The rest of my time during this cold spell has been spent working at home, practicing driving, and tying flies. At the moment I am filling my upsized streamer box. I bought a large box for my articulated and stinger streamers and moved my single hooked (in my mind small) streamers from a small box to a medium box. That small box is now being filled with big nightime surface bugs (mice, wakers, foamulators). So that has created a lot of gaps with which I am filling with a healthy variety of big gnarly trout getters. That on its own is a lot of tying, especially on the deceiver style flies, but the bulk of my current tying time is being occupied by a large order of woolly buggers for Dette Trout Flies. The first of many shipments should be going out Monday, 96 white #4, 96 white #6, 48 yellow #4, 48 yellow #6. The entire order totals... well, a lot.
Fortunately for my sanity warmth has arrived once again. The next couple weeks should be some pretty great winter fishing. And not the hard water kind.
