May Flies From the Vise

Recommended Posts

An orange humpy...  

Well a couple of them.  This whiting saddle is amazing!  I’m on my 3rd fly and have enough left to get maybe 3 more?  And I’m not like skimping on wraps of hackle.  5-6 each fly.  Honestly I never did saddle before.  Always capes.  And while much of my stuff was whiting, I am very impressed with the saddles.  A nice coachman brown, figured would go well with this orange humpy...

Bronze Backs!!!
The pretty face always gets them.
Hard to deny when they dive and swim away.
The video doesn't do it justice.

Kimo, do you have an SBS or video  detailing them? I'd love to throw some at some bass.
