Mail Day Surpirse & Sam's One Bug

One of the downsides of mobile phones being so damn camera capable these days is that I end up taking photographs of something and then apt to forget about it since they don't show up the next time I download the media card from my Nikon. 

The other day I was thumbing through the photo album on my iPhone and came across a set of photographs that I took of a package that Wade Blevins, fly tier and artist, sent with a dozen flies fashioned after his father's warmwater favorite, the Sam's One Bug earlier in the spring.

Prior to this box arriving, Wade and I had traded messages on Instagram and there is a really interesting story to tell about the Sam's One Bug fly pattern that I hope will happen in the future, either on T.F.M. or elsewhere.  In the meantime, take a look a look at the detail in Wade's shipping box sketch which includes the smallmouth eye reflection of the Comrade logo. 

Wade Blevins is low drag without a website to care after but he's a good follow on Instagram to keep up with the latest flies from his vise and sketches.
