  1. Thanks all for the kind words. My flys aren’t as well tied as most on this forum, but I do try, and most fish just fine. I had the opportunity to fish with (I had just met him on the river while fishing) a fairly well known fly fisherman and author , he actually put me onto this fly. Been fishing it ever since then. I have been lucky to meet many great people on the rivers and riverbanks all over the west. There is SERIOUS talent among tiers on this site, I enjoy seeing all the flys posted here. I also like reading the stories behind the flys, the “five w’s” if you will, of the tier’s experiences with the flys. “ bugs and bourbon” I LIKE IT! Sounds better than “bugs and scotch”
  2. ROYAL WULFF This is a fly I use quite a bit. I tie it in large sizes, 6-10, and use it for the dry fly in a dry/dropper set up. This fly floats well with proper floatent , it tends to ride low in the water which I like for an attractor pattern. This fly with a PT soft hackle dropper on the Firehole is my go to set up. Browns will hit this fly with reckless abandon. Hook size 10 dry fly 2x long tail - golden pheasant body peacock hurl and red floss wing calf tail Furnace hackle.
  3. Thanks. Not much to it, never fished or tied one before. Google was my friend. next fly Haystack
  4. Rock worm #10 nymph hook black thread red floss underbody shrimp color vinyl rib hurl head NEXT FLY Haystack
  5. I will accept the challenge to do a ROCK WORM. It might be Saturday before I get time to do it. Lots of family stuff going on here. Never tied one, looks pretty straight forward. TT
  6. I am looking for a display case to put some of my flys in ( my better tied ones ) . My family wants a collection of flys that I have tied, for you know, a remembrance for when I’m not around anymore. A glass case with a door that opens easily, with a foam of some sort to attach the flys to. I have not seen such a case for sale, only shadow box types. I don’t want to have to take the case apart to add flys as I tie them. Probably hold a few dozen or better. Do any of you have such a case? How do you display a fly collection? TT
  7. I was going to give it a try, but I don’t have material for the mop. Can’t even find a good looking substitute.
  8. Thanks, I have edited the first post to reflect your suggestions.
  9. No.. to pretty of a fly to delete. It’s a week limit max time, no limit on how fast.
  10. Next challenge fly, I name a REVERSE SPIDER SOFT HACKLE, like the ones used for sea run cuts up here in the northwest. Remember, the tier who accepts the challenge, ties the fly and posts the pictures, gets to name the next challenge fly.
  11. Ya, I think we are past the rubber legs and onto a bugger. GREAT FLY ! thanks for sharing , nice pictures
  12. Wanted to tie up a silver bugger with black hackle and silver bullet nose tungsten bead. Browns in still water can’t resist them stripped in fast. Problem is, I’m out of silver ostrich hurl that I use for the body… this is a VERY heavy fly. In faster deep water I use this fly as a “sinker”, the first fly in a two or three fly nymph rig to get the flys DEEP. So, my second favorite color is purple with gold bead. hook. 2x long sz 8 or 10 heavy tail. Purple maribu with purple ostrich hurl strands body Purple ostrich hurl rib Fine gold wire hackle Black lead VERY HEAVY FLY Head. gold bead
