I'm not sure how much more I can take of this winter. I'm actually getting quite sick of just showing you flies I'm tying. Dont get me wrong, I love sitting in front of my vise creating flies for myself and for others........but I miss the feel of cork in my hand, the feel of line between my fingers, the sight of my line as it lands on the surface of the water,but above all I miss the feel of a fish struggling to free itself from that fly line. Sure flies are an intregal part of the process but being outside, chucking large wads of fluff is what keeps my soul on an even keel and its just at about breaking point......I know what your thinking,snap out of it Si! but 5 months through a long cold dark winter is a real test for anyone who loves to fly fish as much as I do.So you'll just have to bare with me for a few more weeks and put up with a barrage of flies until then.
