Unless you are a hard-core cold weather angler, you?ve probably put away your fishing gear, pulled out the fly tying tools and started to re-stock your fly boxes. As you sit and tie, you drift back to the time when that same fly pattern in your vice was used to beckon a nice rainbow from its log sanctuary and trick him to rise for the take. The ensuing fight will live in your memory forever, the rod bent over, you manipulating it from side to side steering the fish away from obstacles, bowing to him when he jumped and finally, bringing it to the net then releasing him to fight another day. All that action from just one little fly that you tied. Now lets take it one step further, just think how satisfying it would have been if you caught that fish not only on the fly that you tied, but with your own personally hand crafted fly rod as well.
