9-28-10 new flies

 When I get things in the mail that I ordered online I feel a slight tweak of joy. The most recent purchase was from FTD. My favorite online material store. As far as quality goes its right up there with the big names and a quarter of the price. If you use synthetic material you should buy your stuff here. I haven't bought any real animal materials(I have enough zonker strips to last a while) but I have always been happy with this place. All this was a little over $21. I dare you to get this much in any store whether it be a hobby store or fly shop and not spend more.

 So the temporary desk is now my dining table. The dope ass roll top desk is still in "storage". Until we move to a real house I have to use time wisely. And tie fast.
My first minnow patterns in over a year took one to get back into the groove. But even without eyes these look pretty fishy! The rust color Congo hair is going to make one hell of a root beer crab!

Texas tailwater

Me and Nick. Cousins, brothers, fishing machines. When you cast for 5+ hours straight your arm is sore. And when you stumble around in a river for longer than that your body will have unusually sore parts that didn't seem to bother you at the time. Maybe I'm just getting old. But it happens to the best of us! Regardless any day spent like this is a good one. I am loving the summer trout hunt. I'm a little wary of the shoulder to shoulder fishing that goes on in the winter. I think Ill just stick with wading in the salt water for now.

No bags and consumer me.

I have been following Rolf Potts on his recent NBC(no baggage challenge) for a couple weeks now. Its a cool thing.


Also It was recently my birthday. 30......Wtf. What happened? Anyways I ordered some materials from the dungeon. Ill post flies when they are utilized. Hopefully soon.


Also I just played the demo for Vanquish. Amazing. So fun. Reminded me of lost planet and zone of the enders.

There are so many good looking games coming out between the end of 10 and the first half of 11 Im going to have to make a few decisions. Ive also given up on reaching rank 100 in GoW2. I looked at the calculator and Im not even half way there as far as points and the games been out for over 3 years. F that.

I havent been able to do any fly fishing with my work schedule and the wind. But I caught some flounder last Sat and made some kick ass civiche to boot out of a redfish.
