Hello there, it’s been awhile! Here’s what’s been coming “From the Vice” over the past few months – it’s not been a whole lot because of life happening (and a great new job beginning!).
Last week was a bit heavy on the video end of things, so we’ve tried to balance it out more this week. We have a few articles, the newest issue of S.C.O.F. magazine, and some videos for you to enjoy. Grab your cup of coffee, get comfortable, and dig in!
Bugs are popping, and I hope you have some time to get out on the water this weekend. Until then, you can fish vicariously through these articles and patterns that we have for you. Just pour yourself a coffee!
By the way, it’s International Star Wars day: May the Fourth be with you.
March came in like a lion, and isn’t quite going out like a lamb. Maybe “out like a lion cub” is more appropriate? Anyway, it was a fun month at the vice to be tying up some new and old patterns for the boxes. Read on!
After the long trudge of January, February always seems to move pretty quickly. The deer hair experiments that I had set out to do didn’t quite happen, but I did have some time to sit down at the vice and tie up some experimental patterns as well as necessary ones to fill the box.
January always feels long. It was a good start to the new year, and there were some new experimentations coming off the vice. One of the big things was working with bucktail for the first time, which ended up being a lot of fun and a material that I want to use more and more. It’s also been a good time to start restocking the standard nymph and dry fly boxes as well.
Getting stuck with what to tie this winter? Working on a specific style of fly or tying technique? Enter the Fly Tying Video Feature, where we hope to help you get those creative juices flowing.
Maybe you’re stuck in a rut on what to be tying this winter: enter the Fly Tying Video Feature. Throughout the winter we’re going to be featuring flies for all occasions (sometimes it will be imitations of a specific fish/insect, other times it will be general imitations of a category). The goal is doing 1-2 of these posts per week for your viewing pleasure and to help get the juices flowing at the vice!
