A Mundane Monday....................

Even though I have been busy here at Fly Tyin' Times with various little projects, sometimes a Monday comes along and you just feel "Ho Hum" about it all.  So I feel a little Mundane on this Monday.  Probably feel tired tomorrow on Tuesday................................

In any manner, this particular post is just a bunch of little things thrown against a wall in hope that something sticks and my readers of the blog enjoy it, somehow!

I wish I had the energy of this guy..............................................................................


This is a picture that was passed along too me just this weekend.  It is the legendary, Lefty Kreh, doing what Lefty does best.  Lefty is shown here at a Fly Fishing Expo back east somewhere giving a fly casting demonstration while sitting on a stool to a crowd of spectators.  You see, folks, Lefty does it better sitting down at age (90 plus) than I can do standing up at my Geezer age.  What an incredible master of the art of fly fishing and fly casting he is. Go Lefty!

You heard it here, first!  I am considering fooling around with videos for my fly patterns.  I posted my first one (no fly included) just to let you see how much work I have to do before I can call my self worthy of posting anymore!  Here ya' go!

Secondly, I would like to thank all of those folks from Bloggerland to those who participate on Facebook for all of their support getting my Fly Tyin' Times Forum up and running over on Facebook.  Please feel free to stop over and say hello and see all the great stuff that has been posted by many who enjoy fly tyin' and fly fishin' for Panfish.  The Forum will only be as good as we, all, collectively make it......................

Also, a change too the blog page format here on the blog.  As you can see at the top of the blog page under the Fly Tyin' Times blog header is a list of the various pages I have added for the blog.  What I have done is took a past page and made many more usable y breaking down the various fly patterns I have shared here on the blog.  We now have a page for:
Check these pages regularly when you visit here if you are interested in the tying recipe's for each pattern or information on tying techniques used.  Always be on the alert if you are a fly tyer and interested in new patterns I use for Panfish and the occasional Bass.

    1. Thanks, Will, for the kind words.......
      I had to smile this morning as I re-read my post. Who would have ever thought that Lefty Kreh and Mel Moore would be pictured in the same blog post... Tee hee!

      I will continue to work on making the blog, the forum, and, my ugly video work better until you guys tell me to stop!

    1. Howard, I sure hope that is an "atta Geezer" comment made with love........
      That first attempt at taking a video was scary for me, and after showing nothing but my face, I am also sure that is was scary for those who viewed it, too!

    2. I was dead serious. I've thought about doing a little video thing every so often. What's your set up? It's working great for you. Mine...not so much.

    3. Howard, you are so kind! This video thing is a challenge for me for sure. I just want to share some fly tying videos for those patterns that I use for Panfish etc. I will take some baby steps into it and like I said to Will, in the previous comment, I will continue to do it until you readers beg me to stop!

      Currently, I am using my Samsung Tablet, to do the video work. It is easy to use and I hope that it comes together soon. Stay tuned!

  3. I'd say a little more work on the video is needed, but you're off to a good start.

    1. Mark, thank you for your honest feedback. Happy to hear I did not scare you off. Heck, I needed another challenge about now just to keep the mind and body in sync with the heart. Soon, I hope to do my first fly tying video for real. Your feedback is welcome!

    1. Thanks, Ralph, for your support as usual! I think I need to think about rather the time and energy needed to do it "right or acceptable" is something I want to add on. Lots of folks enjoy it for sure and do a good job with it. Maybe I should just go fishin'!

  7. A nice set-up you've got here on the blog, Mel. And you're a braver man than I when it comes to making videos. I'll look forward to watching your progress there.

    1. Thanks, Walt, for the kind comment about my blog. Really, I am not braver than you, Walt! That is a lot of the problem. I expect too much of myself and I am considering other options for getting my fly tying techniques and patterns usable. We will see........
