Chewee Worm and Chewee Scud

UV Chewee Skin is neat stuff. We have been using at the shop for a couple of weeks now. Here are a couple of videos using the new material.

November on the North Platte

Took a quick trip to the North Platte this past weekend. Amazing weather for this time of year. Not the greatest fishing but it was worth the drive. Fished up on the Miracle Mile for the first time. The Mile has some great runs and pools. Hooked a big brown on the spey rod in the first 5 minutes of fishing. The tippet broke and I might have muttered a few expletives.

Fished the next day just above Casper. We floated 8.8 miles of river. Fishing was tough. Most fish took streamers. Nymphing should have been productive, but we couldn't seem to find the right fly.

Here are a couple of photos from the trip--

Tying a Black Copper John

This is one of our favorite nymphs here at the shop. Check out the video and tie some of these puppies up--

Tying a Parachute Dry Fly

This a basic fly that many folks still struggle with. Hope this video helps...

Whoa what happened?

Where does the time go? I haven't posted in awhile and I have loads of excuses but I won't burden you with them all. It was a busy summer but now I am back at it. Next up... more tying videos.
