  1. Sad news indeed. I still keep a copy of the Kankakee River Map he and his son produced. it is still a great resource. Sorry to see such a great ambassador leave us.
  2. That was very entertaining! And some very sage advice to which i will ignore🤪
  3. Well done! The Clouser is a great intro to tying. Less is more with this pattern for sure. Keep it up!
  4. Those look NICE! It looks as if we have a potential ISA Zoom Tie Lead.😎
  5. Thank you for choosing me to lead this inaugural event. I missed having the open banter that all of enjoy by sitting in person. Yet this is the next best thing. I hope I provided some good tricks for tying. I love to tie easy and quick patterns, then if they snag up no worries. Van, you're comment on weighting the front was interesting, I will apply it to a batch. I am intrigued! Rich the eyes don't last long without some reinforcement. I haven't found a great application yet. I've tried thin CCG but it takes away from the action a bit. Again, thank you to all who helped put this tog
  6. Hi Jim, To make a long story short I met the Friar, Jonathan on the Fox this fall. He is a Franciscan Friar so poverty is one of his vows. He had 3 flies and lost two of them. He uses an 8 Weight. I'm in Batavia, so I am more than willing to pickup what ever you feel like donating to his cause. Just trying to get him a bit of an arsenal for his kindness, knowledge and peace he presented to me . My Number is 708-710-9160 I appreciate your help in this matter if you would like to fish the fox this season let me know. I will show you everything I know in about fifteen minutes. LOL

  8. It doesn't take long to get messed up, that's for sure!😁
  9. My station is very messy at the moment, I have been tying randomly through out this fishing season. This is my basement. It is a music studio, tying station, office man cave. I like seeing what you all have going on. Rich you have to post a pic of your station, I am intrigued!
  10. The weather was perfect, warm partly cloudy days followed by calm cool evenings. The bite was slow but steady, The fish large and angry! It is every angler’s challenge to solve the mysteries of weather and water to find fish that will eat our offerings to allow us moments of sheer joy. The highlights of this four day ISA adventure includes; whopper popper bites yielding many 18’s and 19’s, campfires and camaraderie, and fish stories galore! I traveled up with Bart. He was kind enough to haul my Nucanoe even though he had his Towee boat trailered. We fished together in the Towee, a
