Great little speck of nothing Tom. This is very nicely done. You’re right about these things being so tiny in the winter. In fact,on my waters, they are tiny in spring and summer too. I can still tie them, it’s seeing them on the water that’s getting harder and harder as I age. LOL.

Me too. It’s also threading that 8X tippet. When it’s cold and after the shakes from several cups of coffee; I might as well try pushing a rope through the eye. Lol
