  1. Tube: Large Loop Bottle Tube Wing: Purple Zonker Strip Underwing: Purple FLashabou Body: Purple Polar Chenille Undercollar: Purple Arctic Fox Collar: Black Schlappen Cheek: Jungle Cock I have been experimenting with bottle tubes lately. This one is large and brass. Fly drops like a stone and gains depth without a sink tip on the swing.

  4. I like to just throw stuff on a hook when tying steelhead flies but sometimes I get lucky and a pattern emerges. When it has proven itself in battle, I sometimes stick a name on it. This little concoction has gotten me 12 grabs. That warrants a name in my book. Hook: Plastic Tube Body: Black UV Polar Chenille Wing: 1 Purple Marabou followed by 2 Black Marabou Feathers Palmered Flash: Claret UV and Cranberry Flashabou Collar: Black Schlappen

  14. Video: http://www.theanglersnet.com/Fly-Fishing-V...n=6&VID=114 One of the easiest and most effective speys to tie, especially if time is an issue. The zonker strip makes the fly have movement even with the slightest of currents. Hook: Alec Jackson Hook Wing: Zonker Strip Dubbing: Angora Collar: Teal
  15. catching a head on that would be like a dream, thanks
  16. I have found blood quill packs to have been either really good (every 4th feather good) or really bad (Only 10 good feathers in the pack) so you have to hunt through each pack in the store to get a really good one. I have found the best most consistant marabou from the longer marabou feathers. You have to strip 3/4 of the feather off and just use the tips to get the whispies but they seem to be longer than blood quills. Select the marabou carefully, if it looks clumped together or has a "Damp" look to it, use it for bugger tails. It must look dry and whispy.
