Thinking warm thoughts.

by Brian Zinger on February 27, 2016

There were only 3 of us at the club meeting this past Wednesday, mostly due to the screwy weather we continue to get this winter.  Our thoughts were of warmer times when caddis are hatching and bass and pike are really getting aggressive on the surface.

It was a learning night for sure. None of us profess to being great at spinning deer hair. For Matt, it was his 1st time and just like with anything as you practice and get the feel for tension and size of the clump,  all of our skills got better.  Matt and I twisted up some Goddard caddis and Tim shared his method of spinning hair by putting together some top water bass and pike flies.
