Steelhead23, funny thing about the Scotch: I had a wee nip of Lagavulin from my flask in celebration of our last evening on a famous pool. Emma made this guttural sound behind me as the aroma of fine single malt reached young nares. I flashed a look toward the retching sound and laughed as she exclaimed, "Aaccck! How do you drink that?!"
Thanks for the kind words, Rich.
HandPlanedCane, great to see you again. Wonderful pictures. It was fun to share the campfire with you there.
She loved your pattern. I recall 2 moments: I tied on a Steelhead Caddis on her tippet one afternoon. This fly had actual feathers from Bill McMillan. The pattern was tied on a gold downeye gifted from Steelhead23. It was waking and muddling in and out of the surface, Emma rose a steelhead with it deep in a tailout but didn't connect. She then said "It doesn't stay up like the Wang".
At another time I tell her that I should have brought a tying vise so she could experience raising a steelhead on her own fly. Emma counters,"Why? There is only one fly needed and it's the Little Wang".
Great to see you and Wendi there.
