    Default Missing Flyman

    Has anyone heard from Flyman? I need a laugh. I really enjoyed watching Flyman, Walter Babb, and others tie at Troutfest. It is always a treat. I really wanted to watch Ray Ball as well. I hope Ray will be able to tie next year. He is a pleasure to watch and listen to.

    Thanks to everyone who planned, volunteered, participated, and attended an outstanding event. Yes, that even includes you Byron.

    Good drifts,

    I don't live just to fish, but I want to fish just as long as I live.

    He sat down while I was tying at Troutfest and we talked for a while. He said he's doing well. If you're ever in a bad mood, it would be in your best interest to talk to Flyman. He'll make you laugh until your lungs burst. Heck of an angler, tyer, and person.

    He mentioned that he was going to be camping with his son and some of his buddies for a couple days. If he isn't camping he is likely in jail.

    Default Jail?

    Quite possible. I do remember now that he said something about fishing for a couple of weeks. I hope he manages to stay out of jail, but if not, those other prisoners will surely be laughing.

    I camped and fished with him a few days last week. He's back home now, so I would think he might show up here eventually and see your thread.

    I'm back and still kicking. It took me a couple of days to get over all the fun I had at Troutfest, and the camping and fishing afterwards. It's always nice to meet some new friends, and spend some time with old ones.
