Well it's been a great year so far for rod sales. I've been very busy and getting busier. I shipped 10 rods last week and I'm going to ship 4 this week and I took 3 rod orders last night and forsee more this week. I really appreciate everyones orders. I pray everyone is happy with my work. I hope to open a market in the UK if Dave and I can get everything worked out. He's a true fly fishermen!! I'm going to take him up someday and go fishing in England. That would be sweet!!!!

Keep fishing and keep living!!!

Friday the 13th!!

Michelle and I dropped the girls off at Celia's and took off for Taneycomo. Well it was Friday the 13th and the corp was running water when they said they wouldn't be!!! So it was off to the Landing for some grub!! Famious Dave's was on my mind!!! GREAT LUNCH!!! After we were done we were walking out and I called the Dam. Zero units!!!!! We were off and running. I dropped Michelle off at Tanger and I was speeding to the dam. I haven't seen the river behind the dam for a long time! It has changed a lot. The whole thing seems shallower. I tied on a scud and caught a few fish and then changed to the Killer Worm! I was able to do some site fishing and did manage to catch about 15 fish. I lost two nice ones. Just didn't get the hook in them. The horns started blowing at 4:45 and here the water came! Time to leave and get my sweetheart and head home. All in all I had a great day! Good company, Good food and trout fishing!!! It doesn't get much better than that!!! Rods are still selling good! Get your order in!!

Wed trip to Roaring River

I had to run down to Tims on Wed to pick up a reel so I spent a couple hours on the River. I was very suprised to see how empty the river was of trout. It was just 4 day sence opening day and there wasn't hardly any trout in the river. I fished down below in the fly area and did manage to catch about 15 fish in a couple hours and enjoyed the catching as well as the weather. Man was it nice!!! My tag number was 2826. They said they turned loose 7200 fish and there had to be at least 3000 fish from Catch and Release season so there's a lot of fish missing some where!! It was nice to go fishing for a while and I enjoyed my company also. Michelle read a book and I think napped some also! We had a great outing!! I'm about to get caught up on my rod building. I've built 13 in the last 2 weeks!! I'm a tired boy!!

Taneycomo and Roaring River

My trip to Taney went great. I got down about 1:00. They were running one unit so waiding was really out. I got a place by #2 outlet and gave it a shot. I caught about 15 fish till 3:00. I caught one cutthrout that was about 18inches. Hard fighter and beautiful fish. They fight a ton better on Taney than Roaring River. I'm going to head down to Roaring River on Wed to get a reel from Tim at Tim's Fly shop. Great place to stop and get all the scoop!! I'll report after the trip. I'm going to fish a little. Michelle is going with me maybe I'll get some pictures to post. I'm selling rods like crazy right now. Great start to the year!!!!
