Funny thing is, he doesn't know it, until maybe now.
I used a kebari tied by Craig to go fishing after work yesterday. I received them in a fly swap almost a year ago. So while he wasn't actually there in body, he was there in tie. I figured the size 6 fly would be perfect for the bluegill and occasional bass that lurk in the pond down the street from my house. They were. Super rad that a fly hand tied by a guy in Iowa caught fish in Northeast Florida.
(Yeah, I know everything is pretty much made somewhere else, but you get my point).
How often do you fish with flies that friends have tied for you?
I'd love to hear in the comments below.
I might try fishing with Anthony...or Adam...or Mike...or perhaps Kiwi tomorrow.
