So far the summer can be summed up in a couple of words
HUMID - lows of 76F and dew point 72F.
THUNDERSTORMS - enough so that the house shakes
LIGHTNING - oh yeah, it is popping all over
TORANDOES - three the other week, one just yesterday
FLASH FLOODS - my all time favorite. River runs high, starts to get to normal and then runs high again.
One of the best quotes to date is:
"This has been a horrible fishing season for me. The only seasons I've had worse than this one were ones I didn't go fishing at all. I have high hopes it will turn around for me in the fall, but maybe I'm being foolishly optimistic."
When I read the above I just couldn't help but laugh. It has been tough. Last time I was out I was wet wading at night and still sweating. The water seems too warm too early this summer. So.... I am hanging out in the ol' fly tying room doing up some wet flies. Here is a small sample of what I have been doing.
