Focusing on the positive has changed the course of my life. 

Regardless of how small or large positive moments are, they perpetuate the existence of hope and joy in the lives of people.  In an effort to help keep this optimistic momentum moving, I’ve started “Flies4Friends”.  

During the month of February, I’ll be tying flies and sending them to my friends.  My hope is that when they receive them in the mail, it will bring a smile to their face and joy to their hearts.  On Instagram, I’ll be taking pictures of those flies and using the hashtag #Flies4Friends to encourage other people to do the same.  If you’re a tier or a buyer, I would urge you to join me by sending or giving at least one dozen flies to a friend this month.   Give them with no expectations of reciprocation, only with the knowledge that you’ll be bringing joy to another person.  

Regardless of where we exist in this world, we always have the ability to make a positive difference in the lives of others.  As fly fishers, we have a wonderful means to connect with people who love what we do.  This month, let’s use that connection to give to them instead of ourselves and in the process, make the world a more positive place.

  1. Howdy: I give a few flies away to friends, but a number of my flies to to TU and CFWEP kids fly fishing camp here in Montana at Georgetown Lake. I also tie a large number of flies for Reel Recovery, a national non-profit organization that conducts free fly fishing retreats for men living with all forms of cancer. They are looking for volunteers to tie flies as they use about 10,000 flies per year (reelrecovery.org)

  2. Because of the blessings of age,I can no longer wade and even sitting on the bank is a challenge. I can still tye so every time I can give others my”creations”,I get a fishing trip.
