Hi Everyone,

I've been lurking around the forum for a couple months now, so I figured it was time to post something. I love seeing all the really talented tiers and designers work on here along with all the other great information. I've tied off and on for a few years, but have really hit it hard the last 3-4 months and am improving with both my tying and design skills.(my tying still leaves a lot to be desired!)

These are some of my favorites I've tied this month.

I've been doing a lot of tying, just haven't gotten around to taking pictures.  Here's a couple I did recently.   Can't figure out how to insert a picture between the lines.  

A small shad/bunker pattern

Hook:  Gamkatsu SC 15 size 8

Body:  Olive over White Senyo Lazer Dub

Eyes:  Living Eyes

Head: UV Resin


This was the first popper I learned to tie 25 or so years ago.  The guy who showed it to me called it a "Fun Foam Popper"

Hook:  Straight eye dry fly hook, size 6 or 8

Body: Wrapped dry fly hackle

Tail:  Marabou

Head:  Craft foam circle

"March Brown" Salmon Fly - Round two
Second attempt at this pattern. I completely misjudged the body color produced by silver monkey and "rusty orange" seal fur dubbing. Fortunately, Mark had an example of the real thing.  Thanks for the help!   🙂   I still don't have any either of these materials, but it is shedding season and the color looks pretty close...
I still need to work on my feather wing technique, but I'm much happier with this one than the first attempt.
Per Kelson's recipe:
Tag: Gold oval tinsel
Tail: GP topping
Body: Weimaraner (Yep, Chuck stood still too long... 🙂)
Rib: Gold oval tinsel
Throat: Partridge hackle
Wings: Mottled Turkey
