Come Friday It's Fishing
On this southern sea of the prairie ocean today it seemed more like conditions one would find in Seattle. It was damp, soggy, and somewhat cool. Therefore I opted for a day away from the water and time on the vise.
However, come this Friday, it's going to be a'fishing with a couple of buddies. The plan is to hit the campground area then migrate our way up in the south wilderness.
Just thinking about it makes be salivate. Good fishing (hopefully), wonderful weather predicted, great fellowship, and a chance to finalize some things on the proposed One Fly Event at Blue River.
Today was a good day to also check for some after Christmas fly fishing specials. I didn't find a lot of great deals, but, did notice that Cabelas had a good offering of fly tying material at pretty good discounts.
The one item that stuck out was there clearance on tying vises. No, these are the creme de la creme of vises, but, they would make for good backup vises when we're in a pinch.
Check out Cabelas after Christmas fly fishing stuff.
Another good site for after Christmas stuff if Red Truck Fly Fishing.
