My name is Hugh Kelly and this is where I post fly recipes, thoughts about fishing and any other stuff that my wife doesn’t want to hear anymore. I grew up fishing wet flies in the Rangeley area in the 1960’s and I still use them today. It figures that classic wet flies would finally come back into fashion; I’m not wearing bellbottoms again for anybody.
I try to write about old classic flies but I find I’m always interested in the new fly on the block that everybody’s using, so you’ll see some new stuff here too. And everyone loves a streamer here in Maine.
I’m cheap…er…I mean frugal…er…I mean thrifty. So you’ll read about how I try to save money on materials. If you have suggestions about that, email me or make a comment.
Some of what you’ll read here is re-written from articles I write for a fly tying column; I shorten them and I include stuff here that would be out of place in a sporting journal. And every once in awhile, just to see if you’re paying attention, I’ll mention a pond or two that you should know about.
