This is really worth watching. It’s Frank Sawyer’s Pheasant Tail Nymph tied as Frank Sawyer would have tied it. Three materials only: Hook, Pheasant Centre Tail & Copper Wire. No Silk – therefore no bobbin holder, no whip finish tool – just the three materials and a scissors.

Damsels in Distress!   

You have to watch this! If this doesn’t stir your blood nothing will!

Osprey Fishing

This is really something to watch.  What a magnificent bird.
Hard to believe this Osprey got 5-6 fish at a time and then got a flounder under 3 feet of water and made off with what looks to be a 5+ lbs steel-head. Have  you
ever seen a bird shake water off like a dog  does? Wouldn’t  want to get in its way when its eyes locked onto you, and his talons are in the “load” position! It’s talons are amazing!
There are 3 sequences in this one video: 1st  sequence – catches half a dozen fish in one strike.  2nd sequence – plunges talons into deep water to grab the  prey.  3rd sequence – captures a big old fish that looks as if it weighs more than he does!
This is incredible to watch!  Next  time  I  go fishing,  I want to take this guy along with me!
See If you can guess where the trout will rise.
