Between family, job, a hurricane, and numerous other obligations I haven't had a whole lot of extra time for other extra-curricular activities, let alone blogging. I think it was high time that I got back up in the saddle with several posts that I had intended to post a while ago. This past summer I had actually started a second blog....American Sakasa Kebari. The purpose of this blog is to serve as a repository for variations and recipes of my favorite type of fly to fish and tie...the sakasa kebari. Anyone can submit their own take on this type of fly for all to appreciate and share. The initial response was good and over 30 variations can be found on the blog to be seen by anyone interested in this fly. I'm hoping to add many more of my own creations as well as those of many of the other very talented fly tiers out there. If you are interested please feel free to contact me on how to contribute your own creations. I think that sites such as this and others serve as great sources of inspiration and ideas for yet more variety.
