What type of flies to you find most challenging?
Posted 30 November 2004 - 10:08 PM
For me it's the spun deer hair bassbugs. Once I got a brassie hair packer that portion of it has improved but the trimming into popper type shapes and detailing with multiple colors of deer hair in an effort to do much beyond a simple band of color added just gives me fits! What I wouldn't give for an afternoon with mr Helms over in Toledo!
Get me on the water!!

Dry flies! Probably a combination of lesser hackles, small hooks, and patience, but I never like how they come out.

Has to be a deer hair popper for me, for some reason I have a hard time getting a cupped or even flat face.
