Posts Tagged ‘TMC 102Y Hook’

This will be a continuation of the previous post. However, these will be some dry flies I have been wanting to complete before Spring in the Eastern Sierras and before Michael, Aimee (maybe Ally?) and I go to Montana this Summer. A lot of my ties in the next couple of months will be focused on that MT trip…
