Two orders this week. One heading out west to mess with those Montana browns and bulls, one to Minnesota for some smalljaw action.

^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.

Just finished up some of  my flies for my Canadian trip.

These are some crayfish patterns.  The smallmouth were all over them last year when I was able to do some fly fishing.

This is what one looks like in a plastic container of water.

These some top waters, basically my two go to panfish flies sized up for bass.  I can also fish them subsurface off either an intermediate or sinking line.

Summertime is when the foam comes out!  Gotta love it.  I can make a foam fly that floats, Lol.

I was actually worried about that same thing... Believe it or not, picked up a "kit" from Orvis while I was over car shopping the other day.  Came with these hooks and pre formed/slotted bodies.  I'll maybe shave down the underside of the foam to add a little more clearance.
