It's almost time
 
I think it might have finally stopped snowing around here, and it looks like warm temperatures (45 degrees) are on their way this weekend. Its about time I got all my stuff together and started preparing for a day on the water.

I grabbed all my flies from my cubicle wall at work (I had them decorating my space to make the winter pass a little easier) and have them all tucked away and organized. All I need now is some sunshine and a patch of water that isn't ice. It's almost time....

Nick: Very nice selection of flies! We haven't been getting much snow out here in Wyoming so we are still hoping for some really monster spring storms either snow or rain would do.

Thanks. Every one tied myself. I think if we split all the snow and rain we got around here then we would both be better off.

Here's my box of flies that I tied this winter. Its only buggers and clousers, but I have a lot of variety in clousers! I think next I will tie some sort of top water flies. I also just got a TFO Professional 6 wt on sale at the Bass Pro spring classic. I can't wait for spring!

Went out today to scout out some local ponds (recently moved). Threw a line in the water for a few minutes but didn't get or see any action.

I'ts starting to smell like spring , the Robins are starting to use the suet feeders, Starlings are coming back ... won't be long until the muddy season. Tried a DHALO stretch yesterday, saw several Mink, A fox and a Racoon , no fish.. Nice box Nick.

It's almost time
 
Just got off the water..I kayaked up a old stream that flows into a good sized pond.threw a few different flies but only hooked one fish on a black bugger fish came right off the hook so I didn't even get to see it..but had to get off the water to go pick up the girlfriend.

Tomorrow is suppose to be in the high 50s so hopefully I will have some better luck tomorrow!
