New Passion

Well, I have not been out fishing since my last post, but I have found a new passion. I am going to learn how to tie jigs for fishing. I went to Sportsman’s and bought a fly tying kit and have been “studying up” on what to tie and how to tie. The wife 'O my life bought me a beginner’s book at B & N and it has a lot of the basics in it, very helpful. My wife is so sweet and very supportive of all my fishing stuff.

Since I have the vice and tools I thought I would go and get the material to try out this whole tying thing...I was so excited I picked one of the Bright Butt Buggers from Hillbilly Geek's posts on and went down to Sportsman's.AAAARRRRGGGGHHHH...they do not have all the right stuff. Oh, well I will improvise and make up my own color scheme. They do not have Kevlar thread in black, they do not have 6/0 thread in black, I got everything else and the worker-bee told me I could go across the parking lot and get some black thread at Joann fabrics. So off I go to get my thread. They have never heard of Kevlar thread, ok, ok, how about your strongest synthetic thread in black. Great I have I am really getting psyched. When I get home the thread spool will not fit in the bobbin holder I got in my kit...poop. I did hear about a fly shop over by Costco here in Vancouver...I will try there....the adventure continues

one fish at a time...
