It's getting closer

I've now tied 70 woolly buggers this winter.  I still have about 40 more to tie.

Then, it's on to tying Juju Baetis flies in very small sizes.  I had to buy some UV-cured resins and a UV light to tie those flies.

I will get my license shortly.

I've ordered a large number of flies from The Catch and the Hatch in CO.  I'm expecting them shortly.

I ordered a new ceramic bobbin and some lead wire from Cabela's last week for my tying.

I need a couple new fly boxes.

My entry to the Otter Creek Classic is done.  I have a hotel room for the weekend and 2 tickets to the Fly Fishing Film Tour.

I think I'm going to go see the Hank Patterson movie in 2 weeks.

I have 2 more weekends of teaching skiing, but it's getting close.

It was close to 50F yesterday, but a business trip killed any chance of actually fishing.

I saw a post on Facebook from a guy who landed a rainbow here in VT this week.

It's getting close.

I'm so excited.

I still really, really want to buy a float boat to use in the White, the Winooski and the Connecticut.  I will probably still be debating this idea a month from now.

I'm going to PA in 2 weeks, and I'm trying to figure out how to sneak in a bit of fishing time.

It's apparently an obsession.
