After a bunch of really nice looking flies, I figure I'd break the streak.   My SW club has been having Friday night Zoom tying sessions for the last year.  Everyone tied what they wanted.  We "sit' around critique them, ask questions, have a drink or two.  For this year, everyone gets a pattern or two that we'll be tying, along with a list of materials.  I can't set my computer up in my tying room, so I tie mine up, take a picture or two and use it for my Zoom background.  We started off simple, two different mop fly patterns.  The first was the Double Mop fly.  All I can tell you is that one is tied on size 12 hook and the other on a size 6.  They're both Partridge hooks. I did forget to add the lead wraps(8) and I'm now trying figure out how to supersize it up to nightcrawler size.  

Here's the list of materials the host sent us.

Double Mop;

Hook: Czech Nymph, Buzzer or Scud size 12 Barbless!
Thread: 140D Gray / Tan
Weight: .020 wire
Adhesive: Zap-A-Gap
Body: Gray or Tan Mop Chenille. 3 car mit mop fibers per fly

The second was called the Creature Fly.  Here's the list of materials the host sent us.  I tied mine a size 6 hook, possiblly a Partridge Klinkhammer hook.

Creature Fly:

Hook: Mustad 3366 Size 8
Thread: Color of choice, will show on head, 140D
Adhesive: Zap-A-Gap
Body: mop chenille, color of choice
Legs: Flexi-floss, Life-flex, (silicone or rubber legs will work)
Thorax: Synthetic dubbing for a contrasting  hot spot
Hackle: Pheasant rump feather or long hen feather.

This one is a bass fly I've been tying for a few years.  I've caught bass and pike on it.  It's basically a floating woolly bugger.  I always thought of it as a booby fly, but after a discussion on another board.  It was determined it was almost a booby fly, since I use foam dumbbell eyes to float it.  I found some worm floats from my early days of walleye fishing, and turned them into eyes.  I figure the ones I tie up will be booby buggers.  Need to work on the eye spots, though.

Hook: Mustad 3777BR, Size 30(2/0, maybe)

Thread:  Clear Polyester

Tail: Marabou and crystal flas

Body:  Wrapped saddle hackle and long crystal chennile

Eyes:  Black UV resin

Love it!  We call them Green Machines.  Red and Chartreuse tag with brown hackle is killer for fall trout, steelhead and salmon here.
