Temperature Extremes & Fishing

Remember when your fingers were aching, then numb? The East wind cut through the layers. The ice formed in the guides. You actually, for a moment, wondered ‘how much longer’. (Upfront: My Son, Tony)

Come January, will you remember today’s temp?

Oracle Wet Fly (Almost as Hot as an Adrienne Comeau Beer Can Holder)

adrienne Yes, I know. There is little in the way of fly design that can equal the simplistic, single syllable utterances re the Adrienne Comeau Budweiser Beer Can Holder. Normally, I would not even attempt to suggest that much short of the take could equal Adrienne’s pull. But, tonight I almost found a match. Not quite, but for awhile, until I looked at the pic again, I thought I was close.

The Oracle Wet Fly is just plain seductive and inviting. It has all the stuff in the right places and well it makes you pause for a longer look. Not the ACBBCH, but close.

This Oracle Wet has a body constructed from Root Beer Krystal flash. It still picks up multiple colors when wrapped.
