  1. I can relate, but am making another attempt at catching a trout/salmon each month consecutively for a year. I did it once a few years ago in southern Maine, where it's a bit warmer but most importantly there were more year round rivers to fish. Where I am now though, a bit colder and not nearly as many year round rivers that are close by. But still chugging along... for now. Four months to go, and they're the obviously the toughest. That all being said, I'm restocking my flies at a pretty decent rate now.
  2. Looks like fun, Mark! Still way too warm here in Maine to even think about ice fishing much, unfortunately. Did you guys have traps set up or did you just jig?
  3. @Moshup The one on the Chuck Caddis? Just searched for it and saw it. Very cool! Nice spiders as well.
  4. It's been awhile since I've read it, but I'm pretty sure it's nationwide.
  5. This one is pretty popular, but in case you haven't come across it, check it out: Handbook of Hatches - Dave Hughes
  6. Dark Spruce Streamer Variant, size 6 (9XL). Came across this recipe in the above book and it jumped out at me a bit. Combines elements of other streamers I've been having success with so I thought I would give it a whirl. Added copper wire ribbing for durability and a little extra weight. Botched the tail a bit in the above pic, but otherwise pretty happy.
  7. @chugbug27 Now there's a pretty nice arsenal!
  8. Happy Thanksgiving @Moshup and to all of you. Thankful for you friendly folks here on this site and the inspiration and help you provide. Hope you all have had a great holiday. -Jamie
  9. Cool idea, ejcox. Welcome to the site as well. Making it social media is an option to consider, specifically with the option to make your flies public with others, have followers, and follow others.
  10. @Bimini15 Great looking bunch there! Nice work.
  11. @niveker Those look fantastic. Nice job everyone.
  12. Found this article by April Vokey after my post. Summary: Highly questionable. https://www.themeateater.com/fish/fly/egg-sucking-leech
  13. Egg Sucking Leech... (do leeches really attack eggs regularly and do trout really think that's what they're looking at?) Hook: TMC 300, size 6, 6XL. Tail: Black marabou Body: Black chenille Underbody: .20 pseudo-lead Hackle: Black hen Head: Orange chenille
  14. @Pbass You nailed it with that stimulator. Nice one!
  15. Green Caddis Larva Hook: Mustad Size 14 Underbody: .15 pseudo-lead wire Body: Green dubbing Ribbing: Green thread Head: Rusty Brown dubbing.
  16. @flytire I am intrigued by that book. A quick Google search showed a picture of a few of the pages... is the whole book just recipes with no pictures? Regardless, I may order a used copy. Nice fly also, another fine example of the great work you do.
  17. @Mark Knapp Looks like a blast! Nice looking fish (and breakfast sandwiches). I have all of the gear, but for whatever reasons don't get out on the ice much. Perhaps this year though.
  18. @upnorthtier Nice ones! I noticed dozens in the boxes below, did you tie all of those?! Impressive! @Moshup Nice work... Of all of the classic wet patterns, the P&O has brought more to the net for me than any other.
  19. J Just a Woolly Bugger. Standard and not very exciting, but they're a lot of fun to tie and hey, trout love them! Size 6, Mustad 2X Heavy 5X Long Head: Gold bead Underbody: .30 pseudo-lead wire Tail: Olive marabou and two strands black Krystalflash doubled over. Body: Olive chenille Hackle: Grizzly olive
  20. Jelly Bean Scud (Fly Tyer mag, Aug. 2020). Used medium red wire, but realized after the fact that I indeed have small, which I think will look better. Next time. Fun one to tie. Hook: Size 14, curved caddis. Thread: 140, white Rib: Medium red wire. Legs: Tan ostrich hurl Shellback: UV resin
