So I haven't posted in a while...(went to Belize for a couple of days)

Post by TX. » Sat Aug 17, 2019 12:19 am

....Because I haven't been fishing. At all.
I quit my job, tired of the bullshit, no plans.
But my awesome wife bought me a trip to Belize as a "retirement, scouting, birthday" gift.
Did I tie enough flies?

Good to see you posting and I’m glad you are breaking the shackles ......no doubt that you’ll land in a better place.


Pro tip :
I’ve been in that area of Belize twice this year with approx 10 days of diy. Caught lots of fish and had a blast.

I packed about like that with multiple boxes.
One fly survived both trips.

Have fun and take pics !!

Careless Ethiopian put it best "you always tie hundreds of flies for a trip, and use exactly 1"

So, how many did your 8 year old tie?

FYI, click share under the video screen and click copy.

In the post a reply window, click on youtube - it's the one farthest to the right. Then paste the link you just copied.

Delete the https://youtu.be/ (basically anything before the / and leave the wnP5mb9nmqU
