A Heck of a Pattern

I’ve had the pleasure of having Mike Heck guide me and some buddies on central PA waters. I was reading through my copy of his Spring Creek Strategies book and came across one of his patterns – that Drifter Pete McCartney says slays ’em! (He tends to get pumped up.) So I thought I’d give…

Tying Another On

Another Fly Fishing Show in the books for the Original Drifter and I. And this was probably the best trip we’ve had going there. We left Friday morning at 6 am and listened to Orvis podcasts along the way. We stopped at the Pennsylvania Fly Fishing Museum – which should be on any fly fisherperson’s…

Fish On (My Mind)

I’ve been really busy with client work, so the frequency of my posts has gone down – so I apologize. However, I have a lot of new content topics that I’m planning to share when I get some time. So keep stopping back to read my ramblings. In the meantime, and since trout have been…

Throwback Thursday

Throw Back Thursday

The Original Drifter

Today is my Dad’s birthday. Yes, the original Drifter – who, fortunate for me, introduced me to this wonderful past time of fly fishing a long time ago. Around 36 years ago, give or take a few years. And I’ve been able to share many days on the stream with him, as well as time…
