New water!

I have not been to some of these places for 7 years and one hadn't been seen since 1989 so this was a good change of scenery and fisheries for me.

I tried that "tie 100 wooly buggers approach" but made it through five before wanting to try all sorts of crazy patterns. Now buggers are tied in all colors in between other patterns as technique practice and box filler, because I still love buggers and know that I will never have enough.
