Rained Out

After two solid days of rain the streams are a wash. I decided to take advantage of the break and put in some time tying. It's a bit overdue- I've been donating flies to the stream beds for about a month now and stocks are dwindling.

I tied a dozen size 16 pheasant tails, which is about as small as I can get with any kind of quality control. Also some Caddis nymphs with some cool new black tungsten beads. Also tried a new pattern- a sulphur emerger. I think this could be a real producer in the coming weeks- especially as a dropper in the film. There's only one way to find out, but it looks like a few more days before the flows get back to normal.
