It has been awhile since I last posted, mainly because I was in D.C for a week, and have been extremely busy with commercial tying. But, I did manage to get out and fish quite a bit recently. I chased smallies from the bellyboat, largemouth on shad patterns, and most recently, carp on the flats of my local lake. All of the above events were exciting, but I just can't seem to get enough of carp fishing on the fly. It really is an amazing experience, and it will truly challenge you as an angler.

|Nice grassie...these things fight like a saltwater fish!|

Overall, it has been an eventful couple of weeks, and I look forward to hearing how fishing was if any of you got the chance to hit the water. I am headed to the Taylor River, Antero Reservoir, and Delaney Buttes in a little over a week, so I will be sure to let you know how things went.
Other than that, I am hoping to get a tying tutorial up sometime before my trip, but I want to know what you guys would like to see. There are so many tutorials already out there, but if there is something specific that you would like to see, please don't hesitate to let me know. It is greatly appreciated!
