For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form

This weekends snow event allowed me to sit at the desk and tie up a few flies. Several of those flies were feather wing streamers. These flies can be very relaxing to tie. It can be quite enjoyable just selecting the materials being used. Lavender "Lace" may have the look of an attractor pattern, but it's colors and shape can represent a smelt when fished at various depths as well as the clarity of the water where fished.
