Winter Time! Large flies, Large fish...

Winter time, the season I cherish the most for personal fishing! I simply haven't been out due to life, family, commitments etc. So sorry for not keeping up on the posts but this will all change soon, my favorite season has arrived. Yesterday I tied these up, not cause I need more flies, because I'm always into inventing & playing with new patterns... If one didn't then how would many of the popular flies fished today exist? At the end of the day it's just fun to approach fishing from different angles, try new things and challenge one self to sway from the norm! I think this is a great fly style much overlooked; It's durable, has great action in the water, gets you where you need to be and best of all has a little class too! A very well balanced design that I'll pride in fishing. Consider Arctic Fox / Temple Dog Hair wing patterns for your next outing, this stuff is active hair in great lengths when you have the source for it.
