Ice storms kept us indoors for three days so we used the time to sort our fly boxes.  Flies battered beyond use were discarded and replaced. We designed and tied a new streamer then took it to a nearby rain-swollen creek to see how it casts and how it behaved in the water.  It passed the tests so far but we’ll fish it in all seasons for at least a year before we present it on our website. Keep watching–we have several flies under development.
