tying the Isonychia Nymph
More trip prep ~ tying of some Vinnie's Iso-nymphs. I tied some with and without wire heads pictured below. I'm starting to get excited about this trip in a couple of weeks even though it will be a short one, just two days. But hey, two days with your son fly fishing, what could be better. Scott is coming to the house this weekend and we will get all of our final plans made... Should be fun and we've got to have better weather than last time, right? So stay tuned...
