Lake run fishing has been exceptional lately and I've been fishing more then tying. The weather is quickly turning however, so I've found a little more time at the vise. Recently I've found inspiration and motivation from tying with my daughter, and a couple of my fishing friends. It has gotten to the point that I needed to build an addition on my desk!
My daughter has been tying around twice a week for a little over a half hour each session. She has been tying her typical 'streamers' which consist of anything and everything that looks interesting. Her technique has developed though, and I believe any day now she will start tying actual patterns.
Lately I've been tying marabou spey flies, in hopes of intriguing the local post spawn lake run browns.
Remember this off season to invite your family and friends to join you at the vise and tie a few flies!
