  1. Great shots. What the heck is that odd looking bug?

  2. that tape reference should come in handy at the vise….

  3. I would tend to agree JP. the Bug images are also updating on the naturals page for quick and easy referance in the future.

    Wendy, I have no idea. I will be looking, I thought spider at first but I don’t think so anymore.

  4. crey fish, giant water beetle?

  5. Great photos! It is shaping up here to be a good opening weekend. Not as lucky as you to have a winter season. Shoot me an e-mail, I want to ask you a question about your fly patterns.
