Exuma – our goto bonefish flies – Peterson

leave a comment »

So what are my (Our – Judy an I) goto flies for the Exumas’s Bonefish, then?

  1. Wilson’s Flats Fiend
  2. Spawing Shrmp
  3. Peterson’s Spawning Shrimp

Do we really need more than 3 syles!  So far the answer is no, but just as long as I have then in different weights.

As noted previously, I dislike the commonly used Craft Hair-Fur. I cannot get it to work as I like and I find it dead in the water. I like the naturals,  particularly Fox, Wolf, Rabbit, Calf Tail and Polar Bear.

So here is the Peterson’s Spawning Shrimp, once tied true to form with rabbit but with the long translucent haris of the Pb-Bear for the claws. The other where I have use a split tail from Paulo’s fish-on.

NO to iTunes

So on my last venture, I decided to confirm how many of my purchased songs cannot be played when I am not on the network – 60+%.

Nearly 2/3 of my purchases are not available on my travels – whether in a plane or remote locations through-out the world.

wow!

what a waste, and so the lesson with these arbitrary digital leasing rights from Apple and the publishers ….

.. NO to Apple iTunes

and buy the Media and own the song for you life – whether you are at home, in a place or in the desert is the Middle East.

Yesterday, I bought a CD from Stockholm’s First Aid Kit.

so, I continue to be a consumer of music, but I want to listen to the music on my terms.
