Reading the water

In my heart of hearts, I am a stream fisher. While I love plugging for bass in a farm pond, or trolling a big reservoir, or bottom fishing for Ling Cod off the Farallon Islands, moving water draws me like a magnet. I have fished for trout, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, crappie, catfish, striped bass and a wide array of Sunfish in streams. A good part of my affinity for moving water is that I find it easier to locate my quarry.

Fly tying: Simple is the best

Fly Tying is among my many vices. On the surface, you'd think that a hobby that consists of wrapping a few strands of fur, feathers, and thread around a hook would be among the simplest of pastimes. What could be less stressful than sitting at a desk creating beautiful works of art with exotic names like the "Royal Coachman", or the "Pale Sulfur Dun"? Nothing could be further from the truth. Actually fly tying is an addictive form of mental illness from which few people recover.
