You can find me hanging around the tier’s row at the west coast fly fishing shows and expos in the early spring. Bass fishing with a fly in the California Delta on hot summer nights for a double digit fish is the current goal.

This fly is great for the skinny damsel nymphs found in lakes in the Sierra Nevadas.
