Earlier this month, I wrote a post entitled Where to Fish where I tried to describe the difficulty of all the fly fishing choices available to me. Today I’m headed to the Lower Deschutes to see if the Golden Stoneflies are still around in numbers to have a few fish looking up. And that means tying a few more flies for the trip. This time of year, I’m a “just in time” fly tyer.

I continue to tie Custom Flies for a few customers each week and while I’m completing their order, I tie a few more for myself. 

But what happens when I need a few flies for myself? I end up tying flies late at night or early in the morning for that day’s fly fishing trip. 

And that means a short post for today because I need to get 2 more Clarks Golden Stones completed before I head to the river this morning. That’s right…I’m a “just in time” fly tyer!
