Preparing for the thaw
We got about an inch of snow last night. That's the 2nd time in two days. This really needs to end. It's getting old. The good news is that spring is right around the corner, and the big thaw will be starting shortly. That means high fast water and big patterns.
I took some time to knock out some zonker slumpbusters in a variety of colors to be prepared for it.
All were tied on size 6 Mustad streamer hooks, regular zonker strips, tungsten cone head beads, UTC medium copper wire, Lagurtun French Mini-Flat braid for the body, and have a .015 leaded underbody. They are paperweights for sure.
In other news, I had an interesting weekend. I found myself rather drunk, and getting a tour of the Yards Brewery at 10pm on Saturday night. Being a huge fan of the brew, I was in heaven. I even got to try different types of malt. But when we got to the bottling section, I felt like I was in an episode of Laverne and Shirley.
