Fantastic stuff, everyone.

 

Hans, I love that Noel!

Rick, I especially like the red one with the tippet tail.

Jindra, your flies always look like fish catchers.

You are too kind; but thanks anyhow :D The post is a piece of Booby foam - stillwater guys use it for the booby style lures. It is full of air bubbles, so it is 1) very buoyant and 2) very compressible. I just tied it tight and hid the butt end in dubbing to make thorax.

 

Cheers!

Heard some of the tailwater guys talking about high, cloudy water and tying some bright stuff. Candy

And there was talk about an effective nymph with a bright collar or as I used a colored bead, too.

Got an idea for some beads and legs...legs off some bass jigs and some glass beads from craft shop.

Tried a few snails after discovering the bow bellies full of them from the Spring River, Ark.

Had some luck with a look alike craw pattern from FT Mag. They worked great on the drift but didn't jerk as well so I came up with a "act like" cdad.
