Another awesome #vedavoovisenight is in the books. A light turnout but still loads of fun. We focused on #stripah flies but @mattfinfeathers took home the well traveled #carnivalfish for tying a classy and gaudy #pikefly. I arrived a bit early and was able to distract @barbless_bootstrapper while he finished up a @vedavoogear custom #saltwater #bigfly #vedavoogear #slingpack for @canalflyguy. #flytying #flyfishing #pizzaandbeer #goodtimes.
Finally landed the first 2019 fish. A nice healthy #rainbow thanks to @mass.wildlife. Perfect day on the local stream with air temps pushing 70°. #flyfishing #newengland #woollybugger #ffneflyswap #smokeonthewater
Val and I enjoyed the 60° weather on a couple trout streams today. Lots of bugs and spring life in the wood but the fish did not want to play. #flyfishing #newengland #theartofskunk
A multi feather #flatwing tied with some bench scraps in an attempt to clean up the tying space. Ended up with more mess than when I started. #flytying #stripahs
We are ready to get started for @wileysflies hosting of the @theflyfishingfilmtour #flyfishing #flytying #fishporn
Come out tonight for the @theflyfishingfilmtour at the @lakeplacidarts hosted by @wileysflies!! Tickets are available online, at the shop in Ray Brook and at the door. There are some fantastic door, raffle and auction items including these original trout prints by an #adk artist @monster.amelia #f3t #flyfishingfilmtour #flyfishing #flytying #localbeer #prizes #supportyourlocal
Val @valwormell and I visited the @flyfishmuseum yesterday. A very impressive collection and history of the sport we love. #flyfishing #flytying #history #maryorvismarbury #leewulff #carriestevens #leftykreh #charlesorvis
Took a walk to the local pond to sort out a couple of integrated two handed lines and work on casting. Filled the stripping basket on the way out. #nofishfoundandnonewereexpected #waterisstilltoocold #vedavootorchbearers #vedavoogear #theartofskunk #twohandedcasting #flyfishing #trashpatrol #flyfishingnewengland #beastfleye #classicbassfly #polka
The #simpleslayer - one of my most productive #stripah patterns. Tie these all white, olive over white, chartreuse over white and even blue over white. Also try different estaz colors. #flytying pattern credit to @brentonr
Replenishing the #clousers for the upcoming #stripah season. #flytying #whatsinyourbox
Another fun #vedavoovisenight is in the books. Good times with some excellent tiers sharing tips and swapping fish stories. Thanks to @mattfinfeathers for showing me how to tie the Polka bass fly! As always, thanks to Scott @vedavoogear for hosting!! .

The @vedavoogear #benchbasin is always at the ready when #flytying fresh or saltwater flies. A 1/2 dozen sz 8 #slumpbusters ready for the local trout and bass. #shamelessplug
