keeping busy

five weeks without adding a single post here, i believe that’s a record for TLC but as the title suggests this lame blogger hasn’t just wilted off and died, i’ve just been busy doing other things, enjoying the break all the while thinking of TLC’s evolution.

among them, i’ve retrieved the three hundred or so sorely missing images that belong in the Fly Tying- A Complete Dubbing Techniques Tutorial reference article.
if it was just a matter of slapping on the images life would be easy but i need to insert them in their correct context and the files aren’t numbered in order and i have no valid reference as the complete article wasn’t copied for any future maintenance…
it’ll happen. can’t say when but it will.

secondly, there will be two new sections under the header:
– photography tips and tricks, equipment for fishing/outdoors imagery along with insights and other imagery blabberings.
– and a generalised ‘stuff we carry’ section. i’m trying to stay away from the EDC/Every Day Carry nomenclature as it’s typically associated to more or less just pocket knives, watches, lamps, etc  (i’ll of course talk about knives as i’m a knife geek !) but with a focus on outdoors/fisher people’s needs. FF-EDC ? we’ll see.

back to today’s post title, i like how these two images keep the eyes busy.
there’s no specific ‘focal point’ in either, my eyes keep going randomly everywhere within the frames, its sort of trance-like ! i hope you’ll enjoy, it’s good to keep busy.

Once you’re finished sucking out the marrow

you can go all DIY and carve your very own EDC BoneFishing rod ! coming out soon will be a carbon-reinforced sinew reel to complete this outstanding outfit, until then, let’s enjoy something quite novel.

ps- note the complete absence of bone loading yet very nice and tight loops. it kinda makes one wonder why loading and unloading a fly rod is so often referred to as the end-all in fly casting.
