Posted August 25, 2010:
The 2010 issue of Hatches Magazine has just been released and I have been informed by a close friend and tying student through http://www.classicflytying.com that the issue has been shipped and has already been received by some subscribers. I have a feature wet fly article in this issue titled Traditional Wet Flies – Notes on Materials, Procedures, Proportions, and Techniques. It is 4800 words with lots of photos. I was very pleased to be able to write this piece for Hatches.
Like most tyers I am still learning about fly tying. This sometimes occurs when I am tying flies alone; the result of a simple idea or creative thought. At times an idea arises when I am far from my tying vise. Other fly tiers sharing their knowledge allow us to learn and progress in our fly tying endeavors.
I would like to say thank you for the positive comments, compliments, and support of many friends and customers who have purchased one or all of my three of my fly tying DVD’s,
I hope and pray that I am able to continue fishing, tying flies, writing, and taking photographs for a long time. Thank you to all of those who have supported me!
