A little more then a week ago I thought I would get out and fish. Well, with a couple days of rain in a row, the creeks and rivers swelled from their banks, started washing over streets and then started to carry houses away. So needless to say I did not even attempt to fish last week. But I have my fingers crossed that the mountain streams will be down in the next couple days and I can at least take my new 3wt for a spin.
Now maybe you as a blog reader are saying "Bruce you need to blog about these things so we can see what you are doing" - well that is my bad. I have not been good about it but fishing season is coming up and hopefully my blog will be chalk full of trips. Until then I will be showing off more flies, and maybe some hikes (because the weather has been nicer - that is when it is not raining), and I have been kicking around the idea of a giveaway!
Let me show you what I do when I go bug eyed after tying too many size 22 dry flies. The short background story is one of my best friends gave me a Dremel tool as a wedding gift. He handed it to Sarah and me and then said sorry to Sarah because he knew it would be mine in five minutes (I used it on our honeymoon, but that is another story for another time). So I bought some diamond tips for it and started playing with glass etching. I have etched glasses as gifts ever since.
|This is the one I made for Sarah's blog thing. Oh and if you wear dresses today is Tuesday put one on.|
|These are the other 3, a brook trout, a rainbow after a dry fly, and a streamers.|
|Some nice angled shots, thanks to my photographer (Sarah).|
|Better look at that streamer, all of these are done free hand so they are not perfect.|
