Winter shank flies - for a trip that never was

Like everyone, the end of the winter season wasn't meant to be... and feels like a year ago.
Within 2 days of departure, I canceled my yearly winter trip.
Just digging through the flies that have to wait for next year

if you care to see the process and ramblings

I agree with Mike. I would fish the last one every day, all day.
