I am back in town, finally, and am ready to resume tying SCE flies. 

Do you think I'll be allowed to tie flies and talk? 
(Guess which one I'm better at?)


I'll be there.  My flies for tonight will be:


These 3 are my winter FreshWater Go-To flies

I've actually posted half of my favorites on this map tool.

This fly is actually one of my 3 freshwater winter "go-to" flies.

Fish it slow, because at this time of the year the fish slow down too.

In the water it looks alive with the squirrel hair dancing with the slightest movement.

I've caught 'gills, LMB, catfish, aand crappie so far on this fly.

More of my winter favorites posted soon.

Recipe updated

Size 12 nymph hook (I use Mustad 7671)
Size 6 black thread
Gold/brass bead chain eyes
Zonker style Squirrel skin
Your favorite head cement

Tie in the eyes and cover the shank with thread.

just showing the natural lay of the hair fibers

Tie in at the bend of the hook.  I leave about a hook length out.   Others like the tail end shorter or longer.

Palmer the skin tightly and keep the layers from bunching up.

When you get to the eyes, make an "X" across them.  This pictures shows the first pass.

Make a couple of half hitches.

Add your head cement, let dry, and go fishing.

That is a great report!  You should drag along a cameraman.

I'll make sure to mention it at the next AAA
(Armchair Anglers Association) meeting.   ;D

An old man and his wife were sitting in their living room, quietly enjoying each other’s company, he reading, she doing needle work, when she looks over to him and asks, “Why did you marry me?  You knew you would have to leave your home up North, find a new job down here, find a new place to live, and start your life over.”  He looked over to her and replied, laughing, “I was stupid.”  She settled back with a contented smile and said nothing more. 

Days went by, maybe even weeks.  The old man still couldn’t understand why she was content with that answer.  He asked her, finally.  “Why did you take such a simple and silly answer and leave it at that?  Shouldn’t I have said that I did it all because I fell in love with you?”  She replied.  “But dear, people fall out of love all the time.  I have never heard of anybody falling out of stupid.”

Mike is always willing to share what he knows, and his skills as an instructor are without peer.

He has supported the club, Boy Scouts, Vets, and numerous others during the short time I've known him.

We are lucky to have him.

Carpman once again is successful!

Almost 30 fish landed.  Howling wind was a challenge, but we caught fish anyway.
