  1. I'm not much of a saltwater fly fisher these days, but I have a buddy who loves to fish striped bass around bunker schools and he wants some bigger flies to try out next season. Big being 12-14", really large profile flies. I don't have much experience tying in these sizes. I've browsed around, but was hoping that some of you may have some pictures to share for inspiration or recommendations for materials that will remain castable. Yak, and some of the synthetic alternatives seem to be most commonly used from what I can tell. I've been reading about Mark Sedotti's mass-balanced flies, and how adding a certain amount of extra weight (in the form of lead wire) will actually improve castability significantly, even with flies up to 20". Has anyone ever experimented with Sedotti's Slammer style flies tied this way? Thanks in advance. This is not a style of tying I know much about, so I'm just hoping to get a little inspiration and maybe recommendations on patterns from the forum. Would love to see some bunker fly pics if anyone here ties big ones! Anything helps!
  2. Berry flies, eggs, big chartreuse terrestrials, tiny chartreuse woolly buggers/leeches. Those have always worked for me.
  3. Trout, bass, perch, crappie, sunfish, carp, pickerel, shiners! The mop owns them all!
  4. Alright, to fill everyone in, it seems like my package must have gotten lost somewhere simce it was shipped a while back. I have another in the mail with a bunch of extras for everyone. Very sorry for holding this up. Have a good Easter
  5. Add147, sent you a PM. Please let me know when you get a chance. Thank you
  6. Yep, I did one last year and we got a great selection. I'm in for this one for sure!
  7. One of the best flies ever created.
  8. Shoot, very sorry about that. They are in the mail now, should be a couple day. My sincerest apologies again
  9. Address please, I'll have mine tied up soon. Will either do a bass worm fly or some sort of big dry with an extended mop body.
  10. I would imagine the back sags down in the water with the head floating high? That's actually how I prefer my topwater to look, something about the tail slowly hanging down after a twitch seems to really trigger strikes. Nice pattern, I'm gonna have to tie some!
  11. Did mine ever show up? They should have arrived by now
  12. This was some sort of Tyers Dungeon dubbing. I'll get back on the name. Not the buggiest Ive used per se, but it has micro rubber strands and such in it that I think it makes for a good caddis. I'll be trying it on caddis nymphs next.
  13. Mine are in the mail as well. Should be there soon. I went with a balloon caddis, nice and high floating and tested out a new really buggy dubbing for the body. Hope everyone likes them.
