If you think my Usual looks a bit funky, that's because I used caribou body hair in place of hair's foot fur for the wing. I find it takes longer to saturate in faster moving water.

It's Cold Outside
The forecasters say it will warm up on Wednesday and stay warm through the weekend, and as long as it stays hospitable on Saturday I plan to make the long trip to a watershed that is supposed to hold brook trout but that I have yet to explore. I've been furiously refilling my small stream box, and if everything goes right I should get a few on dries. I have tied 8 new Ausable Bombers, 5 Usuals, 6 parachutes Adams, and a bunch of Bivisibles and Palmers. For the lazy big brookies, I tied Pinkies, Gartside Sparrows (Thanks to Kirk and his large brooky), and Crazy Shrimp.
