First a note about our friend Callen (Xstreem Fishing Fiji)and family. They got slammed for 3 days by Cyclone Tomas. The good thing is that there was only one death reported but the island has been, for the most part, trashed. I suspect that we will hear from Callen as soon as they have electricity again. We're waiting for an update and have our fingers crossed.
Second, Shoreman has broken down and decided to take a fly tying class or 2. Mike at American Fly Fishing Company in Sacramento has convinced me that I should be tying my own flies, at least Wooly Buggers and the little black thing I hooked that big trout on yesterday. It now has a name. It's called a wiggle tail apparently a common and easily tied fly. Easy for those of you that tie flys on a regular basis. Hard for those of us that have big hands and basically stumble around just tieing a fly on the line.
Day one is on Sunday April 4th. This is reserved just for the Wooly Bugger experience. Now I have to figure out how I'm going to convince my wife that I need to spend more money of fly tieing vise and all the goodies that go with it. I can grovel with the best of them.
That's it for today.
