Ronan's report

Monday 19th March, 2012

I'm currently having a bit of a problem with my emails. They're here, there and everywhere. There are in fact, more ready-to-be-answered emails in my inbox than flies in all my flyboxes put together. Significantly more - but I'm trying to change this - as every serious flyfisherman would do - by tying more.

They creep up on me, stealth-like, appear briefly on my phone and again on my laptop. Sometimes they flash and make interesting attention-seeking noises. I particularly like the sound they make when I reply to them - Vrooom - like a rocket. Which is of course highly ironic, since some of them date way back into history before we had rocket sounds for sending email.

But I would like you all to know, that your email is safe with me. I'm not one of those guys who just quickly answers an email, so he can pretend he's cleared his inbox, without actually reading them. Oh no, I take this responsibility seriously and I spend copious amounts of time thinking about emails before I answer them.

The more time it takes me to reply "yeah that's cool, Lars" the more truly thought-out the answer was. It may take a month. If you find yourself with a reply to an email that you sent me when you very much younger, be sure to remember that I've been thinking about it all this time. And if you haven't received it yet, then I'm either still thinking about it, or it is lost.

15th April 2011. That's the oldest unanswered email in my inbox. It belongs to Jo's brother, Adrian. Jo, if you're talking to Adrian any time soon, please let him know that I haven't forgotten him and I'll be answering his email shortly and that I had a great time in Exmouth. Thanks.

The problem is, he sent me a three page email, and the standard "yeah that's cool, Adrian" reply may not be appropriate any longer. If you've written to me prior to 15th April 2011 08:42 GMT and are still waiting for a reply, then you're email is most definitely lost. Sorry about that.

Last week was a four-day week at Sexyloops. But the Board was busy. We've been discussing the Constant Acceleration Myth, TLT Thrust, weather affects on Bernd's distance casting and what flies we've been tying today. Amongst much else!

Between emails I've been busy rebuilding my flyboxes for the start of the season. It comes as a surprise to many, that I'm a famous flytyer. I even had a professional stint for a while, but my flies proved too modern, too ahead of the times, for commercial application. So instead of pursuing a life-time of frustration, some eight years ago I created Operation Fluff - 100 fly patterns that are irresistible to trout, with complex flytying instructions, and precise photographic images.

Many considered it to be the highest form of flytying art ever published. But it is more than that. Much more. But you be the judge, you can see the full uncensored Operation Fluff here. Be warned: it will change your life.

If you're new to flytying, best not look.
