Todd was so impressed by my "classic wets and streamers" box (yes, I tied all of them) he snapped a pic with Joe & I in the background

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

Beautiful pics, those streams are beautiful. Look like something I would enjoy throwing my 1wt around in. Those beers all local brews?

I have a 6 1/2-foot 2-weight setup I got just for these cute little creeks! You just CAN'T use anything bigger, unless you want to spend all of your time unhooking your fly from everything but fish...

NO IDEA where the guys find their "strange brews", they must both know some really fancy beer stores! I don't drink anything alcoholic these days so I am clueless on exotic beers and liquors and etc. Iced tea or root beer are my preferred thirst relievers.
