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!
