Mostly about fishing...maybe a few odds & ends thrown in.
Dave – I really like that Gartside Sparrow. Looks a bit like a clouser swimming nymph. Trout, carp, and just about anything will eat that.
The Clouser Swimming Nymph is a good pattern too. John, I've recently been looking through a fellow's blog at http://missouriflies.com/...if you haven't already seen it, you might find it interesting. The guy catches a lot of grass carp and catfish on flies, and has a number of his own patterns.
