My Sunday – Hunting & Tying

Posted On: February 23, 2015 BY Delamere

   Despite the snow, my Dad and I decided to go out and do some bird hunting.  We had this day on the calendar for a while and didn’t want to re-schedule.  It ended up being one of the most exciting hunts I’ve had.  Since the snow was a little frozen on the top, the birds couldn’t burrow like they would have liked and they did a lot of running and moving around.  We hunted Mike, who is a Shags Run setter and he did great.  Mike has a great nose, listens well and tracked the birds fantastically. After the cold morning, I came home and continued to stock my spring fly box with some bait-fish patterns for the Hybrid Bass.  It was a good day.  Enjoy the pictures!

If you look closely at this picture you can see the dog (on the right) and the bird half way up on the far left.

Walking in the snow was a work out for all of us

My Filson Strap vest has served me well this year

With Hybrid season approaching, it’s a lot of fun to try new fly patterns.  To make sure I have enough to last me for a while,  I’ve been tying a lot of Hollow Flies and think that they will do great this year. If you have any interest in learning to tie these, just give me a call!

This was one of my best flies from last year in Chartreuse and white, below is the same fly in a different color!

 Thanks for looking!
