  1. Rusty Spinner Hook: TMC 101, size 12 Tail: White microfibbets Body: Mahogony goose biot Hackle: Badger Wings: White antron yarn Notes: Thank you @SBPatt for suggesting this Craven pattern. Opted for a dubbing ball to split the microfibbets, just find that easier and I like the look. Fun to tie. Bring on those spring/summer evenings!
  2. Thanks Scott!!! I may have to try that one. Much appreciated.
  3. Wally Wing Spinner Hook: TMC 101, Size 12 Tail: Tan Microfibbits Abdomen: Stripped Badger Quill Thorax: Brown dubbing Wings: Mallard flank Notes: I am hoping to fish more evenings this season in hopes of catching of spinner falls, so I plan to tie a variety of other spinner patterns as well soon and experiment with what works best.
  4. Nice ones, folks!!! @zip, great looking bug.
  5. I have some of those plastic-y fake jungle cock feathers... they are pretty cheap looking and not really worth it, IMO. Tied a few flies with them and it immediately sparked a memory of when I was a little kid and my mom would buy some supermarket brand knockoff of my favorite cereal.
  6. Hillmap.com is also quite useful. It does a split screen and allows several different map options for each side. When you scroll or position on one side, it mirrors the motions on the other. Really handy for cross referencing satellite and topo.
  7. Alright, who else is getting it? With the days getting noticeably longer and the temperatures presently being somewhat mild, I can't help being antsy for opening day on April 1st! I've tied more flies this past winter than any other winter by far, looking forward to putting them to good use more regularly.
  8. Nice set-up! I'm a big fan of Darn Tough socks.
  9. Just your simple, run-of-the-mill Olive Woolly Bugger, size 6. Tail: Olive maribou, two strands of Krystalflash on each side. Body: Olive chenille, .20 pseudo lead underbody. Hackle: Olive grizzly Head: Brass conehead, 5mm
  10. All this bourbon talk has me excited that it's the Friday before a week off... lot's of tying (and bourbon) in the days ahead!
  11. @SBPatt and @zip - Great looking flies, gentlemen!
  12. @Moshup @upstatetrout @Sandan On point with the Catskill style flies, nice work guys!
  13. Glad to see this thread pop back up. It's one of my favorites on my site. Love seeing everyone else's set ups and I think many others do as well. Please post a pic if you haven't already!
