Crazy blog love

I've been reading a ton of blogs from other people, and I thought I'd share some recent posts/blogs that pretty much rock.

1.There's a fly tying contest over on TreartonFly, the blog created by one of our readers, Gaeron. Go participate and show his blog some love. He ties some really nice flies.

2.Normand came up with a great link to make your own barred rubber legs over on Fly Tying New and Old. I swear, I learn something every time I read his site.

3.Fish On, Fish Off, a website by our newest google follower (welcome!), has some great fishing stories and even better seafood recipes. (I do love my shellfish)

4.Bigerrfish has a great day of fishing. (I just love this guy's posts about his fish. They are always a story)

5.Owl Jones has a podcast now. The first 30 seconds had me in tears. "This is a podcast, I'm supposed to cast some pods". This is the only site where you can get info on fly fishing, and pics of child beauty pageants and jarred pigs feet in one location.

In other news, I attended my first fly tying class tonight. It is being taught at an LL Bean in Center Valley PA by George Maciag. It's mostly geared towards people who never tied a fly before and the only pattern we tied tonight was a San Juan worm, but I still learned something. His explanation on aught vs. denier thread was great. The course is 29 weeks and the patterns will get more advanced each week. I had a great time and I look forward to next week. I'm also very curious to see how fast the people who never tied a fly before start to progress. Once the patterns get more advanced, I'll be sure to post some here.

Well, I'd love to maybe post some patterns, but a new Halo Reach map pack came out, and I have some 9% belgian beer, so the vise is getting ignored tonight. Peace out.


  1. trentonfly is a great young guy! I have been a follower of his and also normands. I like his style of flies! Who doesn't love owl as well. Great post

  3. A 29 week class, wow! I am going to go ahead and guess that you are going to learn a ton of new tricks.

  4. Biggerfish I forgot I was following you, You have a GREAT blog page as well! Great shoutouts!

  5. Thanks for the shout out! I'm glad you guys like my flies!
