Tying some more halibut and ling cod flies. Here's a tiger rock fish imitation. Eight inches long on two 9/0 hooks.




And some more pike flies. Eight inches long on a 9/0 Owner hook.

It's kind of amazing to me that someone would look at the fish and not know immediately what the story was. Stranger things than that have happened.

By now I've tied about 2000 flies with my HMH TRV and I like it. They ranged in sizes from 16 ( I may have even tied a couple of 18's, but I can't say for sure) to 11/0 and it did well with all sizes except the 11/0. It wasn't easy to hold the 11/0's without them slipping when I needed to pull down extra hard on the thread.


The jaws are as crisp as the day I bought it. No erosion, chips or mushrooming.


I am super happy with the purchase.

I dried a skin from one I shot last spring unfortunately bugs got into as I just left it un-bagged in my shop if I get another this fall i'll be more careful with the skin.


Treat the flesh side of the skin with powdered borax, let it dry and bugs will not bother it.



Or salt.
