Cutthroat Afternoon | A Fly Fishing Short Film

Just a quick video…but summer memories in January are always welcome. Went fishing with my son Reed and I got to spend a bit of time with the rod too. Enjoy the green and dream of June! Be sure to like, share and comment! Tight lines!

More details on my guiding service coming in the next few months!

Fly Fishing: Winter Snow Day by Mid-Life Flysis

Fly Fishing: Winter Snow Day

It wasn’t winter yet but it looked and felt like it! A very pretty but cold setting for a day of fishing. Trying to be the optimist was tough through a fishless morning but it all came together after lunch!

The beer for today was called Snow Day Stout by Troubled Monk Brewing Company, awesome stout with hints of Chocolate and Peppermint.

Fly Tying: “Quillimodo” The Quill Body Yellow Humpy by Mid-Life Flysis

Fly Tying: “Quillimodo” The Quill Body Yellow Humpy

View on YouTube
So I was going through my old video footage and I forgot all about this one! I meant to post this in the early fall but it slipped my mind so here is a little bonus tying video. Makes me miss my tying gear even more (hopefully in the new house and unpacked by late February!)

Here it is:
The Quill Body Humpy “Quillimodo”
Tail: moose body
Thread: UTC 70 yellow
Body: Stripped peacock quill and 2mm sheet foam
Wings: Bleached Elk Hair
Hackle: Furnace and Grizzly
UV Resin.

Great fly to take advantage of the look of a quill body fly with the buoyancy and visibility of the classic Humpy. I hope this helps all my tying friends get through the cold dark of January!
