Today at Jimmy’s we got a new issue of The Drake. We have thirty copies of this issue in stock right now. I suspect we will need to reorder in about a week. This year there will be three issues of the Drake. Whenever the Drake shows up in the shop we are excited to read it from cover to cover. “Ask Trask,” is Jim Sr. favorite column. I have heard him mention many times, “that’s one smart dog!”
We also got a new piece of equipment for fly tying. It is called a Hands Free Magnifier. It is magnifing lens that inserts into a head band, allowing your hands to be free and tie flies. It comes with an “one size fits most” adjustable headband, and two magnifying lenses.
I got out fishing yesterday afternoon on the South Fork. It was nice to actually get out and cast a fly rod. I haven’t fished since October. I didn’t catch much and the fishing was slow. I was hoping to see some fish rising on midges, unfortunately I missed the hatch. Regardless Moose and I had a nice afternoon walking the banks of the river. I think Moose had more fun than I did, but that’s what typically happens when you take your dog to the river.
