Ok – so winter was a washout when it came to tying up flies – if I had my head screwed on I would have tied up some at the end of last season however due to Pike Madness pretty much everything went by the wayside.
I thought people who moaned about having no free time when they had children were just bloody bad at time management – turns out, no matter what you do, you are always behind on all tasks and tying some flies comes way down on the list.
So over the last couple of weeks I have been tying up as many flies as possible – giving the JVice a bit of a workout.
Turns out when you have not tied a lot of dry flies you get rusty – well – Deer Hair Emergers turn out like horror shows and you must tie a half dozen before you remember how to do them correctly.
I am fishing a small stream on Sunday – finding some proper rising trout (starving).
I hope I can remember how to roll cast!
