Welcome back to the new NEFF. Take a break from Twitter and Facebook. You don't go to Dicks for your fly fishing gear, you go to your local fly fishing store. Enjoy!

Fly Fishing Art


Wet fly fisherman.
Sure, I take photos, but I'd rather share this way:


Original Watercolor


Pen & Ink

Very nice work Mark!! I love the pen and ink very well done and the water color is superb as well! Close as I will ever come to these is my fly tying. Thank you for posting them.
Again with the bears????? Had one stop eating the blueberries yesterday and take a big sniff of the air to figure out why he smelled cooked bacon.....was eating my breakfast sandwich while he was chewing his leaves and twigs.....it is amazing that the can get so big eating mainly plants

This is a no shitter !

Today one of the guy's here told me he was out in the woods by his house last week and almost stepped on a female black bear laying down.

She jumped up right in front of him, the bear ran about 10 feet out in front of him turned and was bouncing up and down on her front hooves, the two cubs each took off in opposite directions.

This is a guy who hunts for bears in Maine every year.. he said he knew he was dead if she charged.

Lucky for him she didn't, lucky for the bear he didn't have a weapon.

I don't know if I'll be able to sleep tonight thinking about some bear bouncing up and down in front of me.

Lucky for me I have someone willing to check under my bed every night before I go to sleep for bears.

Nice art you got there Soft-hackle! As for the bear stories, it's cool to hear about the breakfast-smelling-hungry-bear by kindanewbie77.
