Undoubtedly insanity has its plusses. :P Looks good. What size and what are you using if for?

I have spent to many days at home :shock: They are calling for another big one Tuesday. Spring Break is becoming a memory I'm afraid.

Tarantulas make great dries for dry dropper rigs when bigger bugs are around.

That's one of the best bugs around. Period. Colin ties a nice one that I fished last year, and it to' 'em up.

Guy Tutck created that fly for the Jackson Hole One-Fly around 1990. Somebody else fished it, not Guy, but the fly won the contest that year.

It's a beast is all it is.

Nice job, Brad.

Yer Pal,

Brad, my girls had school today. I don't ever remember going to school on Sat. This is one crazy winter. I need to wet a line, but don't have the gear to ice fish! :?
