A table we have set aside for the beautiful hand made, from the heart gifts of our grandchildren.

Jeanette and I are blessed with two beautiful grandchildren. Morgan and Ethan are very special kids who love to be creative and to give those creations to Nana and Papa.
Early on Nana made it clear that whatever they made and gave to us as a gift had so much more meaning than any store bought gift. This post doesn't have much to do with fly fishing in terms of tackle and gear, but it does have something to do with whats beautiful and precious. Come to think of it so can fly fishing.

A salamander made and painted by Morgan


  1. that salamander is great! You are for sure blessed!

  2. I like the new design and the leave you with two quotes:

    "One hundred years from now, it will not matter what kind of car I drove, of house I lived in, how much money I had in the bank, nor what my clothes looked like. But the world may be a little better because I was important in the life of a child." unknown

    "No man stands taller then when he stoops to help a child." Abe Lincoln

  3. Dustin's Fly Box,
    Thanks. I tell myself that every day.

    Thanks. I've never heard of these quotes, thank you for posting them. They are so very true.

  4. Grandchildren made. Those are the best.


  5. Speaking as someone who has been a father for 5 years now and hoping someday to have grandchildren of my own, you have hit the nail on the head. There is nothing better than children, including fly fishing. You are blessed to have them.

    PS Did you receive the e-mail I sent you?

  6. Shoreman,

    I appreciate your comments.
    I did not receive your email.
    My address should be in my profile.

  7. Clearly there is a deep artistic gene pool that runs in the family!
