Just prior to my wedding Sept. 6, 2014 I packed all my materials and bench up so that our house would be ready for additional guests. Over a year later with a newly re-finished bedroom and I finally have a place for my bench again. It took a couple days to get things sorted out and organized but I’m in a good place now. I tied a couple larger simple leech patterns just to make sure I could get the job done and much like riding a bike I whip finished those flies on the first attempt. Felt good. I committed to a fly swap with some of the local guys in the area so I’ll be back at the bench a bit more soon. Good way to spend the sub-zero days.
