Okay, now that they're going out let me tell me what I tied. It is a heavily palmered Crackleback that should float well with a little floatant. The extended leader is tied right under the fly body and the ring is so you can take any of the extra flies and use a 4x-6x dropper of any length you need to give 'em the double whammy. Of course, any of the flies will stand alone if you choose to fish them that way. Hope it works out for you. 


ps...yes, got mine today also including 3 Christmas packages and a shipment from JS Stockard so I can get cracking on the caddis swap.

Flies have arrived and it looks like there is one for just about any occasion.  Thanks for hosting BB and thanks to all the tyers.  Happy Thanksgiving.

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.
