  1. Just ordered a baitfish box from fly tyers dungeon to start tying some saltwater baitfish patterns. I’m no where near the skill level of the tyers on this forum but I thought I’d post something.
  2. Looks great. As Kelly would say that fly will hunt.
  3. Thank you for the replies everyone. Here is an image of one of the smoke wagons I tied. I apologize in advance for my tying. Even though alot of my flies are not the prettiest it has been nice catching fish on them. I almost exclusively fish things I tie now so it's been pretty encouraging when I'm able to fool the native brook trout. https://imgur.com/Wn6lSc7 Another question I had was regarding wet flies. Is there a big difference between tying with silk vs UTC 70? I have been tying up some partridge and orange/olive as well as a few poachers and haven't had much luck with them compared to streamers.
  4. I'm new to tying and trying to figure out what I can do to make my flies swim right side up with the hook on the bottom. I tied a few Smoke Wagons and a wooly bugger with a marabou wing on top and both of these flies swam upside down through the water. They were tied on a size 8 3x hook with a brass bead head. What is the trick to getting them to swim the right way with the extra marabou tied in?
