Fly tying - The art of attaching feathers, fur, wool, and silk to a tiny hook to create artificial lures that imitate insects, a skill easily mastered by anyone who can peel a grape blindfolded with a pair of tweezers and a butter knife while wearing oven mitts.

it was the one with bc eyes.I may have to steal that pattern!
Nice Zip, I still have yet to catch a crappie they aren't as common out here. Was it the little black and silver dubbing bugger with bead chain eyes or a wild card?

Got mine picked up today. Great set of buggers. I especially like to see that others are going in the direction of purple flies. I've been a purple thrower for years with conventional gear and now am tying more flies with it. Where I really felt purple stood out was on dark days or limited light conditions. I've been catching bass and pike regular on the usual fire tiger and chartreuse but then cloud cover came in and things slowed way down. Switch to purple skirt with a tarnished brass blade and things picked right up again.
Thanks for hosting to all for the great contributions.
