Practice on NFoW morning session

Here are a few fish from my morning session today.  Fishing was tough for about the first 45 min until the water warmed up a few degrees.  Then it was on like Donkey Kong!

Performance Flies

Check out Kevin Compton's Performance flies.  I get a good majority of my comp tying materials including Dohiku barbless comp hooks.  I was the first person to start fishing these hooks in the US and 99% of my flies are tied on these hooks.  Tell him I sent you. He will hook you up.  He is the only Distributor of some of these materials in America and is for sure the ONLY distributor of Dohiku hooks and Fly D&K products here.

NFoW 1-13-12

So I guess not being employed for the next two months has its benefits.  You see, I have been able to spend more time with my girlfriend (which is a definite plus), but I have also been able to spend more time on the water.  She lives about a 30min drive to either the NFoW and Mammoth spring in Arkansas so I get to pick where I want to fish everyday.  But it has also given me more time to prepare for upcoming comps and the upcoming guide season by prepping gear and flies.  Here are a few fish from my last trip on 1-13-12.  It was a bitterly cold day (16 deg F) and I was only expecting to move 2 or 3 fish, but i ended up with 7 in the 3 hr session I fished.  They definitely made it worthwhile.

Colorado new year

I just got back from a trip to Colorado last week and it was a great way to bring in the new year.  It looks as if I will be moving back sometime in march to start guiding again.  I am looking forward to making this move for the last time. So if any of you  are gonna be heading that way, let me know and maybe I will be able to take you fishing.
