It has been a rather busy winter over here, sometimes it seems like I can barely keep up with all that is going on since the release of the book and the show season wisking me away to various locations.  If you've missed out on seeing me tie at some of the shows, or haven't been able to figure out what my book is about, this Wednesday at 9:00 PM Eastern standard time (7:00 PM Mountain time) I will once again be on Ask About Fly Fishing with the wonderful host, Roger Maves.  There will also be a drawing for some cool prizes so why not check it out!

If you recall, I was interviewed a couple years back about streamers and fishing them which you can sign up and listen to HERE.  This go around I will be answering a variety of questions revolving around the book and fishing for tough fish in general.  It bodes to be a good time and I hope many of you tune in.  If you've been on the fence about the book, this interview might shed some light on things and get you interested in what it is all about.  As I said, the last 6-8 weeks have been a bit of a blur and once things settle down again in late March, I will be sure to get some new content out there for your tying pleasure.

If you are looking for a winter get away, Scott and the boys down at the Compleat Angler are looking to fill their trip, and they have one spot left. Get on it before its gone!



Well this past weekend despite the storm that never was, the Marlborough Flyfishing Show went off without a hitch. Friday I had a solid group of attendees at my presentation, then Saturday the room was almost to capacity. Sunday, well, having the late showing and the Patriots playing, it was what it was but I still had a handful of attendees in the audience. For all of you who made the trip and stopped by, I thank you once again. On to a weekend of chaos, bring on Jersey.

I made some more great contacts in Marlborough, the most memorable of those was Michael and his sidekick Travis of Souplefly. If you've been to any of this years flyfishing shows you've probably seen their sick truck all tricked out and ready for the next adventure. Mike has some really neat products, one of which I sought out from the recommendations of a few of my partners at Flycraft. The Bug Visor was just what the doctor ordered; I can use this in my Flycraft and then transfer my bugs from the day to the visor of my truck. GENIUS! Check out their awesome shirts, hats and other nifty gadgets at their website: Souplefly

I also managed to add another frosty stein from Jeff Currier, I guess you could say I have a problem collecting these wonderful beverage containers. They are worth every penny, and I highly recommend scoping out Jeff at the shows early as he sells out quickly.

Lastly, here is my personal schedule for the weekend so all of you planning on stopping by please take note. I WILL have books with me at the Regal Booth every day, so you can grab one there, at my table or the Anglers Book Store this weekend. I suggest seeking me out early on those as well as I only have about 55 in tow, with a few already accounted for. So until this weekend, hope to see you all there!
