Default winter is here again

While the wife is in the kitchen getting the Thanksgiving dinner ready I'm online looking for fly fishing related information to read.

Found a thread with some flies that looked like they just might induce a bluegill to bite, so I tied up my imitation of what was pictured. Just a bit of silk floss and a deer hair wing, but it might work.

Now if I could only try them out and see if the 'gills like their looks........
Well, the lakes aren't ice covered yet, and I know I'll be ready to get outside after we eat, so I may find out later today.

Heck Mike, you've got it made there. I've been up baking pumpkin pies since 6:30 AM and am about to go start making the stuffing for the bird............... You've tied up some great looking Caddis there and those will catch darn near anything with fins. If your ponds are still open I would go fishing. Everything is frozen here and has been for a few weeks now. Kenai still has open water but it's almost 300 miles and the weather is gonna have to take a drastic turn before I take a rod and go outside. This is the time of year when I work on my snow plowing skills and dig out the really warm clothing

Happy T. day,

Ard

Mike: Nice work on those flies, they should be very effective. Everything here is frozen solid execpt for the tailwaters. Good luck and be sure to post a report on your results.

Went out, but the recent rain had the water so stirred up I didn't have any luck. Not really worried about the fly being the cause for lack of success, though.
It still felt good to get out and give it a try.

What do you mean, you "didn't have any luck"??? You got out!! I (and others) didn't! A bad day fishing is still much better than a good day working! - Or participatin in "FFF" (forced family fun). LOL!!
