since living here, I slack off in the summer when all the water gets too hot and slimy to bother with. Right now we're in the tail end of the really good bass and crappie fishing in the local ponds, which is Jan-Feb. Next month there will be 3 weeks or so of good topwater action for bass, and that is fun even though I've never been able to really care much about largemouths. March-Apr-May is prime time for some of the lakes I fish in Florida for bluegills, so that is coming up. I'm hoping to possibly get home to Pennsylvania in June, which would be almost perfect for smallmouths and walleyes in the Allegheny, so I need to tie more stuff for that.

I've always tended to really tie for what I can fish at that time, or what is coming up in the near future. Right now I'm working on stocking up on my favorite bluegill flies, and tying some saltwater patterns which I hope to be able to use for Florida panhandle stuff pretty soon.

the gales of November remembered...

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 start tying something for the season opener then find myself tying stuff that won't work till summer or fall.
Then I keep tying till I get tired. sleeping.gif

Tie a man a fly and you give him fresh air, some exercise and a lot of fun. Teach a man to tie flies and eventually it takes over all free time, a room in his house and several thousand of his dollars.
