Flies and Ice Cream

I know it looks messy,
but don't worry, we've got a system.

Flies and ice cream. Tying flies that is. No flies in the ice cream as far as I know. 

In a little over a week I'm going to be heading into the Chesapeake Bay for a day of fishing with Captain Chris Newsome and my buddy Kevin. A fish in hand is long overdue, I'm hoping this trip will change that. 

Line em up, baby.

Kevin and I got together last night to tie some flies in preparation for the trip. 

Red over orange/yellow provides nice contrast
in the mirky waters of the Chesapeake. 

We got creative with out color combinations and made a mixture of clousers and deceivers and a hybrid of the two. 

Dry, epoxy, dry!

To be honest, I'm not concerned if these flies catch us any fish or not. It was just nice to enjoy a night on the porch with good company, music and some VERY chocolatey ice cream. 

mmmmmm..... Chocolate Ice Cream.
