First off YEAH!! I reached 200 followers yesterday and yes it is only a number but cool to see that many people are interested in my blog.
As many of you know I have been missing in action for the last little while and have not done a blog shout out for awhile. I have found some great blogs recently and wanted to share them with you. Again in no real order.
Driftless Creations Fly Tying -- This is trout magees fly tying blog. If you have not seen any of his blogs you have been missing out. He is a great tier and an amazing person! He is an inspiration for any father as well. Here are is other 2 blog if you are interested.
Catching Shadows Blog -- Rich is a great blogger! He just announced he will no longer be guiding but still blogging. I was very interested in his kitchen remodel and his flies are amazing! He does do videos as well which are very informative. Give him a look over.
Fly Tying Team -- This blog is in German but very informative. He posts videos of other tiers and his pictures of flies are AMAZING!
I know I have blog shouted Erin's blog before but I have a lot of new followers that might have never seen it.
Mysteries Internal blog is from a aspiring tier and an AMAZING writer. Every fly fisherman should be following her blog.
Another side note is I finally ordered a new Scott rod the other day and I am stocked to get it in. http://cofisher.blogspot.com/ at Windknots & Tangled Lines blog gave me an Orvis rod last spring and told me if I ever get another rod to donate it to another fisherman. I meet this 13 year old kid at a fly tying class and has tied for almost a year but never been fly fishing. His parents lost their job and their house about 4 months ago and his birthday is next week. His family is down and out and because of this he has missed out on a lot of stuff. I have given him materials and such to keep his head up and tying to keep his mind off of life. I am going to give him that rod that Howard gave me and also my Orvis Rocky Mountain reel with a sinking line and take him fishing next weekend. I wanted to thank Howard for helping me out and giving me the chance to do the same!
Finally -- What is coming up? I have a Cicada pattern that I am working on and should post a step by step tomorrow and a pretty sweet hopper pattern but I need to wait for my material to come in so hopefully I can do a step by step on Monday or Tuesday on that one.
Again Thanks everyone for following and I promise to be more active than I have been lately
