The season cometh…

By now, I have usually reminded my fellow fly fishers/fly tiers that it is time to inventory the fly boxes and gear in anticipation of the coming Trout season. If you fish during the Fall/Winter, as I sometimes do, your gear can be much divided mess of Steelhead, Salmon and Trout equipment/tools etc. I usually have to cull out the essentials for Trout fishing and then take an inventory of all my fly boxes to see what needs to be tied (assuming you tie your own) or purchased. That will also necessitate an inventory of your fly tying materials that you may have packed away last Summer/Fall.  Find that old checklist and get started. If you don’t, you will be scrambling when that invite comes.

An evening hatch of midges (chironomids) excited the feeding birds and trout (and the fly fishers)…

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
