An early gift from Daddy Claus.

My daughter has a little four foot Christmas tree in her room just like I always did when I was a kid. My wife suggested that maybe I could make her an ornament/fly for her little tree. The tree is pink, and it just so happens that I have some pink material. I ran several patterns through my head, and then it came to me. I ended up tying a pink Seaducer for her. I cut the end of the hook off and ran some Cajun Red 40lb line through the hook eye as a way to hang it on the tree. Here it is!

Closed for the season

I give many thanks to all of the customers and supporters of Auglaize Fly Shop for an awesome season this year. My fly fishing season is unfortunately over for this year. The weather played havoc with my pike fishing exploits. Every time I wished to go, it rained and raised the rivers and made presenting a fly next to impossible.

With that being said, Auglaize Fly Shop is officially closed for the 2011 season and will re-open April 1, 2012. I realize that many folks do buy a lot flies in the fall/winter, such as those who chase steelhead, salmon, and other coldwater species, or warmwater fly fishers who live in warmer areas. I've decided to close up shop for the winter because we're more of a locally based shop and I wished to take some time off during the off-season and spend the holidays with friends and family.

I'll still periodically update this blog through the season. Thanks again everyone for a wonderful year and we'll see you in 2012!!!!!
