Recipe updated

Size 12 nymph hook (I use Mustad 7671)
Size 6 black thread
Gold/brass bead chain eyes
Zonker style Squirrel skin
Your favorite head cement

Tie in the eyes and cover the shank with thread.

just showing the natural lay of the hair fibers

Tie in at the bend of the hook.  I leave about a hook length out.   Others like the tail end shorter or longer.

Palmer the skin tightly and keep the layers from bunching up.

When you get to the eyes, make an "X" across them.  This pictures shows the first pass.

Make a couple of half hitches.

Add your head cement, let dry, and go fishing.

That is a great report!  You should drag along a cameraman.

I'll make sure to mention it at the next AAA
(Armchair Anglers Association) meeting.   ;D

An old man and his wife were sitting in their living room, quietly enjoying each other’s company, he reading, she doing needle work, when she looks over to him and asks, “Why did you marry me?  You knew you would have to leave your home up North, find a new job down here, find a new place to live, and start your life over.”  He looked over to her and replied, laughing, “I was stupid.”  She settled back with a contented smile and said nothing more. 

Days went by, maybe even weeks.  The old man still couldn’t understand why she was content with that answer.  He asked her, finally.  “Why did you take such a simple and silly answer and leave it at that?  Shouldn’t I have said that I did it all because I fell in love with you?”  She replied.  “But dear, people fall out of love all the time.  I have never heard of anybody falling out of stupid.”

Mike is always willing to share what he knows, and his skills as an instructor are without peer.

He has supported the club, Boy Scouts, Vets, and numerous others during the short time I've known him.

We are lucky to have him.

Carpman once again is successful!

Almost 30 fish landed.  Howling wind was a challenge, but we caught fish anyway.

Probably a good idea.  The canoe is only 16' long.

Going to Church
One Sunday morning, a mother went in to wake her son  and tell him it was time to get ready for church, to which he replied, "I'm not going."
"Why not?" she  asked.
I'll  give you two good reasons," he said. "(1), they don't like me, and (2), I don't like them."
His mother replied, "I'll give YOU two good reasons  why you SHOULD go to church.  (1) You're 59 years old, and (2) you're the  pastor!"
The  Picnic
A  Jewish Rabbi and a Catholic Priest met at the  town's annual 4th of July picnic. Old friends, they began their usual banter.
"This baked ham is really delicious," the priest teased the rabbi. "You really ought to try it. I know it's against your religion, but I can't understand why such a wonderful food should be forbidden! You don't know what you're missing.  You just haven't lived until you've tried Mrs. Hall's prized Virginia Baked Ham. Tell me,  Rabbi, when are you going to break down and try  it?"
The rabbi looked at the priest with a big grin,and said, "At your wedding."
The Usher
An elderly woman walked into the local country church. The friendly usher greeted her at the  door and helped her up the flight of steps, "Where would you like to sit?" he asked politely.
"The front row please," she  answered.
"You really don't want to do that," the usher said  "The pastor is really boring."
"Do you happen to know who I am?" the woman inquired.
"No." he said.
"I'm the pastor's mother," she replied indignantly.
"Do you know who I am?" he asked.
"No." she said.
"Good," he answered.
Show and Tell

A  kindergarten teacher gave her class a "show and tell" assignment.  Each student was instructed to bring in an object to share with the class that represented their religion.

The first student got up in front of the class and said, "My name is Benjamin and I am Jewish and this is a Star of David."
The second student got up in front of the class and said, "My name is Mary. I'm a Catholic and this is a Rosary."
The third student got in up front of the class and said, "My name is Tommy. I am Baptist, and  this is a casserole."
The Best Way  To Pray

A  priest, a minister and a guru sat discussing the  best positions for prayer, while a telephone repairman worked nearby.
"Kneeling  is definitely the best way to pray," the priest  said.
"No," said the minister. "I get the best results  standing with my hands outstretched to Heaven."
"You're both wrong," the guru said. "The most effective  prayer position is lying down on the floor."
The repairman could contain himself no longer. "Hey,  fellas," he interrupted. "The best prayin' I ever did was when I was hangin' upside down from a telephone  pole."
Goat for Dinner
The young couple invited their elderly pastor for Sunday dinner. While they were in the kitchen preparing the meal, the minister asked their son what they were having. "Goat," the little boy  replied.
"Goat?"  replied the startled man of the cloth, "Are you sure about that?"
"Yep," said the youngster. "I heard Dad say to Mom,  'Today is just as good as any to have the old goat for dinner."

LOL / Cold in Minnesota
« on: December 02, 2011, 05:28:22 PM »
I just got off the phone with a friend in Minnesota.

He said that since early this morning the snow has been nearly waist high and is still falling.

The temperature is dropping below zeroand the north wind is increasing.

His wife has done nothing but look through the kitchen window all day.

He says that if it gets much worse,                               

 he may have to let her in.

About You / Puck

Hey,  I'm Puck.

And I'm a fish-a-holic    -  And the crowd cheers

My fly-fishing mentor, Tony, owns Fly Tyers Vice, in Pittsburgh, Pa.  That is where I learned to actually catch fish with a fly rod (1992).  I'd been scaring the scales off of them for years before that.  He was able to talk me into taking a fly tying class, where I learned the basics, and the rest is history.  I'm still hooked.

I fish for anything and everything, in just about any water.  I actually had a German fishing liscense for my last 3 years there (1995-1998) to be able to indulge.  Trout and northern pike were my targets of choice.

More later.

Larry took much better pictures than I did.

I'll see what I can find when I get home.

Still working on details.
