Sadly, we have moved into the hardwater season around here.  For some that still means fishing but I haven’t figured out how you manage to drift a dry fly in an eight inch hole in the ice and bobbing a nymph or streamer up and down the water column doesn’t seem too interesting either.

So that means it is fly tying season.  And there is enough of that to do.  Am I the only one who always seems to be missing one of the materials in the recipe?

Ah well, nature’s entertainment is still not too far off.  Here are a couple photos from our backyard bird feeder.  Potential tying material – just kidding!

There are lots of blue jays these days and the turkeys make a regular appearance a couple times a day.  The other birds give them a wide birth when they are scratching around.
