The Sowbug Roundup
The Sowbug Roundup is this weekend in Mountain Home, AR.
Click HERE for details. This is one of my favorite
events to demonstrate in and probably the largest
fly tying event in the US. Lots of great tyers; lots
of nice people; and lots of great fishing.

Mustad Hooks - #28, #26 Treble, and #32

This unique Mustad Souvenir was given to me by Steve Tagami and 
Reid McKinstry from Mustad at the Bassmasters Classic last month.  It 
is approximately 30 years old and was a neat promotional item that
Mustad used at that time. Comparison to the eye of a normal size sewing
 needle shows how small that Size 32 hook really is. Thank you to Mustad hooks!
