German Pancakes.... Money $

On this very cold winter morning, after shoveling the driveway. I made some German pancakes just like my Grandma Lehner made for me 50+ years ago.... Yeah, they taste as good as they look, just ask my wife.... Boy that breakfast sure brings back memories.

Davey McPhail Sawyer Style PT nymphs

Hi friends, this is a Frank Sawyer fly pattern variation that I've fished for many years. Davey McPhail has an excellent video showing the tying steps here: I tie them the same way Davey does in pheasant-tail to imitate mayfly nymphs but also in turkey-tail to imitate the small early stone fly nymphs here in NY. They are fast and easy to tie using just XS or SM Uni-copper wire along with your choice of tail material and a nymph #14 1XL hook.

Merry Christmas!

Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! John 1:29

For nothing will be impossible with God. Luke 1:37
In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. John 1:4-5
The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through him… John 1:9-10

Bamboo restore - refurbish

A friend gave me two old fly rods awhile ago. Today, I dug them out and got to work on them. One is a  Horrocks and Ibbotson Featherlight and the other is a Kingfisher Fly Rod both 8 1/2' long. Both will be stripped and rebuilt as "user" fly rods.... The good news is all the bamboo seems to be in fairly good shape. I am starting with the H and I.

Turkey Soup.... Anyone?

Nothing like good old turkey soup after Thanksgiving.... It's a task I enjoy each year.
