Fly tying during the winter is a respite for getting through the dark winter months. This past weekend, a good friend invited me over to tie some flies. Dave has the ideal "man cave" set up for tying, and it is a great place to set up the vises and work on filling the fly boxes with favorite patterns. Fly tying with a friend is a great way to share tying tips, new patterns, and stories from last season's fly fishing trips. After a productive afternoon of tying, our fly boxes welcomed the addition of bead head nymphs, copper john's, and a secret pattern created by noconympher.
Hit the vises if you have been putting it off. Warm weather is just around the corner!
