I sat down to my tying desk today and had a sense of relief. I can put away the flashabou and 2.5" spinner shanks. I can store the size 2/0 salmon hooks. It is time to break out the peacock hurl, size 6 Gami hooks, and 8/0 thread. It is time to start tying summer flies. The Cowlitz is starting to come around. Take a look at a couple of the summer patterns I like on this great river.
