Getting Ready For Stauffer


Recommended Posts

Roy anyone up at 3:30 am would for sure ice fish. :cold: ::ice fish:: My thought is if you can cast into it, it's not ice fishing.

No ice fishing against... the code, Walton would be turning in his grave, if we didn't give the fish a rest. :cold:


Nose to the grindstone.. finishing a few patterns from Edmonds & Lee. I had completed orange & partridge, but they look a bit darker than translated, so have to make my own wax for pearsall's silk.


As you know Sylvester Nemes is rally know for his midge pattern syl's midge. I have started tying from his instructions from his book Soft Hackle Fly Imitations.post-276-0-37824000-1363203629_thumb.jpgpost-276-0-56735700-1363203647_thumb.jpg

Well - again I love seeing the patterns favoured for this amazing little creek. As we all know - 80% of success on that stream comes back to preparation, and 20% seems to be the responsibility of the creek itself.


Yesterday, I was prepared - but she was an unruly little darlin' of a creek. Not quite ready yet folks...

Seeing the water level at the 3rd bridge meant seeking out this:
