Yeah...I've been tying...

With the all the rain we have had in central Ohio over the last few weeks the fishable water has been slim to none. While I would have liked to have been out chasing fish it was a good chance for me to stick around the house, without finned distraction, and knock out the backlog of orders I had on the books. To that end I kncoked out quite a few flies this weekend to hit the mail in the morning.

I also had the opportunity to touch base with '1% For the Planet' and confirm my membership for the next year; ACF is member #2171. With the state of the environment in today's world I have no doubt that every little bit of monetary support and awareness helps. Though Anglers Choice Flies is a comparatively small company I am proud to be able to continue to pledge the little I can to environmental causes.

I have seen this shot in a few other locations over the last week, but Adam Peterson's Au Sable beast from last Wednesday is just too nice not to be posted one more time. Another victim of the ACF Cotton Candy, I understand that this big male was boga'd at just over seven pounds before being released back to the flow.

After seeing a compilation shot of some browns on Rebekka Redd's site I got a chance over this weekend to play with a few of my Ohio early season shots from the last month. It was fun going back through some of the pictures and realizing how vividly I recall each fish and fight.

The next few nights will be spent knocking out a few random flies and getting everything packed up. I am headed out early Wednesday with Mrs ACF to New Smyrna Beach; not a fishing trip but I will no doubt wet a line while I am down there. If I get a chance I will get a parting blog posted, othwerwise...catch you in a week!
