A new fly for a new season

Over the course of this past winter season, I spent quite a bit of time expanding my fly box. Adding new designs and variations to the 'ole standbys. Over the course of the next few weeks, I will take you through some of my favorites and how to tie them. I have not figured out how to put videos on the internet, but a slide show will have to suffice for now. Here is a sample of what is to come!

4/0 Olive Pike Diver

3/0 Black Pike Diver

3/0 Wounded Warrior

Barry Reynolds 2/0 Chartruse Half and Half

Barry Reynolds 2/0 Red Half and Half

As the ice continues to reseed from the shores, winter storms continue to blast the front range on a weekly basis. It has been a week since Spinney opened up and there has not been any reports of pike in the shallows yet, as there is still relatively cold water temperature. Brilliant sunshine this morning has given way to light snow showers this afternoon. You have to love springtime in Colorado!

Woke up just now to find it snowing outside as well.Am starting to wonder whether I will ever get any piking done this spring.
Nice looking flies there. Particularly like the wounded warrior.

Thought I'd visit your blog and say how great your flies are as well. I've listed you in my list of links... if you are able to return the compliment that would be great. Regards, David
