Winter Work part 3, Clearing The Hill;

Posted 04-11-2013 at 05:23 PM by Hardyreels

The adventure was all about work and some of it was as hard and heavy as any I've done in my life and I've not been shy about manual labor. The cabin looks great from the outside in the summer............... Even in the winter the outside looks good.

By the date I took this the snow had been deepening every day and the skies stayed steel gray for weeks on end.

How can you verify line type?

The first thing I do with a new fly line is mark the backing end..permanent marker. Long mark = 5...short mark = 1. so, an eight weight would be one long mark followed by 3 short marks.

Looks like this end of the state is going to be still water warm wart fishing. I guess it is always good to learn more something pretty new.

Just went out flailed the local pond well. How could I have 'forgotten' how to cast?!?!?! It wasn't that long ago.

Think I need to go get a wrist brace to break the habits I picked up with the #3 on small streams.

Snapping of flies on the back cast? CHECK
Casting "S"'s? CHECK

Time For Some Catching Up Here...............

As many know I was away from the forum, my home and of course this computer keyboard for the time span December 23, 2012 - March 27, 2013. Before I start writing a series of long photo filled entries about all the work and a few photo opportunities that I had over the winter at the cabin it seems appropriate to re cap 2012. The years entries wouldn't be complete without telling you about ............
