  1. An assortment heading to Alaska this month for rainbows and Silvers (Coho), some EZ Morrish Mouse with Fly Skinz Slow Rolla Tail, and some Schminnows I'm taking to Florida next month to hopefully dupe a snook or two.
  2. very handsome tie Scott! kicking it off with a bang. I'm working on an Alaskan Rainbow/Silver Salmon (Coho) that I'll post when finished in a couple of days.
  3. ^I really dig the color scheme and the look but just watch that hook gap- worst thing is when you get a bunch of strikes and none of them stick. If you need to, you can bend that hook up for a little extra clearance.
  4. Two orders this week. One heading out west to mess with those Montana browns and bulls, one to Minnesota for some smalljaw action.
  5. <deleted content> 99% of materials end up unused in tupper ware containers or wooden drawers. lol. This thread is funny
  6. Yea I tend to have way more white/lighter baitfish patterns- but I needed something for those low light days for higher contrast. We shall see- would love to see some of your flies
  7. Here is a good baby tarpon fly- Drew Chicone's Snake Fly variant that he calls "The Devil's Daughter". Pattern was found in his great resource book, "Feather Brain". Daiichi 2546 Size 1/0 Tail- Ostrich Herl and Peacock Body- Marabou Plumes Head- Deer Body Hair Mixed with Peacock Herl. In the water, the peacock "glows" an orange color.
  8. Here is one of my staple patterns in my euro boxes- the Peacock Cased Caddis Jig- Dead simple- sizes 14, 16, and 18 2 strands peacock herl, small olive ultra wire counter wrapped 8 times, your favorite caddis green dubbing. I usually bigger cased caddis imitations in early spring, but year round I find tons of these things in smaller sizes, especially 14-18. You can vary the dubbing color to a cream or brown- both are good to have.
  9. You got the one on the right! Plus some extras.
  10. Not a fan of their hooks- I've heard of so many tempering issues in the past- and I've had several bend out on 12-14" stockies in the past (3-4 years ago). Haven't touched them since. Hanak and Fasna have definitely been my preferred choice lately.
  11. 2 Imposters in a natural sucker/ Red Horse Sucker theme. 6/0 Ahrex PR320 Predator Stinger Hooks. -big fly fiber, sf fiber, squimpish fibers, hedron flashabou blends, strung fuzzy fiber head (on right), Just Add H20 2" Minnow Head Brush (left fly).
  12. You can make money selling fly tying materials as long as you are using a process to make them unique or to find materials and re-market them. There is no money at the end of the day in just reselling from distributors like Wapsi and Hareline because the amount of money required for inventory, and the budget for marketing is insane. But you can develop a small line of materials- dubbings, custom dyed feathers or bucktails, etc and do pretty well. I've been tying and selling flies as a living full time since 2017. In that time I lost a lot of money compared to even a pretty low level job. It pays the bills at times, but it's not sustainable.
  13. Loving this style of patterns- my personal terrestrial box is way out of date- and needing some of these. Ps- what camera and lens are you using- photos look great
