  1. That's a great loking pattern. I just picked some of the smaller sculpin helmets last week and can't wait to try them out. What size B10S are you using?
  2. Do a google search on Beck's Super Bugger. I tie them in black, olive, tan and orange and have an absolute blast with that little fly. I typically tie it on a size 6 but go up to a size 4 and a larger set of eyes if I know that there will be current or deeper pools. I've caught smallies, trout and several species of panfish on it. Give it a try.
  3. I love articulated streamers and one of my favorite for smallies is my Mr. Nasty. It's about 5 inches long and the "S" swim action makes it a blast to fish. I heard Lefty once said "if it ain't chartreuse, it ain't no use" and I believe it. My top 5 smallies have all came on chartreuse baits.
  4. Here's one that I call the Freakshow. I've had a blast on this with smallies.
  5. Here's one of my favorite fall buggers for my area.
  6. I've tied these on a TMC 2499 in size 6 or 8. I like the gap between the foam better than the 200R's that I was using.
  7. I fished it last week adn dropped a size 10 zug bug off of it and had no problems with it floating. I used 2MM foam so it floats high. Here it is in yellow and green:
  8. Yes, I bought the size 6 cutters.
  9. I read this forum often and really appreciate the tying tips for us newbies. Here's a recent hopper tie of mine. Let me know what you think:
  10. I've bought several packs of material from him and never had a problem with delivery or communication. I don't think you can go wrong with the H2O twist or Congo Hair.
  11. I picked up a 2 RPM motor on eBay last week for $9.99 and free shipping.
  12. Big articulated streamers, for smallmouth, would be great.
  13. Throw in some Alabama football and you have all of the bases covered!
  14. I've tried the TMC 9495, in size 2 4 & 6, and like the straight eye along with the length of the hook but really want something that has a bigger gap. Any suggestions?
  15. I Appreciate the help. I picked up a tube of Fletch Tite on eBay and really like it.
