My Apologies.....

I'd like to take this time to formerly apologize for the lack of activity on the blog as of late.  Most of you who know me personally would only assume that I had bitten off more than I could chew once again; your assumptions were correct!   The last of the larger renovations to our little cape style house are now behind us, and after several weeks with our furniture packed into one room of the house and the garage, we can finally say that things are somewhat normal; well if there is such a thing as normal. 
This New Second Hand L-Shaped Desk Should Suffice

Minor last minute tweaks have been going on weekly with the final stages of the book prior to it's release (what a process), and a little face lift of sorts took place in the tying shop.  I finally have a work station that will suffice, but once again, I will forever need more space.  I have begun work on some new flies that show a great deal of promise, and now that my life is back in order, I will make good on some fly videos that I have simply just not had the time to put together.  Life at it's finest, but I am pretty sure with a sound level of certainty that many of you out there can relate. 
Getting Back On The Production Wagon

The fishing, despite the lower water and lack of rain has actually been very good, and the brown trout once again have been very kind to me so far this fall.  I will leave you with a parting shot of one of my more memorable fish.  The next few months I have all kinds of good stuff going on aside from shows and appearances, one of which is an entire face lift to this web page, something that I have been putting off for far too long; it's time!  Expect some more content here with a greater level of frequency; now go out there and enjoy some cool fall weather and those aggressive fish we all have grown to love.

2016 Speaking Engagements

In light of the forthcoming book release, I have begun work on a couple of new presentations.  One of which revolves around the subtitle of my book, "Tying flies for the toughest fish, and strategies for fishing them".  If you or someone from your group/club is interested in having me as a guest speaker, please feel free to contact me via email and we can arrange a date.  My appearances page has been updated rather regularly these days, and dates are beginning to disappear so please inquire sooner than later.  See you on the water or at the upcoming shows!
