Mother nature playing mind games with us impatient anglers waiting for some open waters.
It has been a pain when todays +4 degrees has changed to tomorrows -15 degrees,also the snow has almost melted only to see that next day we got 25 cm again but nothing to do except waiting and try to find something to do before D-Day which getting closer and closer.
For me it has been fly tying and trying out new materials which I have been lucky to get from Fly-Dressing for test-tying
Got my boxes pretty well filled and I'm really excited for the forthcoming season.
Have had some fun times behind my vise....
The fly above Is a new pattern for me,saw it on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qv423opZhNo&t=7897s
But couldn't tie a similar because I don't got all materials so I had to improvise a bit,came out good enough in my opinion it's a small Fly,much smaller that I use to tie,only 13 cm long and with a XL sized Dragon tail it's just about 20 cm.Tied on a Vision/Partridge Big mama 4/0 hook and a 35 mm long shank.
On Niklaus tie he added Predator fiber as the head but I don't got that stuff so I just tied with Rainy's craft fur instead.
Think I need to tie couple more of these.
Just adding these pics makes me wanna go fishing so badly but while waiting go and check out this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHsbQgqARWE&feature=push-u&attr_tag=HoAvFWzG-HA-6
