My friend Alex is addicted to fishing. I tried to tag along but all I was interested in was trying to make jewelry from the shiny bits he tied to his line. Then recently, he got into fly fishing and showed me this video of salmon flies by Davie McPhail, which totally blew me away. I knew that there was a serious art in tying flies, but I had no idea how beautiful they were. Now I’ll just have to work on replacing the fishing hooks with earring hooks. The color combinations and designs are inspirational to work into whatever craft you make. Check it out:

I’m a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.

I was an editor for the first 40 volumes of MAKE. The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. Covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made.
