For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form
Hi Alan Thanks for posting those pictures of everyone's fine work, I love the Grandfather's Pride fly........Take care and stay safe Alistair
AlistairThanksAlistair I'm sure Dean is also very happy with that fly.
Great photos! It was nice to see a photo of a wild brookie on a day when I could not find one in the wild (although I only had a brief chance to try).
ShawnThanksShawn it was windy yesterday. We were out scouting a couple of state forests and it was tough. I can't imagine how it was to fish.
Mike Stephens has some accolades for his work at the Classic Rod Forum. Great “family album” pictures and ties, DeanF’s grandaughter may have her own blog someday!Kevin
Ned ZeppelinThanksKevin I have seen and cast a few of Mikes builds and restorations. Covid along with other issues has kept fishing together to a no. Hopefully that will change. She sure looks enthusiastic.
Never too soon to get the little ones acclimated to the creeks. They are the future of fishing.
Mark KautzThanksMark for every child that takes up the outdoors we have won. Most will never forget what is life enhancing as nature.
Grandpa Dean has good taste in vises; HMH -TRV. Great photo of him and his granddaughter tying. Wonderful stuff, Alan.
mikeThanksMike fly tyers find something that works and never leave it. Regal Medallion...yes that is a photo that will be admired over the years.
I like that soft hackle streamer. =)
The River DamselThanksEmily they work well and are easy to tie. When wet and moved through the stream they look just like a sculpin.
AlanLooks like Matt gots a fishing buddy for life----thanks for sharing
Bill TrussellThanksBill she loves fishing with dad.
Alan,Again, I am loving this type of thread where you showcase your many friends thru photos! It is so good to put faces to the names of the folks we have become familiar with thru your blog! Great job Alan and all who are shown and showcased! Please make this a regular feature here on SSR's!Dougsden
DougsdenThanksDoug I plan to feature other photos in future posts. I believe i have one of you that was given to me by Ray Tucker.
is there anything more beautiful and classy as a fine cane rod/reel.I think not. thanks for sharing.
John M PavaoThanksJohn the cane rod is the peak. I have always wanted one and three years ago I was gifted one. I love mine.
Alan thanks for sharing all of these wonderful photos!
Dean FThanksDean there are many more to come.
Mike S's bamboo rod pictured above is a delicious looking work of art! Again, I am really liking this "format" as it were where you feature different folks...even the littlest of Small Stream Anglers! Such a cutie!
