Chapter 58 Day 122 - Trout Season

One Fly Prizes Keep Coming

Over the years we've had some extremely talented people in the Blue River Fly Fishers group. 

One that comes to mind is Larry Horton.  Larry is a wood carver and he could take a piece of wood and fashion the most amazing image of a trout.  I've seen several of Larry's creations, and just happen to own one trout carving by Larry that came courtesy of David Dillow.  I think the wood sculpture I have is my most prized fly fishing possession. 

Another name that comes to mind is Lane Kregel.  Lane builds custom knives and one year he created a knife to donate to a fund raiser we was having in support of the catch and release area.  Lane's knife went in a silent auction at a price of $125.00.

Now, we have a fellow named Wyatt Spurgin and with Wyatt it seems there's nothing he's not good at.  He's a well-versed photographer, fly creator, builds his own rods, crafts his own nets, and now he has hand-crafted a fly box and tells me he is going to donate it as a give-away at the 1st Annual One Fly event. 

Here's a look-see at Wyatt's creation.  Good luck on winning it.
