Looked at some Kelly Galloups vids on the tube. Tried a bottoms up but down sized for trout. Here it is after a test swim. Sits up really well. Next attempt will have a lot more herl in the tail but it looks a lot better in the water than I hoped. Especially the rubber legs at the bottom

Wow Piker! You must have some kind of record for posts! I bet you get 1000 by 6 months!

Nice fly by the way.

Get Small!

If you can't be fishing might as well bore someone about fishing! The wifes family have all moved up north including 3 fishers so hopefully be able to leave the kids and wet more fluff.

I experimented in creating a new Pike fly. It's made from hollow tied Alpaca fur, on a 2/0 hook. It's got a very bulky profile in the water when it's being fished, a chunky baitfish profile lol

Great flies, everyone! Here is a squid-ish jig/fly thing for the salt I concocted! I probably won't even fly fish with it, but instead will jig it off a boat for lings.B)


Enjoy!

Thank You and Tight Lines,
Carson LeBoeuf

Eventually a fly will be produced from this bench, but I thought I would share the preparation phase of an evening of fly tying. A little Kentucky bourbon will produce immense inspiration.
