Welcome back Matt, did you bring spring with you?

Thanks guys! I've been tying ever since early January. Probably tied near 200 dries, traditional nymphs, and Euro nymphs. I rarely nymph fish for resident trout but do nymph for steelhead. I tied the Euro nymphs to add something new to my fly boxes.

Always good 2 hear from you, Matt!


P.S. Starting to thaw here in Michigan...
No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

I thought you had fallen in at your cabin and floated down the Delaware to the sea?! 🤣

I stopped on my way to fish for Stripers last September along the Delaware Water Gap on the PA New Jersey border and I swear I thought I saw you float by. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Fished a week in Long Island Sound. Some in my club had luck but my hookups were few and short lived. My wife caught up with me in Mystic at the end of that week and we visited Newport and Martha’s Vineyard and drove up to Maine and stayed at a friends cabin for a week. Nice, tiring, trip.

Hope all is well with you.
