Our sons, Mert and James, and I, had pitched tents and camped out the night before, making a campfire and doing some serious storytelling, with an occasional adult beverage to whet the whistle and ward off the chill.

The absolute best part of that trip was watching my son, the soldier stalk the fish.  For some reason the LMB were skittish that day, and would run at the slightest movement or noise.  Mike was right there, coaching, guiding, and teasing.  When he hooked into that decent fish he whooped and hollered like any kid. 

He didn't catch it on a fly, this time.  But his hopes are up, and he now knows he can catch good fish in Texas.

Mike has already given the Grey Lady some tadpole flies to test.  They look great.  Zonker strips always have great action in the water.

On her first Saturday off, we are headed that way.

Thanks to Mike's encouragement, my son, SSG James L. Puckett,  caught a 3+ LMB out of Duck Lake just a few days after Christmas, using unconventional methods.

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?)

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.
