Hi Mark. Glad to be counted among your friends. Have I ever asked  if you've made a tutorial on designing poppers? Like I said, I've made a few for bass and gills, but not nearly as finished as yours. I'm going to get back on it this winter. I need to quit tying trout flies I never use, HA!

Hey Mark I picked up some of your bugs off the cards in Bob's for my dad's birthday......He's an avid fly fisherman down in Louisiana and I liked several of your featured flies......Great work on them!

Hi Mark, Thanks for the info on the rod building site. I have looked at that before and it's very helpful.

Talk to you later.

Hey Mark, Very nice work on the flies and the rod.  Any advise for a new rod builder?  I've made a few spinning rods and rewrapped a few older fly rods and made quite a few ice rods.  I'm just getting a good hold on the processes and I find it very relaxing. I Look forward to talking to you.

Mark, The sparkbug I use a size 8 or 10 2X long!!!! Have tied in 3x long also!!! My favorite color is black with pearl flashabou I just used the black flashabou and chartrues maribou to hel see the steps, but have caught fish on it as well!!!! The pearl flashabou takes on a chatruess color in the water in the sun light!!!!

I'll be trying to catch some Yellow Perch on Northwest when I get home later this month....

At 6:03pm on December 6, 2011, Jeffrey D. Abney said…

Absolutely......I did a tour of duty at the missle facility and I fished the freshwater side of Cooper and Foster Creek several times a week.....I caught some beautiful stringers out of there.....I went out there for a couple hours Sunday but water temps are down to 56 so we just caught a few smaller fish. I catch some good fish down here in Spring and Summer, but I try to stay home from April through September because my fishing is so good at home......

Sounds Good to me....I'm a CTE in 246 working the Sub side of the house. I'm down working the Charleston Boats right now....

How's things in Chesapeake Mark? I'm currently down in S.C. working but look forward to getting back out when I get home later in December...

I was on the Carolina side Saturday and saw steady water temperatures around 58 degrees.

Remember the world record Flier is 1 Pound 4 ounces and Northwest holds some good ones Mark. I've been within 3 ounces the last couple years and I have released all the big ones. Glad to hear the news about the oxygen levels. Several of the rivers in Carolina are still a little low on oxygen, sustaining life but little to no fish activity, especially the Perquimans River. It is minnow time for sure. I'm still working full time for a living but I go as often as I can. Don't need another cold front but it looks like another is on the way. I was going to sneak out a little early tomorrow but the South winds are going to be blowing big time. Good luck to you Mark and welcome again to BBG!
