|Junco in the snow|
We are sitting under a blanket of new snow and the thermometer is hovering around 10F. I enjoy mornings like these; watching the birds at the feeders, some hot coffee, and some reading. Then it's out in the snow to clear off the driveway and sidewalks. I will probably spend the afternoon doing a few odd jobs around the house and maybe some winter tying.
Here are a few shots of the birds at the feeders this morning...

I will be tying more large articulated streamers this winter for fishing next year. Some late fall success with these meaty offerings has me wanting to fish these more in the coming year. Shown below is a super-sized version of Kelly Gallop's barely legal that should draw some attention! I also hope to tie a few classic wets as well in the coming months.
