About dennyk
Hi all, well I'm 59 years young and up until 2014 was a traditional bowhunter, I was forced to end that career due to blown triceps in both arms. A friend of mine talked me into getting a crossbow. I took deer with it but the challenge is not the same and I ceased having fun with it.

Enter my renewed love of fly tying and fly fishing. Despite the circumstances of how it came to be, God saved this for a time in my life that I can really appreciate it .

My wife and I are empty nesters with a beautiful daughter and 3 awsome grand daughters. I know they are gonna want to go fishin' with grandpa. Looking foreward to taking kids fishing.

For employment I have worked in the printing trade for the last 40 years and through the good times and bad I am truly Blessed.

To borrow a phrase of a man I have great respect for:

"Keep The Son In Your Eyes"

Glad to be here!

Streamer Fishing for Steelhead and Trout

The articles are in no specific order, they are posted as I locate them so you'll have to click and look to see if it is of interest.

Same kind of thing for mayflies, usually soft hackle - parachute - something on surface.

Belgian cast

The standard Belgian cast is a low sidearm backcast with an immediate transition to an overhead or higher sidearm, forward cast. The rod tip goes in an OVAL path without a stop, hence the name “constant tension” cast and “oval” cast in addition to the name “Belgian” cast. The reverse Belgian is a high sidearm or vertical backcast connected to a lower sidearm cast.
