        Amazing talent. You must have been drawing for a long time.

        Its great to see some have other hobbies etc. Other obsessions besides flyfishing ...

          Gentlemen, glad you like the drawing and thank you for saying so.

          Vaughn, I think you'll agree, it's been and continues to be, a long, and somewhat brutal winter in terms of getting out to fish. So I feel SOOO lucky to be able to spend time in the studio, where time goes by unnoticed, as it does while I'm fishing, fly tying, or designing gardens (my real job).

          Bill (secretly loving all the precipitation that should lead to a beautiful spring, summer and fall of fishing)

              Nice, Bill, one of my favorites that you've ever posted.

              Here's a 5 weight I built for my son. It was a christmas gift I finished in January, photographed on a February trip to the Metolius, and only got around to posting now. The reel is a Taylor, some new reel company my son found online. I made the threadwork, components, and handle to match the colors of the reel. The feather inlay is hard to see, but is pretty bright in the sunlight.

                    Another day falls on the roof
                    Rattling the skylight
                    Runs down tiles and gutters
                    In a rush to reach pavement and storm drain
                    On its way to river
                    Where I would have gone, fishing
                    If this day hadn't drained away

                    ----------------
                    Just a really long way of saying the rivers are blown out.
                    Anytime a man ain't fishin' he's fritterin' away his life.
                    --Rancid Crabtree

                    I do a lot of writing of prose and poetry...this one seemed appropriate at this time.

                    Old Friends



                    Say hello out of the blue
                    With this social
                    Network and out of
                    The hue of ether
                    So we connect
                    And dissect what
                    And where we have
                    Journeyed and become
                    Who and what
                    Experience varies
                    In this realm
                    Finding connections
                    Of what we become
                    Either happy or stayed
                    Or dwelling on tolerance
                    We can tell how distant
                    Friends and acquaintances
                    Have succumbed
                    Life delivers choices and
                    a sort of symbiotic
                    Dance of two
                    We all seem to
                    Find an autonomy of two
                    At least for a while
                    Until something happens
                    That makes us rue
                    The while of
                    Tapping fingers
                    Unspoken thoughts
                    Wishing we were as
                    Happy as a couple
                    As others conveyed
                    TIn typed thoughts
                    I bow to you
                    My long distant friend
                    If denial is your adjective
                    Or adverb or noun
                    I accept the pretend
                    All my old friends
                    Obviously live happily
                    Living in Camelot.

                          a long time friend of sorts and fly shop owner of I believe 35 years closed his doors in vancouver, WA this month. This was his retirement gift. Wishing mark Noble all the best..He sold me my first graphite fly rod...it was a St Croix 4 wt...and that was probably 30 some odd years ago.

                            Welcome back, Skip. Nice piece of work. And we always like subjects with sex around here -- as long as it's tastefully done.
