Where is the time going, Thanks, 2010 in the rearview mirror.

Everytime I sit down to put something on the blog, something comes up so I have not been very active here. I have managed to get out and wet a line this fall and winter a few times, not as many as I would have liked, but each time I did get out, was well worth it. I was also able to get out and carve some turns in the fresh powder that has been dumping snow on the mountain, which will be a good cleansing for the river systems in the mountains this spring.

I have found myself tying flies for myself and customers, had a great year both at the vise, on the water and life in general.

This year I was able to fish Montana, Idaho, New Mexico and my beloved state of Colorado. I want to reflect on this past Year. 2010 was a busy year for me flytying. I did demos all over the front range at several shops, a few Trout Unlimited Chapters tying events, Denver Fly Fishing Show, and was added to the Partridge of Redditch International Pro Staff. I added several new customers around the country and globe for custom tied flies of my designs which is very rewarding.

A few of the patterns that made it into anglers boxes have been my BWO pattern, Stones of the Underworld, Caddis of the Underworld, Bunker Torpedos, midges galore and the newest pattern the ET Adams.

As this year comes to the end, I want to thank the folks who take the time to read Father Natures Life on the Fly Blog and who have contacted me about tying flies for them, the shows, the demos, and Partridge of Redditch for adding me to their Pro Staff. I am looking forward to 2011 in terms of fly tying, and fishing. Thanks to all, hope you all have a Happy Holiday Season.

Chad aka Father Nature!
