The next interview will be with Thomas Harvey of Carolina Fly. This guy designs and ties some awesome flies and is really inspiring. I’ve been following his work for awhile and I’m looking forward to interviewing him.
Michigan fly tyer Todd Schotts tells me he has a fly pattern he will be sending my way to post on FrankenFly. Todd is a great guy and a great tyer. I can’t wait to see this pattern!
You might have heard of Juan Ramirez of the Hopper Juan blog. Besides writing an interesting blog, Juan is a fly tyer and fly fishing guide. Juan will be giving us a look inside his fly box. This should be way cool!
Speaking of Indiana, I just spoke to Wildcat Creek Outfitter’s guide Mike Exl today via phone. Mike has been working for Wildcat since he was a teenager and teaches fly tying classes at Wildcat. I’ll be writing up a post and Mike will be sending me some of his handy work from the vise.
Experienced Michigan guides Jeff Hubbard and Mike Decoteau are both planning to contribute something to FrankenFly as soon as guiding season is over. So we should be hearing from both by the first of January hopefully.
One of Old Au Sable Fly Shop’s guides Alex Lafkas is in the process of sending me a couple patterns to include here at FrankenFly. That will be an early Christmas present receiving flies from Alex in the mail.
The totally awesome Mike Schmidt of Angler’s Choice Flies has confirmed that he will contribute to FrankenFly. He has been busy with orders and shows lately.
I plan to review some Clear Cure Goo products soon. I’m impressed with their products and I hope to write an informative review.
Last but not least I want to give a shout out to the print magazine, The Cedar Sweeper. This is a very nice Michigan fly fishing magazine in print. I have been blessed to have the editor Charles Sams publish several of my articles in The Cedar Sweeper. The next issue will be coming out very soon. So check it out, it’s a great read!
