Well, Christmas has come and gone and we're close to welcoming a new year with new fishing possibilities. I'm sorry to report that I haven't done any fishing. We've been dealing with some seriously cold temps here in the Hole; minus 20 has been the norm lately and daytime highs haven't been high at all. Needless to say we've been hunkered down, only going outside to take Lulu for walks (who doesn't seem to mind the cold at all). Instead of donning the waders and long rod, I've been tying flies for the upcoming season. Right now most of the ties are nymphs; stoneflys, pheasant tail variations, zebra midges, etc. These are patterns that I use a lot in the winter months, but also in waters like the Green and Firehole rivers. The beginning of the new year is always kind of fun, forcing me to organize fly boxes and order fly tying supplies. Today Lulu and I are heading to the fishing cabin. I imagine there's some snowblowing to do and I've got some woodworking projects to get on.
