The itch was in full force again. I had accomplished all the things that needed to be done for the day and it was time for the line to go into the water. I had been looking at the swap flies I received. I was looking at some other flies also that I had not used or had not used for a long time. Time to see if they still worked or if it was time to strip the materials of and reuse the hooks. The flies went into a box, along with a few favorites. The favorites were insurance in case the flies did not work. Who wants to be skunked?
