I had full intention of putting up a new post with some of what I have been up to at the tying bench during January. With the new vise I received from Mrs. Santa Claus, I had been re-energized and looking forward to focusing on filling my Bluegill and Crappie fly boxes with some fishy looking patterns. I have worked on some Soft Hackles, some non-descript nymph patterns, some Stayner Ducktails, and some small versions of my Mohair/Bugger patterns just right for Mr. Bluegill. Heck, maybe even an unsuspecting Bass might give it a whack if I was lucky!
Ok, flies tied. Thought I would take some pictures of the flies and have them ready for my post. The flies, along with some fly tying chat would make for a good post. Ok, pictures taken!
Next, I needed to transfer them from my phone camera to my email. Thought everything had gone fine and was ready to fire up this post.
Wrong, my email has crashed and somewhere in cyberland is my pictures. Well, no post without the pictures. I will post them along with the other matter as soon as my email is up and running again. Ok, so I was distressed. But, only temporarily!
I came across this video posted by Hopper Juan over on his blog. Problem solved! This is one of the most dramatic and incredible videos I have seen on the net. Thanks, Juan, for sharing. Now, I will share. Besides, this video puts my blog writing post that I was going to post in shame!
