Still warm

The water is still more suitable for swimming than for fishing.

The summer is not over yet. It is still so hot both in the air and in the water that it is hard to believe that it was ever winter.

But soon the temperature will start falling and the water will be worth visiting with a rod and line again. I am looking forwards to that.

Interesting tools

Mike Hogue has stuff on the way

Mike Hogue of Badger Creek Fly Tying announced in his recent newsletter that he is developing a new set of fly tying tools in stainless steel and what have you. I have already mailed him to inquire about a set to review on GFF. I am very much into great tools, and will try to get Mike to borrow us a set to test. Right now "...the early prototypes are in." he writes, and continues "I will have solide stainless hook bowls, brass stackers, stainless hair packers. These are exclusive tools and will be available only at a limited number of places. Eventually, I hope to have an entire line made to my specs."

Sounds interesting, huh?
