"The Current Days", in response to Gary's recent post.

I realized I hadn't contributed a thing in quite a while, and Gary's beautiful post got me moving.

I collaborated with two fishing buddies for a contribution to the recent Native Fish Society fundraising auction. The flies mounted below the photograph are three of each of their favorites, tied in hand by Jeremiah Bawden (GreenSpot Jerry) and Adrian Cortes (fshnazn). I mounted the bugs, but had my regular picture framer take care of the framing work.

The photograph is mine, and if you can look closely you can see Jeremiah near the head of the run, and Adrian down below.

My apologies for the dark photo- just a quick iPhone pic at the framers before dropping off to the auction.

Trying new things, bud. And the learning curve is tough. Besides, my sketching/painting/carving plate is full.

Cheers, down south.
