You like surprises? I like surprises. Zane Porter from Fly Fishing Ruins Lives knocked it out the park with a painting he just did. I tied a small for big smallies. Same pattern I used all summer for the donks, but I swapped out bucktail in place of the craft fur. I posted it on…Read details
First, put on some Willie and Snoop.
Ok. Now. Here we go.
The master of the popper asked me to tie him a simple white streamer with a step by step. This streamer is what I throw for smallies. The only difference is I normally use craft fur.
Ok, here’s the deal. I’m giving one lucky person their choice of a 5wgt GPX or a 5wgt Ultimate Trout SHARKWAVE line from Scientific Anglers next Friday (1-24-14). You won’t be able to buy this line in shops until March so if you wanna be that cool kid on the block with the newest toy…Read details

Just like fishing for them when the water gets…Read details

When the marshmallow known as Fritz went to the park, I also took some photos of my 2007 Subaru Forester XT Sport. It’s one of the rarest of the rare. Urban Gray Metallic. 5 speed. Only 125 of them were made. I might have a problem with my addiction to my car.
This weekend Fritz and I went over to my favorite local creek so he could run around and act like the giant goofy mutt he is. It was damned cold and the snow was falling thick. I was the only person there. That alone is worth it’s weight in gold. The only tire tracks were…Read details
