Where did my post go? I put up a post last night and now it is gone..ph34r.png  oh well, I am tying a variant of the higenaga dry caddis. The fly is a bit messier and spread out but apparently they like 'em that way.rolleyes.gif  Hope this one gets through the space full of too many micro waves.

I've been struggling to pick a pattern.  Hoping to tie something unique but effective.  However, all attempts at innovation (or simply copying some of the more unique patterns) has results in flies that are less effective than my favorites.  I'm going to stick with what works even if it's a little boring.  

 

I'll tie an X2 Caddis and might round it out with some another life stage or two if a have the time.

My wife got you a bottle of "I Dare You Stupit" ( name is misspelled) from Ed at the Christmas show. I will send it with the flies.
Give a man a fish and you'll feed him for the day; Teach a man to tie flies and he'll pick up all the roadkill.

Flies that catch fish are always my favorites!

Maybe too much interference in the air from Toronto eh?

I have finished my flies, they are wild and crazy but they are suppose to be. I'll get them in the mail when the rain and wind stops.

You didn't have to do that.  We are just so glad in the States that the guy is in Canada and not here for a change.

A Pitt fan, a Marshall fan, and a WVU fan are climbing a mountain and arguing about who loves their team most. The Marshall fan insists that he is most loyal and then yells,"This is for Marshall!" and jumps off the mountain. Not to be out done,The WVU fan next professes his love for his team. He screams,"This is for the Mountaineers!" and pushes the Pitt fan off the mountain.
