of tying bugs and talking of some local waters, Bob paid for his materials, we shook hands, and he left.

  4. Teaching a Rookie

    My dirty little secret is that I work part time for a local fly shop. It's good supplemental income that helps pay for my fly fishing habit.

    Last week a young lady (let's call her Miss C.) took the shop's intro to fly fishing class. She enjoyed the class so much, that she decided to buy an outfit. Being the nice guy that I am, I offered to take her fishing to the Lower Yuba River which isn't the most friendly rookie trout fishery.

    Fast forward to yesterday evening. ...
