Told you. Apparently the change from the normal profile entices the big boys, browns etc.

The first set of flies I tied were a little rotund (guess it fits the season) due to the lead. I decided to tie a second, unweighted, slimmer set. Finished them this evening so both sets will be on their way to your doorstep soon.

Well, they say rotund flies for rotund fish....

"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading".--Thomas Jefferson

 

There is no such thing as a blank day for a fisherman. It will be saved for him by the white-throated weasel, who watches his fishing from a hole in the wall under which is lying a fish that refused all flies; or by the excitment of identifying insects; or by the apple-bloosom in a nearby orchard; and no one would call that day a blank on which he has seen a king-fisher." -- Arthur Ransome Rod and Line, 1929

I got Rockworm's Rockworms in the mail. Looks like the Canadian tyers are faster than the Americans.

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.

That's because we're all snow-bound and have  to tie flies or go stir crazy.

Mine will be in the mail tomorrow Bob. I tied my version of a size 12 green Hydropsyche caddis larva.


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.
