This week has been a living nightmare at work with removing all snow from the streets and add some sand to prevent some slippery,haven´t been much more than working and sleeping. Well some tying but just a couple of flies and like every year it seems to be kind of panic to have enough tubes before springtime and a long awaited season opener. As I wrote in my last post I waited for a parcel to arrive from Poland and To be honest I was a little bit suspicious of the whole case but parcel arrived and the material was good quality and now I have many different colors in stock of this wonderful material.

Everyone who knows me can surely say that two words,me and systematic doesn´t fit in same sentence.All of you who read this blog regularly has probably noticed that I now and then has started with different kind of cleaning or organization of my tying corner but always failed because of different reasons. Today I started to tie a fly but after I found it almost impossible to find anything from my table I suddenly just had enough. Jumped into my car and drove to a store and bought me some stuff that I thought I could use in Mission tying corner. Not much to tell about,it took me 11 hours to clean up all the mess that I started a long time ago. Here is some photos: First some pics from were I started:

Has been a quiet moment at work so I have had time to practice my casting skills and of course do some tying too.As I told you in my last post I found a nice pattern to tie (Tobbe Hedins fly)but the last one failed totally.My first mistake was that I forgot to add a second hackle (don´t even ask how I managed to do that :)). My second mistake was the head of the fly.I know that My Muddler heads could be good looking by some practicing but it feels a bit stupid to do a lot of work and spend a lot of material first and then ruin the whole fly with a head that´s look like doggy doo. I promised some photos too and here they are including THE head :)

So now our thin snow blanket has turned to 60 cm thick and has covered whole Finland.We had a very heavy snowfall here the other day witch messed up the traffic here in southern parts of Finland,over 300 accidents in one day and I´m talkin about just around Helsinki. But now it´s seem to be time for the other mess with winter,it´s cold,and not just cold,it´s COLD !!! and while I was at work this Sunday morning I tried to figure out What do I hate most in winter,the cold or the snowfalls...Don´t know,both of them is not very high on my wishlist anyway.-36 degrees Celsius 04.00 AM at home and 8.35 AM -35 in Helsinki when I went home.
