T.F.M. Spotting - Weekend At Joe Wright

 Austin Clayton of The Colorado Experiment (not recently updated but still worth a look since he's got skills at the vise) recently took a weekend trip to Joe Wright Reservoir with friends and sent along a few photographs for the T.F.M. Spotting Photo Contest.

Take care buddy." about an update to your blog on what you've been tying lately?
