Those are really sweet Bruce. I particularly like the last one. Could you put small walk through on that dragon flie up for me. That is something I really want to tie. I see a lot of large bass taking those from the surface where I live and do not have a pattern or walk through in any of my books.

Ok here is another Alaskabou type fly.

Was going for a purple grape but couldn't find any pattern info so I just made a nice purple fly with marabou and krystal flash

Congrats on the new vice, Tom! Looks like it does a nice job.

ChefBen, I love that congo hair shrimp. I ordered some for the first time last week, so I'm anxious to get it an try that and some of the other patterns I've seen over in the Saltwater section.
