No, we're not talking about that time when you whipped up a couple Black Caddis on the banks of the Madison with nothing more than a spoon, a Leatherman and some fuzz from your socks. That's cool, but here we're talking about fly-tying "in the field," i.e. Iraq.

First sergeant Joe Cunningham is stationed with the 82nd Airborne Division and sent us some images of what he likes to do when off duty. Prior to his deployment, Cunningham astutely shipped ahead his vise and tying tools, and now spends his spare moments tying flies. He's currently working on spinning some bass bugs to use on the farm ponds of North Carolina in anticipation of his return home in July. If you'd like to get in touch with Sgt. Cunningham to discuss fishing and tying visit flyrodreel.com.
