hey Jeff, looks like you have a good start.....did you catch any on your Father/Son trip with flies you tied....what an incredible feeling!

I know my head was spinning trying to figure out how to do certain flies. As for the LRO tying classes, I am a firm beleiver in the skills of Walter Babb and Brian Courtney (the instructers). After taking the final class, I was even able to spin deer hair and shape it for the Speck....I believe the classes are primarily winter classes though....

Yes, we actually had a double header. We caught the first fish on one of my flies and the first fish on a custom fly rod I had built for my son's birthday. His birthday isn't until the end of the month, but I couldn't go fishing with him in the mountains knowing there was a new rod sitting at home so I gave it to him early.

Here's a link to a thread with photos of the first fish and the rod and mys son using it.

Default Nice work Jeff!

Just learning to walk here...but aching to FLY.

Tried my first parachute the other day...pretty brutal...actually not pretty at all!

Great pictures I think
