Here I am

I have not disappeared (like this brown is about to).


I’ve been on a little vacation. Even starving writers occasionally get to go somewhere warm and breezy in the middle of winter. Yes, I managed a little fishing. Yes, there will be a story. But for now, these three items:

On Wednesday night, February 26, I will be presenting “Wet Flies 101” to the Narragansett Trout Unlimited chapter. You can get directions from their website (

Saturday, March 1, I will be at The Compleat Angler in Darien, CT, from 10am-2pm to present a tying demo, “Flies for Small Streams.” I will be covering wets, nymphs, dries, and streamers, along with tactics and presentations. Directions at

Last but not least, I just finished an article for American Angler on matching the hatch with wet flies. It will be in the spring trout issue.

As always, thanks for reading.

    Hope your warm and sunny destination included that catch you posted. I’m in Sanibel Fla where it’s been in the low 80’s. Have you or anyone else substituted green angora for ginger for the caddis pattern?

    Hi John,

    Nope, there were no trout anywhere near where I was. That shot is from last July on the Farmington.

    I can’t speak for others, but I sure have used green Angora. The fish like that, too.
