Loved by some and obnoxious to many. They are ugly sweaters.
These wool gems were rocked by my Dad on the slopes of Colorado almost 40 years ago🎿⛷
He’s been enjoying seeing them out and about again 😊🎣🐟
This past spring I sat down and became serious with learning more about this art and craft. The Blood Knot symbolizes to me a finer understanding and level of care for the fly fishing art form. A stronger connection between two lines; a link between you and the animal on the other end. It takes a slightly elevated level of care and detail. Remembering a beloved art professor who has left us too soon. You’ll be missed, Billy Mayer 📷thebombdotcom, @katelyn__barry
Here’s another look at one of my favorite catches from last spring. This guy was very picky on a little stream I was hiking past. I threw top water fly after top water and no takes . So, I put a dropper on it and that sealed the deal. He put up a great fight and with a light tippet all the more exciting. 📷/street cred goes to @katelyn__barry
The last fish of October and my first crappie in North Carolina. I decided to throw the Kreelex I tied, just to see what happened. Luckily the water was a clear tea color and I was able to see the subtle take. After a couple misses on the swing, I was able to set the hook. Oh and Lola is back! Little hiatus and now she’s feeling better 🐕 oh and Happy Birthday, Lola 🎂!
Time for spoOoOky bass! 🕷🎃 I caught this black bass in a super slow stagnant part of the river. There was hardly a current and the water was skinny. I dropped my fly down as I was approaching, not expecting a rise, and was pleased when it slashed my offering.
