Just started back today. I like the woven flies you had shared with me. I may start looking into tying them. I think i may set a goal only to catch flies on paterns this year that come from my head or patterns that i have modified to my own variations. Something to try. It is tough though because of how effective the classic paterns are.
I have a few other goals that i would like to accomplish this year as well. I want to get better at tying micro nymphs and expand on my tying abilities.
