  1. A few 22's and 24's getting ready for the San Juan. Chocolate foam emergers a variant or two and a chocolate mercury RS2
  2. Looks great!👍🏻👍🏻😃 Thanks. I like your Klinkhammer rendition

    Fish Pictures

    Two are from the "Dream Stream" the third from Deckers. Two different stretches of the South Platte. Gotta say I'm blessed to have such good fishing so close
  4. Sparkle yarn emerger. Holding the phone horizontally did it
  5. Looks really good. I like the uv/epoxy case
  6. Did rotating the phone to take pics not work for the pics to show properly? Oops, my bad I totally forgot about that. I'll try again later tonight.
  7. You bet. my pleasure. The "variations" are half prince/half 20 incher, more or less
  8. For what it's worth you have my vote
  9. So much inspiration from all of you.
  10. My $.02. i agree with McFly. 5-6x flouro. Nothing bigger than 22. 24's and 26's mostly. You can fish two flies and the hooks have to be barbless. I've had good luck fishing under a clear small Air-Lock indicator. (http://bozemanangler.com/montana-fly-fishing-blog/posts/137/Product-Review-Air-Lock-Strike-Indicators/). The screw top makes it really convenient to adjust for depth. When the fish are rising to emergers fishing those little midges like you would a dry/emerger has been a great tactic for me. The fly is in under the meniscus, if a fish "rises" where you think your fly is set the hook. With the tiny hooks the set doesn't need to be very hard, just tighten up on the line. If you missed the fish let your drift continue. I'ma convert to Trout Hunter flouro. IMHO it's head and shoulders better than Rio, etc.
  11. I tied up a few last night, I'll take pics and post 'em after work. Curved hook. Both with and with out a bead, tailed and tailless. No pink ribbing, I used red wire. I think they look really fishy. Thanks again Lucian
  12. Chugbug27, Bimini15, Thanks for the 411. I'll give your suggestions a try tonight.
  13. Are you taking them on a phone oriented vertically? Yes, I am. Seems like you have the solution. What is it?
  14. Great work you all. Beats me why some shots are side ways. I picked up a copy of Flyfishing and Tying Journal at the library. There was a "tip" about tying parachutes with the hook vertical so the post is horizontal. I tried and it seems like a cool idea.
  15. Charlie's rocks. I tried making it up there today. Angler's All is pretty cool. They had a party Thursday evening, right after I scored a couple of hats at Orvis Park Meadows for trying a new Helios 3. We're very fortunate to have such great shops close by (Orchard and Havana in my intersection).Is the body that new orange peacock herl? Trimmed on top and resined? Thanks! It is Peacock and Ostrich Herl. I use an electric eraser to remove the fuzz and to expose the stem and then coat with UV resin. I was also at Angler's on Thursday. Kimo Thanks for the info, much appreciated. The wings at Anglers were pretty good.

  17. Not at all the same insect. The ones in the film (the bugs that have been called BWOs for 200 years or more) are related to Hendricksons and are similar in appearance (except a bit smaller) and have a similar life style (crawler nymphs). What most people in this country call BWOs (Baetis sp) are more closely related to just about every other insect that the Brits call olives, except the BWO, and they're swimmer nymphs. (To be fair, there are a few bugs here, such as D. cornuta that get called BWOs which are more closely related to the bugs in the film.) Thank you sir
