Good news, we have not been able to get out fishing yet. Wife's kin all in Harvey's path and we were checking with them and now vehicle problems, seems one thing after the other, but it will all work out in the end. Keep catching those crappie! Take care, John. :smile:

Went out of a pond.  Took a long time to find the fish and/or the pattern they wanted.
Got some nice crappie during the last hour.
All on a sparkle eyelash yarn fly.

What a hoot. I've tied flies blindfolded, with no vise, and with crazy unconventional materials but never in my sleep!  Ms. Marilyn better keep a close eye on you

With hurricane Harvey and all the problems it has caused i forgot to tell y'all of a funny situation that happened night before last. I have heard of people walking in their sleep, but until night before last never heard of anyone tying flies in their sleep. I do NOT remember any of this, but my wife sure does. Sometime during the night I sat up in bed and was moving my hands like I would if I was at my fly tying vise, my wife, Marilyn, asked me, ''What are you doing?'' I told her, ''What does it look like, I'm tying flies.'' She then told me to go back to sleep, which I did. I guess that is way better than nightmares. Hope you got a chuckle out of this. Take care, John. :roflmao:

This is for all the Warmfly members in Harvey's path, wife and I both send prayers for all Y'all's safety. The news from that part of the country has not been good at all. Wife and I are both familiar with the area, we grew up there, but moved to Mo, after I got out of the USAF. Please all, be safe and check in with us when you can. May God keep you in his safe arms. Take care, John.
