Finishing up the deer hair flies I stacked and spun yesterday. (I like the glues to set up before trimming and adding legs). First attempt at mixing hair colors in the stacker for the collar and the back spot (red, blue and green, same colors as the tail flashes) and the nose (black and white, the main color scheme overall). A lot in a little fly! Meant to be fished on a sink tip, like a Zoo Cougar or Dahlberg Diver. Action more like a Zoo Cougar. The stippling is neat, but it adds time to an already lengthy tie. Good thing I'm tying only for myself and friends! ☺ (I carry a big Plano box full of deer hair bugs- I'm constantly giving them away to people I meet who flyfish. ☺ If you've flyfished with me in the past year, you have a few flies I've tied). #ncangler #bass #bassfishing #breamfishing #lakelife #uwharries #deerhair #bassbug #ncflyfishing #stcroixrods #fish #fishing #deerhairbassbug #ncmountains #flyfishing #flytying #flytyingjunkie #trout #troutfishing #streamers #bassstreamer #troutstreamer

So excited for snow (and spending a day in with my beautiful wife!) that I couldn't sleep. (She can, though! ☺☺). First tie of the morning in progress. The tail is from a fly I had already tied and trimmed, a little too zealously...I cut through the thread!!! Rat turds!!!! Cut off the body/head and stacked a new front section. Oh well...☺☺☺ #ncangler #bass #bassfishing #breamfishing #lakelife #uwharries #deerhair #bassbug #ncflyfishing #stcroixrods #fish #fishing #deerhairbassbug #ncmountains #flyfishing #flytying #flytyingjunkie #trout #troutfishing #streamers #bassstreamers

1 more for today, in a little more natural of a color scheme. New hair colors from Carolina Mountain Sports in downtown Statesville. Spinning deer hair for the back and belly hair for the belly. Small enough for a lighter rod, too.

Restless this morning. No deer hair to see here! No-name fly, just messing around. Pre-dawn tying session, working up the gumption to go fishing in the Mooresville hot hole this morning with the Red-X crew from Ncangler.com. Picking up the new Sage Bass Fly rod today too...anticipation!!! #ncangler #bass #bassfishing #breamfishing #lakelife #uwharries #bassbug #bassstreamers #furandfeathers #flyfishing #flytying #flytyingjunkie #ncflyfishing #stcroixrods #fish #fishing

2 flies a day doesn't bring springtime any closer, just means you have more flies in the box when it does finally arrive! ☺ After-dinner fly; another muddler-headed, munch minnow, flux capacitor thingy with legs. #ncangler #bass #bassfishing #breamfishing #lakelife #uwharries #deerhair #bassbug #ncflyfishing #stcroixrods #fish #fishing #deerhairbassbug #flyfishing #flytying #flytyingjunkie #bassonthefly #streamers #bassstreamers

A fly a day brings springtime a day closer! ☺ Today's after-work, before-dinner tie is a kind of muddler headed, munch-minnow-like, flux capacitor thingy with legs. (I like them with legs! ☺). Had to sneak that deer hair in there somehow!

Two very different views of the Badin Shores pond. A flycaster' s dream when it's not covered in 1 inch of ice! No trees or backcast obstructions, loads of little wolf pack Largemouth bass and a couple really nice bucketmouths that have a penchant for snacking on bluegill, which are also plentiful. Part casting practice pond, part fly dynamics laboratory, part catch and release fishing hole, all fun. ☺ #ncangler #bass #bassfishing #breamfishing #lakelife #uwharries #deerhair #bassbug #ncflyfishing #stcroixrods #fish #fishing #deerhairbassbug #ncmountains

Not to often do I post flies destined for my fly box, trimmed a little much out when making the cup. Some @solarez_products saved it. It'll fish though. Size 1 predator @ahrexhooks #surfaceseducer eyes by @flymenfishingco The tail is Ep fibers from @harelinedubbin Deerhair is from @rusuperfly Once again the cork is from a @greygoose bottle lol ... Come see me tie at the @heartlandflyfishingfestival Jan 20-21 #bas#bassbug> #bassbug #bassbugging #classicpopper #flyfishing #frequentflytyer

Dubbed a big old fat head on this green stimulator. My personal favorite searching pattern for wild North Carolina trout in the early springtime. Excellent high floater in our freestone streams that'll float well even with a tungsten headed nymph hanging below. Not bad for the bass and bream here on Badin, either. ☺ Definitely daydreaming of warmer days, riots of green, and sunshine! ⛄🌬☃️ #ncangler #bass #bassfishing #breamfishing #lakelife #uwharries #deerhair #bassbug #ncf#ncflyfishing #fish #fishing #flyfishing #flytying #flytyingjunkie #ncflyfishing

At least the soundtrack changed...supposed to warm up above freezing tomorrow for the first time since Christmas! This does not happen in North Carolina's piedmont!

Just a few of my favorite deer hair ties from my first year of tying. (10 months and counting). I doubt I'll ever fish with the one in the center- I like it too much to lose!

With apologies to Peter Benchley..."we're gonna need a bigger reel!"...thanks to Papa, Mama, and Brother Greg Swanner, I have a new reel! Just waiting on a rod to put it on. New original Sage 330 grain Bass rod on the way that I got for a steal! ☺ Tournament legal, big enough to handle Lake Fork and light saltwater action...I've heard and read nothing but good about these reels and the coming rod. I'll let you know how how I feel later. ☺ New arrows in the water quiver.

Looking through the window at the White River Fly Shop at Bass Pro in Concord, NC...topo maps spread out on the table, tying vise in use, bankers lamps lighting the scene, all that's missing is a tumbler of a good spirit to sip and maybe a pipe for the smokers- and just about all the material you could need on the racks behind you.

My 2 favorite Dahlberg divers so far. Both have been fished and blooded- other than a recoat of belly varnish, they're holding up well. ☺ #ncangler #bass #bassfishing #breamfishing #lakelife #uwharries #deerhair #bassbug #ncflyfishing #stcroixrods #fish #fishing #deerhairbassbug #ncmountains

The sun rises on the first day of 2018 in the Uwharries. View from the NC Hwy 49 overlook at the Yadkin River/Tuckertown Reservoir bridge. Wintering grounds for black-winged seagulls.

First fly of the New Year is a new tie for me- Zoo Cougar on a too-short streamer hook and fat grizzly hackle in place of the mallard flank feather.
