As I was tying some big Fat Albert's last night, I realized that they probably wont even hit the water until late summer. Some flies that I tie, I can toss out all year round. Some have to wait for the right season. Do you keep that in mind when you sit at your vice, or are you like me and tie up whatever you feel like?

there are seasons?

"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading".--Thomas Jefferson

 

There is no such thing as a blank day for a fisherman. It will be saved for him by the white-throated weasel, who watches his fishing from a hole in the wall under which is lying a fish that refused all flies; or by the excitment of identifying insects; or by the apple-bloosom in a nearby orchard; and no one would call that day a blank on which he has seen a king-fisher." -- Arthur Ransome Rod and Line, 1929

I filled up two shopping carts late last night
The one was full of fishing gear, the other newcastle ale
The checkout-lady laughed and said 'You think you got enough'
And I said 'Yeah, You're probably right', and filled another two carts up
Gonna catch all the fish, Gonna drink all the beer, Gonna head outta town, We're not staying here
Might take all day, might take all year, Till we catch all the fish, Till we drink all the beer

I used to tie to keep a box filled with essentials but the last few years I have tied alot so I have lots of backups . Allows me to fish heavily weighted flies more agressively and not get so bummed when I lose em. Has improved my fishing
