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.

I have just tied some articulated woolly buggers, not gave them a swim yet.
I dressed the hook with the body and the tail on a piece of twisted stainless wire with a couple of glass beads between then. will try to get some pics up later.

ps. i hope the big browns like them. thumbup.gif
the fish of a lifetime is out there, you just need to catch it.

I want to add my 2 cents on the topic:

Here are the articulated nymphs and sculpins which work well for any good size Salmonid.

Photo 1: These nymphs have weighted head and soft belly out of a synthetic tube-like string. The tip of the string is melted around the hook eye and shank which keeps the hook in place.

Photo 2: Lenok (Siberian trout) with two animals out of its stomach and two imitations of the same animals.

Photo 3: The sculpin imitations and the "bases" with a string used for such flies. The big stoneflies also could be tied on such bases.

Hope you post up your results with the monsters. I tried a damsel nymph pattern with hinged plaited marabou tail last year and seemed to suffer lots of tail nips that didn't hook up. Told myself the trout were too small! :rolleyes: This year have found a new loch to target with browns running to 5lb I'm informed.
