Nice macro shot of that A+ fly


Thanks Nick!

You've been on a terror yourself lately.


Came up with a new/better way to mount/revolve my flies for 360 degree views.

Hence all of the animated GIF's.




You'll have to enlighten me H... ;)

I've had to take a break from tying mop flies now and then. I saw this pattern on the Global Flyfisher last fall and decided to give it a try. It's a bait fish pattern designed to float in the surface film and create a wake. The prototype worked fairly well even caught a small bass on it.

This one is tied in a tarpon fly style. Should give me a bit of bite protection if I decide to throw it a toothy critters




This is the style I probably use for most of the minnow patterns.




I'm heading up to a lake in the Poconos for a week on May 19th. Figure both the bass and sunfish should be spawning around then. Not sure how it work. I'll let you know.

Hi All, very nice ties, feel free to use my pictures for "what not what to do" I've been tying trout flies (mostly nymphs) for about 3 weeks although years ago I tied some steelhead / salmon glo-bugs, estaz eggs, egg sucking leeches to fish the Salmon River in NY.

Here are some of the recent ones. Thanks for looking.

sz.16 fly larvae with 8-10 wraps of .020 lead free wire under the yarn I got from my wife's scrap bag, she's a knitter.



Here's a sz16 wood duck scud.



Tied these Elk hair Caddis today.
