Knob Creek

Anyone ever go fishing in Knob Creek?  I wonder if the Tyler Legg from Tar Heel Fly Fishing knows anything about the fish in Knob Creek?
I love this 9 year Bourbon.  It is delicious.  I'm typically more of a single malt guy, but when bourbon is poured, this one is at the top of my list.  (Update - 9.20.10 - Had diner Saturday night at Belrose 333 in Radnor, PA.  Was thinking about a tasty drink to unwind my body and had a Manhattan with Knob Creek.  It was the perfect compliment to my Cesar salad and rare cheeseburger!)

Visit their site...has some cool facts.  Did you know that Winston Churchill's mother invented the Manhattan?

Tungsten Hot Wire Prince Nymph

It's been a few weeks since my last upload.  Had trouble getting any time to sit and focus on a painting.  This Prince Nymph was a fun one to paint.  I've used this pattern a number of times with some great outcomes.  I recently used in in some local PA Waters.
