You turned out to be a complete bust.

I’m a little disappointed, but hopefully this means I can fish sooner than I had originally hoped. Here are some more of the days ties…
Thank you for screwing up my fishing plans for the next few days. Until the waters recede, I’ve resorted to tying flies…as many as I can stand…new stuff and old stuff. Here are some deceivers…expect a few more of these posts over the next few days.
Thread: Light brown monocord
Hook: #8 scud
Tail: Partridge and brown sili legs
Body: Slate Drake dubbing, spun in loop around eyes.

Well, the earth gave the east coast a scare yesterday…enough so that my building got evacuated around 3pm…nice. While experts attribute the rumbling to a 5.9 earthquake in the DC area, I have my own theories…
Luckily, I turned my early dismissal into a couple hours of fishing. I scouted a couple new spots along the Wissahickon and found some fishy looking spots. The creek was still flowing a bit high, but I found one taker…he was hungry for crayfish.
I’m mailing out my flies today, so thought I would share the recipe:
Hook: #6 Streamer
Tail: Purple marabou and 4 strands pearl crystal flash
Body: Purple bugger chenille
Hackle: Purple strung saddle
Weight: lead wire
Bead: 3/16″ Hot pink cyclops bead
Yeah yeah, I know this film has been out since early this year. But I finally pulled the trigger and bought a copy last week, and I can’t believe I waited this long. Between the production quality, the story being told, and umm….the badass musky fishing by the guys from Musky Country Outfitters, this was a great watch.
Not to mention, the filmmaker, Robert Thompson, included a personal note with the movie, thanking me for the support. This may not seem like a big deal, but I doubt every other filmmaker does the same. So on the off chance that he reads this…thank you Robert, and keep up the awesome work!
Check out his site and his videos…you won’t be disappointed.
