Going fishing!

Well the timing might, or might not be the best as far as conditions go; but come hell or high water we're going! Very excited to get the spey rod back in hand and swing for some fresh incoming winter steel. I realize the a big part of the excitement of any trip is the pre-trip anticipation. Sitting at the vise and knowing thinking about how certain flies will swim always makes me happy, and sometimes you just feel it when you see one taking shape and finally being finished up. With that in mind, I thought I might share a little of my excitement with everyone.
... and yes, I do have plenty more for the trip. Hope the holidays bring much happiness and joy, and perhaps even a little luck your way.
Cheers, JB

Some really nice flees you have there
Where you headed fishing ??
Sometimes leading up to the trip holds as much excitement as the trip itself .


Have you Swung a Spey Fly today ??

Thanks guys. Mike, the trip is by necessity a bit on the flexible side. We're heading up the north coast of California to Hood River, hopefully finding a few places with some greenish flowing water (rather than MUD). We couldn't have timed this one much worse... but then again our enjoyment, and our chances, will be much higher venturing out than spending that same time at home. I have a few ideas for some stops along the way, but honestly we'll just have to see what we get.

I have a creek that runs through my property here in S. Oregon that is normally about 10 ft wide, I thought about grabbing the 13 footer this morning to practice in it! I hope you can find some decent water on the coast! And nice flies too

Have a blast, fly selection certainly will not be an issue.

This link will make your life a lot easier .... flood gauges-Oregon.

The link includes every 'flood gauge' in the State of Oregon. Just go to the section of the State you''re interested and click on appropriate blue map number. Many of the readings can be less than 30 minutes old.


Where the Jollies will come in is the entire Coast has just gotten pounded with heavy rains over the past week. Not unusual to get a good storm coming onto the Coast but this time TWO major one's collided and turned into one monster.

Major Cool Factor going on with those flies of yours!

There is a lot of sweat and tears on those irons. Beautiful tying, and I hope each one brings you a tug!
