Blessed to Have Awesome Blogging Buddies


Alan at Small Stream Reflection sent me a care package today in the form of some awesome streamers, dries, and wet flies. Thanks to Alan my fly box is back to normal now and ready for some cold water fishing on the tailrace. I haven’t been able to get back on the water due to constant generation and not having fly fishing equipment to fish with.

Well as of today I can report that I have replaced most all the fly rods with the exception of one 7 ½ ft. Redington and one Gloomis fly reel. In fact I found most of the reels and rods cheaper than the original price. Even with that accomplishment, it stills leaves me with a sick feeling knowing the value of what I lost. I do have insurance now on all my fishing equipment and hopefully I will never have to use it. Thanks to Alan and the rest of my blogging buddies for all the positive comments and helping me restock my fly boxes. Now its time to hit the water.!!
Alan does an exceptional job at the tying bench. I can’t wait to get on the water and land some nice rainbows using these flies. I am especially anxious to use those streamers. The trout here seldom see these streamers patterns, so I am expecting some savage takes. I hope to have a report soon.

Bill, really happy to hear that you are on the rebound with your fishing equipment and that your fly boxes are looking up thanks to Alan, and, Kevin etc. etc.

Really look forward to seeing you get back on the water and catch a fish.

Bill,
I'm anxious to see how the white marabou streamer fishes in your waters.

I feel all the streamers will have an impact, very little streamer fishing occurs here. Thanks for the comment

Hi Bill, well I woke up to find out that you suffered a loss of your gear. Sorry to hear that but glad to hear your buddies came through. Once I get back on my feet, so to speak, I'll be making a summer contribution. Thanks for helping Pam pass the word on my recent surgery.

It will take me a while to get over losing that amount of fly fishing equipment. Thanks for the offer of flies, but I have got my fly box full now. How about those Broncos, Peyton was at his usual best. Glad you are doing better--thanks for the comment
