It's the season of fly tying, sitting in, and watching videos from New Zealand and Patagonia where it is summer right now. I hate that. When I'm stuck here preparing for a big winter storm some bloke in NZ is probably catching 27 inch browns on dry flies. As a bitter consolation prize, we get the Fly Fishing Show season. Today I went to the exposition in Marlborough, Mass. where I spent more than I should have on fly tying materials and enjoyed fellow CT angler Steve Culton's "Wet Flies 101" presentation as well as a bit of conversation afterward. But best of all, I got my mother to have a short casting lesson. She wasn't bad.
After this deluge things are going to warm up again big time, and I should be fishing TMA's in February looking for that next dry fly month to knock off the calendar
