Tying Videos fro the Tiers Point of View

Just recently came up with a way to short videos from the tiers point of view. I did post a new video for the DH Hopper revised just recently and that was shot from the tiers point of view. I don't know if it makes a difference but I think it will be helpful to the beginning fly tier.  I did get a couple requests to see my set up for shooting videos from the tiers point of view. Here are a few pictures showing my set up. Bought a inexpensive spotting scope mount for a car window and then made a wood stand to mount it too. I'm setting the stand on my key board tray and using a small spring to hold it to the tray. It is actually fairly easing to work around. Please let me know if you have questions

It's Been a while

Just thought I would drop a quick post that I'm still alive and kickin. The blog has taken second fiddle to my job. Hopefully hear in the near future I can turn that trend around.  I have decided to keep the blog up and running.

Trip report Dream Stream 3/9/14

Quick trip report from a trip down to the Dream Stream on 3/9/14. Dale and I new we where in trouble when we hit Hartsel and the temperature gauge was ready around -15 and -18. We drove down past the main lot and headed down towards the inlet Eleven Mile. River was not fish able down low.
Lower river above Eleven Mile
 Moved up to the middle lot and head out to the  river and temp was still around -15. Fished till around 2:30pm, hooked and landed around dozen fish. Most of the fish where 16" to 20" range. The fly that seemed to working the best was a red Span Juan Worm and a size 16 flash pheasant tail. When we left the temp was up to 20 degrees. And when we hit Denver the temp was 70 degrees, what a swing in temps today.

It's been awhile, I'm still around and here is a quick fishing report from today

Took a little break from blog, thanks for every one's patience. Been dealing with a very busy home life. Fly tying and fly fishing has taken a little bit of a back seat. Excited about the rest of the year and the new year.

Got the kitchen pass to hit the river. Took off to the South Platte at Decker's. While I was getting geared up had this red fox come up a watch.

 Now lets talk about the fishing. the morning started out a little slow. Started out right below Decker's, flows where at 140cfs and the day was gorgeous.
 Dropped down below Turnbull at around 11:00am and that was when things really heated up. 1/2 dozen fish in about 45min and it stayed steady for the next hour. I haven't been down that far in a while and I was pleasantly surprised. The quality of the fish was great, nothing under 16" was brought to the net. Quite a few fish at around 18"
The flies of the day was a sparkle wing RS-2 and Mercury Black Beauty in a size 18. The "D" rib golden stone nymph did pick up a couple fish.
