It is blowing and raining, on and off John.
A good reason to tie flies alright.

These are part of an order for a friend who's going to fish in Sweden.
No steamers, bead heads or weighted flies.
I joked that he'd need my spiders and he got back asking me to tie them.
There's a lot to be said for shutting up sometimes ;-).

Fire, red wine and a tying vise... perfect for a wet winter night....

Simply lovely as always, Tim.
In ancient times, cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.

Hoped I'd sent a couple to you Ray, with my swap flies.
If not, will include in the next swap!

Fish when you can, not when you should! Anything short of this is just a disaster.

Too kind of you Doug.
If I'm tying it, the fly will be easy to tie!

Was having a conversation earlier today.
One of my most successful flies this season was a #16 bead head nymph.
A fly that was very reliable but one I didn't enjoy using.
The Starling and Hare's Lug was much more fun to use, especially in #16.
