By the time we made it back home I already switched mindsets from fishing to tying. Since I have no great fish stories or pictures to share, here are some recent ties coming off of the vice.
A couple dozen midges tied with Saturday morning coffee.
Here is a Crawdad pattern I'm working on. These are still in the testing phase. Tie some up and let me know.
This is the Drop Nose Dace originated by Gary LaFontaine. It hooked 50% of the largest fish I got into last year and is now a permanent staple in my box.
Here is a random shot of some flies recently off the vice. Some drys, midges, caddis, RS2's, Todd Special, Bugger variant, Golden Stones, Hairs Ears, etc, etc.
It's winter. Short days, tough fishing and plenty of time at the vice.
