Well I have 2 months off to take care of my son so for the first couple weeks nap time has meant tying time. I think this year may be the first I have a full fly box going into the season. Too bad the Skagit/Sauk are in such bad shape....Hopefully they will clear up by February.
Will start putting up posts of my winter flies as I fill up my box. Since my digital cam is broken I am using my scanner but the flies are coming out OK.
Here is another shrimp fly for team L.I.M.P. members.
This is my one and only orange fly in my box. Famous Atlantic Salmon pattern that flytyer turned me onto. Works for steelhead as well and I like the slim profile , it sinks very well unlike a GP.
