Welcome to BugCrafters.com. Previously, I had the Web Site on one server and the Blog on another. But recently the Blog accounts and domaine were cancelled (my automatic renewal expired). Well, I have redesigned the Site to hold Static and Blog pages. Think I have everything working. All the old pages are back as well as the Beginner Flies and Methods use to tie them. I have checked all the links and they seem to be working. If you find a broken link, please let me know and I will fix it. The Blog is on its own page. Unfortunately, I was not able to retrieve the old post. Please feel free to comment, Like, and Share.23

Here are some tips to help the new fly tyer become more proficient. Have fun, and along the way, you will become part inventor, artist-craftsman, and entomologist.74
On October 22, 2022, the Northeast Arkansas Flyfishers met at Riverside Resort for a day of fishing and camaraderie. Five members met at 9:00 to fish and have lunch. There were several other people fishing when we got there. Everyone geared up and went fishing except Michael Lack, who took pictures.35
I had a hard time getting my fishing in for February. It was a short month with cold weather and ice at the end of the month. In addition, I was down with a cold for a week. But on the last day of the month, the weather turned nice with 65-degree temps. So I went to Craighead lake to fish. I didn’t catch anything, but I was able to practice my casting for an hour.
However, David Weingold and Michael Ames flew to Boca Raton, Florida, to fish for bass.32
The Fly Fishing Show is a series of shows presented by Ben Furimsky. The program has six different shows around the country; Edison, NJ, Atlanta, GA, Denver, CO, Pleasanton, CA, Lancaster, PA, and Marlboro, MA. The International Fly Tying Symposium is also one of his shows. This past weekend I had my first experience with the Atlanta Fly Fishing Show. Read More34
Like everyone else, I make New Years Resolutions every year. You know, the usual, be
healthier, exercise more, lose weight. But somehow, I can never keep them. So this year is going to be different. My resolution this year is to go fishing at least one time a month, minimum.
