I've been curious to learn has anyone been talking to Spence or Tony aka Gutcutter? I've not seen a post from either in over a year.

Me either, wondering what happened to them...?

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

Coincidentally I was at a local fly shop today and ran into Eric Naguski. I don't remember his screen name on Troutnut but he guides in central PA on the Letort, Big Spring, Yellow Breeches, and others. He knows Tony quite well and I asked him about Tony and Eric said he is in frequent communication with Tony. Tony is very involved in his four children and specifically in hockey with his two sons. Eric said Tony fished Henry's Fork twice in 2018 and Eric and Tony are going to fish it again in June 2019.

He's a "hockey Dad", sure that keeps him busy. Now what about Spence??


P.S. Four kids has got to be a handful!

I just shot a PM Spence's way, hope things are well with him.

Hockey Grandpa's are OK too, I've got 3 grandkids (2 boys and a girl) and my oldest daughter is the Equipment Manager in the Youth League sponsored by the AHL team here in W MI...great program, great sport.

Hey boys! Just got the note from Rogue. Sorry to have dropped out a bit. Been busy.

Hope you all are ok.

The Michigan Fly Fishing Club just finished their 42nd Midwest Fly Fishing Expo this past weekend. We had a wonderful show, but it’s a little work and I was there all weekend.

I’m in touch with Tony and Eric and yeah they are busy.

I’ll try and post a couple pics.

Thanks for trying to keep in contact!

HE LIVES!!! Glad to hear it, Spence. Been behind the vise a lot lately? Time for us all to start if we haven't...I haven't but I did organize all of my flies this winter so at least I know what all I got now.

Post any and all pics Spence, you know we enjoy 'em. Say hi to Tony & Eric for the rest of us!
