Salar Countdown

I leave for Moncton, NB on Wednesday July 23. A few short days away.

I am going with Bob a friend from the concrete industry. From river and weather reports, we may have river conditions that we could hardly have hoped for. Rain has been constant on the Miramichi Region, and it appears that truly hot weather has not yet come. We will fish from Country Haven Lodge for 3 days and should get to fish the run in front of Ted Williams old place.

Below are some flies I have tied up for the trip.

While the majority of these flies should be somewhat familiar to you the reader, and I will be lucky if there is even one, The last fly is a new design for me called "The Merry Mink" from a poem in the the book "River" by Ted Hughes.
