  1. Looking great. Don't forget to do some in obnoxious colors too. I had one I made similar to yours with loads of silver flashabou-like dubbing. The large mouth would not leave it alone. Nothing like the others artists are posting, but this is my confidence fly. I fish it like a streamer more often than not. Trout and panfish love it. 2 rubber legs, peacock herl and hen hackle Never thought to use leg material for the tail to add to the flys movement ....what a epiphany.I will need to include some of these in my box for my next outing.

    A beefier option would be to bore a hole thru the entire length of the handle. Then attach both parts with a 3/8” threaded rod. Also a counterbore at the inside net surface, and at the oak extension would provide a way to conceal the lock washer and nut. Wood putty and a finish coat would complete the job.
  3. First class tying Norm, and praying you have a speedy recovery.

    Nice work and rugged design.
  5. As a confidence booster tie two flies one with uv and one without. Apply floatant as you normally would. Put them both in a pan of water. Observe them at rest. Now agitate the water with a spoon and see if their is a difference.

    Darrell, where do you buy silicone slit strips?
  7. I'm not sure what the third one is used for but it looks like a great anti-intruder knife.
  8. Nice one Sean, that should work well anywhere there are crayfish.
  9. See attached Hatch chart. I find them to be pretty accurate as they usually follow yearly temperature changes. That said adjust accordingly if temps lead or lag the average. http://www.perfectflystore.com/hcsmokymtns.html FYI: BWO should def be on the list no matter what.
  10. Wow this tip makes it so much easier & faster....worth it's weight in Gold.
