Looks like it is time to take the gear out of the car and head to the tying vice. Then again I hear the streams in Iowa are open all winter. Hmm... Oh well, early season is just around the corner.
In the spirit of the holiday season - thought you might want to check out these sites:
Casting 4 a Cure: An organization dedicated to raise money to help fight Rett Syndrome. While normally adverse to any type of tournament fly fishing. These guys have the right idea.
Coastal Conservation Association: An organization made up of saltwater anglers who make up 17 state chapters dedicated to protecting coastal waters.
Tight lines and enjoy the season,
