  1. hi adam, i live in borden, and by far my most efective fly is a hellgramite nymph, im mostly fishing for steelhead in tidal areas though.

     

    never fished a pink mystery, but a search concluded it was built in pei, for pei....its a wet.

     

    also another guy to look up is steve murphy, he hangs out at the fly shop, and is a wealth of info.


  2. the shoulders were on there before the roof. it just looks that way in the pic, i need a tripod...i was hoping the roof would kind of keep them down a bit, not the case.

    ive removed the roof, and the shoulders, and after all advice...seems the problem was a little of everything.

    firstly, after a closer look, they WERE mounted on top of the head, this wasnt the origional position, but its where it ended up.

    secondly, the strips i cut were wimpy, as in too skinny. i figure this is the reason they moved after the tie in. also cut them longer this time.

    thirdly, i did have to put a banana (bend) in the strip. the tie in point, and the tips were the only things hugging the wing.

    dave, are you saying ive got them on the wrong sides??, as in left on right, and vice versa??

     

    makintrax, this is a pattern i seen dave post a while ago and liked it...i think its a malone pattern??

     

    thanks for encouragement guys
