Thanksgiving is done, deer season is in full swing, and Christmas is only a few weeks away! Read on to find out what’s been coming from the vice this past month.
It was fun to get to do some experimenting this month, trying some new patterns (Morlock’s Carp Breakfast, Maddin’s Southbound Trucker, McTage’s McLuvin, a crayfish/crab imitation) and some old standby’s (Walt’s Worm, Pheasant Tails, Hare’s Ears). All good stuff.
