    Season 1 Pretty Much Over

    If you look in the 'Fly Tying Round Table' sub forum you will find some 'Tie Along' threads by Pocono. These are very helpful no matter what type streamer you are going to tie up. I will have to see how the winter pans out for spare time but may do a step by step post for tying the original Nine Three feather wing streamer. That particular pattern has been good for me in every river and creek I've ever thrown it into.

    You should think about making more entries to this blog. Even though it's winter and you may not be fishing you will get outdoors and if you take any pictures you can tell a story. I have stories on my pages about everything imaginable, from moose to frozen septic systems. The members will find them and if you start building up a good blog but don't get readers I'll plug you with a post to let them know your writing.

    Good post here,

    Thanks for the comments, Ard - I did have some wooly buggers along, both in dark, nearly black, and white, but didn't give them a go on that day. I haven't started tying my own flies, yet, but I'm definitely interested in learning about patterns that are successful. Now I'm fully in the phase of dreaming about next year, looking forward to the fly show, doing plenty of reading, and scheming about a couple of trips for next year.

    At least you didn't get skunked for your efforts. By the pictures I'd say it would be a good day even if you didn't catch anything. If you get another chance at it why not try your hand at streamer fishing. It's a whole nuther game to learn but is my favorite way to fish. Especially in the fall when the bugs are scarce and the fish hungry. You fish them going down stream and just toss them across and let the current swing them out till the fly is strait down. There's plenty more to having a good strategy for fishing streamers but what I describe is as good a start as any.
