    Better Than Us

    EXCEPTIONAL HOW TO
    A Local Pub Favorite
    from FlyAnglers OnLine

    .. Last June, or thereabout, we posted a note and pictures of a couple of flies that the neighbors were tying.
    .. They were successful on both the Friehole River and the Madison River, (post - a.)
    SHUCKSTER #1
    .. Then a week ago during the tropical period we noted that the neighbors were using one of those flies on the lowland Madison River and, on the Gallatin River during the occasional, (though sparse,) gray day hatches, (post - b.)
    .. Shocked and, flattered we were to see an excellent note about one of the flies in FlyAnglers OnLine and The Drake. The post in The Drake is the more complete of the two.
    .. The note in either post is essentially the same but they are  notable for the exceptional clarity of illustration and tying technique. Should you choose to tie the Shuckster #1 click on over there. It's an easy fly and very effective.
    SHUCKSTER #2
    .. In the distant past we would post recipes or techniques in this epistle.
    .. They were sketchy and often flawed or incomplete. It's not our forté.
    .. We are pleased to see the two notes and more pleased that one of our neighbors clued us in to the fine work. It's far better than we could ever do.
    .. Thanks again folks !!

    .. Just got back from Notellum Slough. Had some flurries in the morning. Had some rain too. The melt continues up here at a pace that is wondrous to behold.
    .. We'll schedule this post for early tomorrow morning and sleep in before trekking out into the magnificent warmth. It may hit 39°F - and it's still the middle of February!
