Donna whats up, why does the text look like crap before I click the “more” button? It doesn’t look like that in preveiw.
First, a note.
So this Blog thing is very new to me, I am making it up as I
go along (obviously). I would
really like to make it into something that my friends and clients find useful
so please, if you have any criticisms or comments let me know. There is no way I can improve without your input. Also, go ahead and make your comment
right at the bottom of the page, it really helps my search engine listings,
which helps me reach more clients.
If you don’t want me to post your comment just put that in your message
and I won’t put it up.

feel the rocks as your sink tip and fly brush over them.
Egg Sucking Leach, Trusty and easy to tie
As I go through a run the first time I am just
experimenting, checking out the possibilities, trying to feel for the slow soft
water and the deeper pockets. The
second time through is to memorize, find the snags, see how close you can come
without hanging up, see what rocks you can stand on to give you the best
The third time through I am fishing, and I probably want to
fish it twice. In a really tough
piece of water this can mean 15 flies, so having some that are easy to tie,
cheap and effective is key
