I last tied flies in October of 2018. After all of the medical experiences I have gone through since May of 2019, there just has not been a lot of motivation to begin again…well, that’s over…
Back at the vise…
A few items I picked up at Bob Marriott’s Fly Fishing Store on 4.16.2021. Most of what I had on my list was not in stock. I suspect it’s sitting in cargo containers somewhere off-shore West of Long Beach, CA… if at all…😓

…setting up today to fill a box with some patterns Michael and I will use when both of us have received our Covid 19 vaccinations. I am getting mine in February and Michael has to wait awhile longer…
HOT VACS – the thread version a BRF pattern…
HOT VAC – TMC 2488H, #16…
MONTANA BULLET – TMC 2499SP-BL, #16…
UV OLIVE / PEACOCK – Dohiku HDJ, #18…
B-UV PEACOCK ZEBRA PUPA – TMC 2499SP -BL, #16 – #18…
PEARL / INSECT GREEN FLOSS MIDGE – Firehole 637, # 18- #20…
WHITE HEADED MIDGE (Gray) – Freeman/Variant, Daiichi 1130,#18-#22…
So this is a beginning. I will do a dozen of each pattern with individual, group and materials used – as I have always done…
