Re: Grouse and Grouse

I've got 4 Grouse that have found my bird feeders this winter. It's the one bird the damn Blue Jays can't seem to bully. A hoard of 20 Turkeys showed up yesterday as well. They're back right now, scratching and looking for more sunflower seeds. I'd love to see them stay all winter but I'll go bankru...

Re: Tinsels and other Bling...

I can never seem to come to a satisfying consensus with myself when it comes to bling. I'll go through periods of blinging everything under heaven and then I'll have yet another epiphany and want to throw all of the shiny stuff away.

Re: Grouse and Flash

The 'extensive' reply is appreciated; I remember reading about the spill and being horrified. We have some of the same issues here what with agricultural runoff and large timber companies cutting too close to watersheds, fines be damned.

Re: Grouse and Flash

Nice to see such a beautiful fish rising from the Sacramento. Baz, are there any lingering issues from the Dunsmuir spill still affecting the waters there? Alan Petrucci (SSR) ties a wonderful little Grouse and Flash that I've stolen and it works wonderfully on the small stream brookies up here. Its...

Very nice, Norm. Happens to be a new favorite of mine for the Brookies here in Maine.
Do tell, Ron. Specifics, man, specifics. I may have to try it next season up on the Fish.

Re: Bradshaw's Fancy

I love it when history makes a visit and adds context to a well dressed fly. Nicely tied, Sir.
