From Claudius Aelianus

We can start the new year with a bit from the start of fly fishing. Aelianus was known as "The Sophist" and was a teacher of rhetoric in Rome from ~170-230 AD. Among other contributions, he gave us the first recipe in fly tying: They wrap the hook in scarlet wool, and to the wool they attach two feathers that grow beneath a cock's wattles and are the color of wax. He gives no indication as to how the pattern was tied, but most people believe this ancient fly was a pink squirrel (kidding man). [preceding text adapted from Darrel Martin]

Happy New Year sukkas. Winter Trout season is here, and thus - first decent day, I'll be hunting for swirls-on-midges in some of the more-better parts of our world.

Friday Night Lights is tonight - meaning I'll turn on my shop light and do up some nymphy looking stuff in my cold ass basement.

You could drink something strong to warm you up but not too much or your proportions may get messed up. Haha. Let me know a day or two in advance if your going to try and hit anything in my county.
