Tying up some flies for a trip next month. I need to order some more hooks and materials! I think I might go with a bulk hook assortment, instead of the expensive little packets. Any thoughts or experiences?

Wet wading with the Korkers K5 Bombers! These boots grip so well I think sometimes I'm a little too confident! But, I do love the feeling of cool water flowing past my feet!!

I don't know if it's the wood smoke, the cast iron or the fresh mountain air, but food always seems to taste better in camp!

Shaken, not stirred! --- I'm curious about dry fly floatant. What's your preferred method, style or brand?

The DrinkTank did a fantastic job of protecting my Tomoka Brewery Lunar Eclipse Stout while I was camping in the mountains!!

Tiny dry flies and bamboo fly rods sure are hard to beat!

Barrie Mann led the MCFF Fly Tyers group tonight in tying his Simple Bunny redfish fly. Very easy fly to tie, no reason not to keep a dozen on hand!! Mid-Coast Fly Fishers in New Smyrna Beach meetings are second Mondays, tying nights are third Mondays.

I like to lay out and double check everything before hitting the water.

I met some of the guys from Fair Flies at this year's IFTD Show and they were kind enough to send me some samples of their awesome Ethically Sourced fly brushes. I feel bad that it's taken me this long to try them, but I received the package just before we evacuated from Hurricane Irma and I haven't spent much time at the vice since then. I'm tying up some flies for my trip next week and finally get to play with the brushes. These things are incredible!! These are some of the thickest packed brushes I've used, there's a ton of dubbing, crystal, tinsel and even rubber legs in these things!! But, even with all that material they're still flexible and wrap really well. I can't wait to see their action in the water!! Check out their story, FairFlies are doing good things!!

Still more than half a week away, but I'm already counting down the hours until I'm back, knee-deep in cold water waving a stick in the air! Find me at the Orvis Down The Hatch show in Alpharetta, I'll have stickers with me!

Planning a trip to the mountains. Debating if I should revisit my old fishing holes or find some new ones. What would you do?
