Flies and Ice Cream

I know it looks messy,
but don’t worry, we’ve got a system.
Flies and ice cream. Tying flies that is. No flies in the ice cream as far as I know. 
In a little over a week I’m going to be heading into the Chesapeake Bay for a day of fishing with Captain Chris Newsome and my buddy Kevin. A fish in hand is long overdue, I’m hoping this trip will change that. 
Line em up, baby.
Kevin and I got together last night to tie some flies in preparation for the trip. 
Red over orange/yellow provides nice contrast
in the mirky waters of the Chesapeake. 
We got creative with out color combinations and made a mixture of clousers and deceivers and a hybrid of the two. 
Dry, epoxy, dry!
To be honest, I’m not concerned if these flies catch us any fish or not. It was just nice to enjoy a night on the porch with good company, music and some VERY chocolatey ice cream. 

mmmmmm….. Chocolate Ice Cream.
