March came in like a Lion and is going out like a Snow Leopard! Still four feet in my front yard and the piles alongside my driveway are pushing eight feet! I’m thinking a late spring with flooding.

The weekend itinerary was to shovel driveway, grab a beer and head on down to the tying bench. Plan is to try to head south mid-week so I thought I’d quickly throw up this tie of the Superintendent Sam Steele Blue Leech Fly Pattern just in case I get trapped in the Pine Pass. 😉
