Slivers of Light

Chiricahua National Monument in southern Arizona is other-worldly. Have you been there? I think it rivals, even surpasses, Utah’s Arches National Park. Chiricahua feels intimate yet has a scale of grandeur. I had never heard of this place before we visited it over the New Year holiday.

Minnow Bugger – Wet Fly

The Minnow Bugger is large as trout files go with its hook measuring about an inch. Some flies are minuscule. This pattern simulates a minnow thus is necessarily larger than the ones that represent gnats and bugs. It travels below the surface of the water making it a “wet fly”.

Royal Coachman Marabou

This trout fly is a variation of a classic Royal Coachman pattern. It’s popular and one of the better known lures among fly fisher-folks. This painting is one of my ongoing series of watercolor fishing lures. It pairs nicely on the wall with other paintings in the series or it displays very well all byContinue reading “Royal Coachman Marabou”
