Thanks to today’s “Wet Flies for the Farmington River” class at UpCountry Sportfishing

We had a sellout crowd at today’s class — thanks to everyone for taking the time to come. Really good group, very enthusiastic, and we spent as much time talking about wet fly tying, theory, and fishing as we did tying. I had fun, too — so much that I couldn’t believe it when I looked at my phone and it was 1:40pm. Like a soccer match, we added some extra time, and in the spirit of one more cast, squeezed in another tie. I’d also like to take this opportunity to formally warn the trout in the Farmington River: there are now five more anglers who are going to be fooling you on regular basis. For your own safety, stay within the TMA.

Busy, busy, busy. Time flies — did I really just write that? — when you’re tying soft-hackles.


Tying and talking. Do not try this at home.


Just a reminder that I will be giving a presentation, “Wet Flies 101,”  Tuesday night, 2/11, at the CVTU meeting at 7pm at Armando’s Restaurant, 47 Stony Hill Rd, Bethel, CT. Hope to see some of you locals there!
