Color from White

Went up AF canyon fishing. I never expect big fish up there, but I do expect colorful fish. That's what I got. It snowed most of the day.

Lunch Break

Cort an I went fishing for lunch. The water had risen since last week and was a little dirty. I caught one fish after he left. These are a few shots from the outing.

Steaming and Bending

Steaming the strips. Takes about thirty minutes, then they bend right around the form.

Bending the strips around the form.

Looks like a fire.

Just wanted to get out and play with the new camera, and of course fish. I can't wait til I catch a decent fish, to take some shots of it. Did catch one on a dry today. That will get the blood flowin' to keep you warm.

Net Building

I am wanting to take photos of the process of building a net. The first steps in building a net is deciding what wood combo you want in your net. I am working with Walnut, Maple and Mahogany. Next I mill some 1/8 inch strips on the bandsaw. Steaming pics will be coming soon. The last pic is me and Lincoln. Since Lincoln got my old fly tying room as his bedroom, I have been put here, in the closet. He always points at the door and smiles as we sit and I show him the tools and materials.
