First Ties for the Midwest

Recommended Posts

As I've mentioned in my intro and beginner posts, I'm new to fly fishing in the Midwest. So I'm adapting my western trout fishing skills to panfish and bass. So here are some of my first flies for targeting fish in Ohio.



A generic "idunnowhat" with squirrel tail and pheasant feather.



A foam head popper.



A wooly bugger/worm in white and chartreuse.



A wooly bug/worm with dubbed black body and a gold wire.



A terrible attempt at a hare's ear nymph with some substitutions for materials. It sorts looks ok, but I'm not happy with it.



A basic black spider with hackle that was a bit too long and a bit too much head space.



A black foam head popper with a peacock body, split tail and a little chartreuse hackle.


Let me know what you think. I have a lot of work to do to get better!

The first one looks like a red wasp, except for the tail, which I suspect is a tad long anyway. The buggers look great.
