Spring is Just Around the Corner

Hello everyone. It's been a while since I've been online, but I'm finally settled in my new home and most importantly, hooked back up to the internet. It's been just under a month since I wrote and the weather is dramatically different from my last post. The snow around the Chicagoland is just about melted away after a record setting month of February and that means the water levels are up. I can't wait to hit up some local waters with some big nasty flies for post spawn pike and muskie in the next month or so. First order of business now that the boxes are all unpacked and the girlfriend is finally happy with how everything looks will to get back behind the vise and start tying some flies again. I would also like to finish Fool's Paradise by John Gierach which I was enjoying before life got put on hold for a little bit. I'm surprised and in shock by the amount of traffic this blog is getting lately. It's an honor to have someone show interest in just an average Joe's writings. Hopefully by the end of the weekend I'll have some flies to talk about and maybe even a quick local trip if the weather permits. Until next time...
