Actually, flies are in my tying room along with Woodenleg's. First two sets already looking like I may need to retie. Mine are going to be among the larger of the sets for sure even thought they're on a 14 hook I think I dubbed them a little heavy. Maybe the ticket in off colored water. Will get pictures of all before I send them out.

Disregard my earlier question about the Mysis shrimp. I will do Charlie Craven's Plain Old Scud.

Mysis shrimp are a tailwater staple and I'll have to tie some of those to go with in the White box.

Vicrider, my flies are in the mail and you should have them on Thursday. It's been a while since I tied anything and these are #16 so I hope they are acceptable. Hope you enjoy your fishing trip and that you catch a bucket full!

 

Take care

Fishin'Bob, your flies are in. Delicate little guys. Is that an 16 hook? I know you say so on tag but that's one of the smallest 16s I've seen. I figured it was an 18. Fly hook sizes are all over the place from different mfg'ers and yours look great but my 18s would be your 16s. I know I tied mine on Tiemco 14s and they could eat you fly for breakfast. Mine are weighted so yours should be a trailer I'd think.

 

BB, I know your work is going to be top quality. It's like bicycle riding. You never forget...except last time I tried riding a bicycle I fell off.

Probably did but still on the tag. Just set those aside. Will try to get a shot of yours and mine side by each and see the difference in hook size.

 

I should also mention that for your tie I used a brass bead for the orange in the middle to represent egg sac. If any others are from CA I'll do the same. Otherwise mine are weighted with lead wire and then squished flat with olive dubbing on two ends and orange dubbing in center. Everything I read is that scuds egg sacs are orange or as the start to die and make an easy meal the start to turn orange so I tied some in the middle. Couldn't find any words to rhyme with orange though so I didn't do a poem on this batch.

Breambust and J-Kno are in the house. Haven't been to PO today so maybe more on the way. Vicente, I'll make sure yours is a brass bead instead of that dreaded lead that can kill on contact once it crosses the state line into CA. In the future I'll probably order tin instead and have been going to mostly tungsten beads as I re-order. I don't keep track of the weight of my flies like a good fisherman should and if I was a good fisherman who had access to near daily trout streams instead of once a year or so I'd definitely use some color coding to keep better track of the weight of my leaded and beaded ties. Just read recently a good, simple idea to use different color threads to designate weight. I use a lot of different color threads but in MOST flies thread color isn't even seen until you tie off head. Notice Is said most. Obviously not true of thread flies like soft hackles and the tiny ones.

jburge lives about 4 miles from me.  We had lunch together today, he just got back from backpacking the East Carson River.  He had a great Mama Bear and two Cubs story too.

I'm glad he has the story to tell. Mama bear and two Cubs doesn't always come out well.
