  1. some low fat minnows, have been on quite the carp kick this afternoon ill have to get some pictures of them soon!
  2. right handed in almost everything, volleyball,baseball,golf,writing,eating.. everthing except i fish with baitcasters left handed as thats how i learned and tying left handed from watching right handed people tie from the front then trying to replicate it when i started
  3. Something similar to a extra wide cheech leech, switched some stuff up though
  4. usually do my best with blacks with hints of red and orange or very dark greens with black
  5. mike, the movement out of them is awesome being all rabbit fur, gets a nice tapered profile while being stripped in, but flares up on the pauses with a slow sink to it definitely gonna have to start tying more of them in different sizes and colours
  6. Still tying up a bunch of these guys after my mistake with the "alternate" thread figured I could put one up on here
  7. Fooling around with some epoxy heads, never really done them and gotta say i really like em Rabbit minnow Red sided marabou minnow and a buck tail minnow
  8. was on my phone, it didnt show any of the topics since i was last on oops,
  9. Experimenting with some new styles of flies, made up a carp worm and some kind of shrimp I figured I could easily use for bass
  10. off to a good start, most of my flyfishing is for smallmouths up here in manitoba and that would definitely catch a fish. some flies i could recommend would be some foam gurglers, simple to tie and deadly in shallow water just need some chenile, rubber legs, foam and some kind of material for the tail just expiriment for your first couple flies, picture something and try and create it, it will never look like the plan but its a way of picking up new techniques and learning them on a fly with no set finished look so you are not comparing yourself. and always fish your flies! youd be suprised what a bronzeback will hit sometimes and its a great confidence booster! best of luck!
  11. a nice simple clouser is a good one and an effective fly almost anywhere! just make sure to keep the hair sparse
  12. same things that were said, bit more volume in the tail to try and surround the flash and start the chenille a bit farther back other then that it will definitely catch a fish!
  13. not sure whether mine would be a white bass on a bucktail streamer or a smallmouth on a dubbed body minnow pattern i madeup, either way it was just this spring
  14. Never forget the fish are the only critic that matters. I like the rubber band grub. Have you tried any with only the top coated to save that chewy grubby texture in the bottom? ill have to give that a try! i have done some with a very soft rubbery coating but cant get it to finish nice and clear and yes the fish are the critique but we are the ones who choose what to show to the fish and usually its only what we think is good enough
  15. my summer was all fishing and working and my vise got packed away, these definitely werent the firsts of each though haha
