Nice job poopdeck. That was a quick pick up squeezy.

Testing my skills. Headed out to chase timber goats this afternoon and figured I’ll be up and wanting to tie after freezing in the timber, plus I’ve wanted to give more foam a shot. Good chance I’ll brutally screw it up, but one has to try right?

Well no luck in the timber- saw a lone yearling and a doe with her 2 closely following. Sure was frigid this evening. 
 

Here is my Charlie Boy Hopper. Also tied one in a dark brown with yellow legs and bleached deer hair. 
 

The next fly is:  Mop Fly

Thank you gentlemen. I really liked tying that fly. I’m assuming I could up the hook and go to 3mm or glue 2ea 2mm sheets and make a larger version for bass.

I got skunked elk hunting this year. Nice ties. The Charlie boy and Charlie baby boy are two of my go to hopper patterns.

I can post some mops.  I too don’t do them anymore.  I didn’t like the sogginess and missed strikes.  Some peeps like em. But here’s a CaddisPupa, DrownedHopper, and some lil bright deals for gills.

LOL -  I'll occasionally tie one on for warm water, they can get clunky though.
