Yesterday was a gorgeous day. Mid 60's, light breeze. But my day was already spoken for with many activities that had nothing to do with fishing. I had about an hour, and since i've stream lined my tying kit to a very simple and portable setup, I can get things going quickly. So I setup...outside.
I was just messing around with a few things, and not getting in a hurry
about much. It was beautiful out there. Short sleeves and natural light.
(natural light as in the sun, not the beer).
I had all my materials to start working on some spinning clousers I
have been wanting to try and spent a ton of the time getting those itty
bitty teeny weeny #12 crane swivels onto the #1 split rings. BTW, these split ring pliers
are awesome. I got about two dozen ready to go with blades attached.
Then I realize that my already narrow window to tie is closing fast. I
tied a clouser real fast as a refresher before I started the spinners.
Then about the time I got my 60 degree hook in the vise, my wife got
home with all the groceries in the car...and I knew at that point, my
window to tie has closed. I had a ton of prior obligations to do and had
to call it a day for tying. But it was still fun...while it lasted. At
least I was able to get outside and think about fishing.
