Buck Tail Love.

Prime northern VT bucktails. Alot of work but the end result pays in big time. Brian and I have a surplus of good tails boraxed and drying as well as some that just took the scrub and wash plunge. I use the wood stove in the kitchen to my favor to dry the buggers. I have a process which seems to work so far. From the skinning right through to the final scrub I think we got some good tying tails. White as ever and looking good!!

P.A.'s 2 thumbs up!!!

This time of year demands warmer clothing. Yup 30's and 40's with 50 degree days being a heat wave. It is also the best time to be out before ice up and catch that monster pike or musky on the fly. Well I love being out side anyway wether they are hittin flies or not. My one favorite piece of gear???? Carharrt heavy duty flannel. well priced, comfy as hell and looks pretty snazzy as well. Here's a link to the carharrt site. Jerimiah Johnson would kill to get his hands on these shirts. Tight Lines!

Musky tossers............

Some things you just have to work at. Musky fly fishing is one of them. You may be lucky to nab one on a 1st outing but don't think for one second it's gonna happen again. Atleast it don't happen for me. I love the challange the time of year and every hard thing that comes along with it. When it all comes together ..well sweet victory! I had 2 hook ups and lost both and you know what....victory...I love being around those fish. Big flies ...good friends and good food....nothin better.
