Fly Fishing from Scratch
“It’s just a small brown”

I had little to no expectations of landing a fish. This was more of a practice run of sorts for me. I remember standing in the river while the water rushed by me in my w

We were only three days from the last time I was in NY and the water levels were dropping and clearing in the creeks so the odd were slim. The up side was the main river might be fishable finally.

Genesis: 3 foot dragonflies and other hard to cast flies So, you want to learn bugs? A good place to start is at the beginning. Lets start at a place in time before there were fish, much less fishermen. In this time there weren’t even dinosaurs. It was the Age of Insects. In this age, hawk-sized dragonflies chased mayflies sporting wings taller than puppies. Cave children cowered in their shadows. This was a long time ago. . .two to three hundred million years ago to be ex
