You could say that I've had a bit of a hiatus from my blog. It wasn't really what I had intended, however they way things have worked out over the last few months I haven't much choice due to a number of circumstances. Nevertheless things appear to have settled back to normal here at Dabbler HQ, with just a few things to be put back in place. Its a new year and a new start with a couple of big trips planned. Therefore I look forward to start turning my thoughts to flyfishing and flytying in the coming weeks and months and once again get focused on what I enjoy most. Today! at long last I managed to get the vice dusted down and put together some feather, fur and tinsel. I had Highland Lochs in mind when I tied these this afternoon.
