Opener is upon us. Some have been tucked away for the past few months into the corners our loved ones allow us to have, tying flies and filling up our boxes. Preparing for that first bit of sunlight to peak over the tops of the coulee region and on to the water that has haunted our thoughts and imaginations all winter. The waters have been rejuvenated with these weird Leap Day rains and our quarry has been left to rest for the past five cold, untouchable months. Good luck to all my friends and as you lean over your bumper Saturday morning to tie your boots grunting from slightly hungover stomach you have compressed don't forget to pinch your barbs and take lots of pictures.
