Been a while, One fly contest

  Hello everyone. It has been some time since my last post, and for that I apologize. I just have been super busy the last couple months. I am still tying and getting out whenever the chance arises.  Over the weekend I competed in the New Jersey fly fisherman of the year contest held at the Raritan inn Club water. Its is a beautiful stretch of the South Branch of the Raritan river.   For more info on the event check out Shannons fly shop  site.   There is also a video there of the stream reconstruction that was done.
  The event is a state council T.U. event with sponsors such as Regal, shannons fly shop, g loomis and many others. I represented my chapter Ridge and Valley .   I decided to fish the high test hares ear, with a chartreuse flash.  The fishing was tough for everyone, and I only manged a small wild rainbow.  Needless to say i didnt win with that fish lol. But it was still a great time on the water.   The top producing flies were, The infamous pink worm, A cray fish pattern, and a dubbing loop egg.
   The win went to Angelo Conti, who happened to win last year as well. Great job Angelo!

Dont Forget, The International Fly Tying Symposium this weekend!!!!

I will be there tying, so stop by and say hello!
