Stillwater Sweeties

Stillwater Sweeties

Needless to say my vise has had dozens of #1 – 6/0 hooks ran through it over the winter. Since the ice is receding just about everywhere I started checking my stillwater boxes, a few were in need of filling so I decided to tie somethings on the smaller side… Nothing crazy just a few A. P. Emergers variants, some buggers and baitfish or two. In all honesty it was quite refreshing and helped me keep my tying skills tuned up.
