  1. Contact St Croix. I have gotten excellent service from them
  2. For lakes, a Carey Special. If you have Stoneflies, a girdle bug or a Brooks Stone nymph
  3. All sorted. In the mail soon. Great flies. Thanks for participating. I am humbled. Mine don't have toe tags. One Scandinavian in Salmon colors and one tube fly in Steelhead colors. If someone could post photos, my phone will not load today.
  4. I have received them all. Will process and mail Monday or Tuesday
  5. The space would be 1great for a Portland hitch. Welcome.
  6. We use them as toppings, and they last for at least a couple fish.
  7. Nice fly, Flytier. How long do the legs hold up? I like any fly with peacock, except a Zug bug.
  8. I agree. Beautiful fly. That would probably take some coastal cutthroat. I may have to "borrow" the pattern. Thanks for posting.
  9. Flies tied "in the round" appear the same either way, too the fish. Now whether hook up or down hooks better?
  10. I have. It swims well. You might want a sink tip to get it down.
  11. I have been happy with my Regal Medallion. Not great for small flies. If I were tying a lot of small stuff, I would get midge jaws. It has a groove for larger hooks. It holds an HMH tube adapter well. I have not been happy with how it hols intruder shanks.
  12. Flies for Pacific Salmon and Steelhead. Scandi type Intruders. Taken with modification from on-line tutorial FTD fish shanks 1.5 inch. Beading wire or Berkley wire leader, Hooks: Partridge Salmon, Gamakatsu Octupus or Dropshot Bump,: chart estaz or polar chenille. Tail: chart fluoro fiber Body: blue metallic embroidery thread Rib: chart flat braid (FTD) Palmered blue strung saddle Wing: black Congo hair (FTD) Topping: unraveled blue metallic embroidery thread, chart. Lady Amherst. +/- Peacock here Collar blue dyed Guinea Cheeks: Jungle Cock nail All are a little different. Playing with proportions and materials. The heads are bigger than I would like, but fairly proportional. Still learning. Criticism welcome.
