  1. I'm gonna be a bit behind on these, a little busy with life right now.
  2. I ran out of #28's 2/3rds of the way through and can't seem to find any more, so some of mine will be #26's if that's alright?
  3. mine will be shipping on Thursday, they've been done for quite a while,but between work and snow I haven't got the chance to get to the post office.
  4. yeah, got them yesterday.
  5. I almost always put 10-15 wraps of .015 lead free wire on my EP flies.
  6. Week 8: Dessert This week I decided to do a featherwing streamer. The fly represents a traditional "banana split" style sundae. The tail is red hackle fibers to represent strawberry syrup, the body is pink, cream, and brown floss to represent strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate ice cream, the brown hackle and underwing represents chocolate syrup, the white hackle wing is whipped cream, and red hackle tips on the cheeks are the cherry on top.
  7. I try to only carry 2 or 3 on the water, but I have about 35 in my car most of the time, but that's more because I fish for anything and everything, so I just keep all my fly boxes in the car and grab what I think I'll need for the day when I get on the water.
  8. I;m half way done, I just need to make a materials run, I ran out of hooks and bleached deer hair.
  9. I'm in. Pheasant Tail Soft Hackle.
  10. Why would I do that? I love tying tiny flies. Mine will be elther #26 or #28
  11. Okay, I think I'll go with a Borski's Mangrove Critter and a Predator Pounder.
  12. I'll give this a shot. Just need a bit to pick a pattern.
  13. Big, bright, obnoxious, lots of movement and pushing a lot of water. And remember fellas, muskie flies demand a HEAVY rod, I do most of my fishing with a 10-weight, and if I'm fishing a body of water with REALLY big bait and predators, I've been known to use a 12-weight as well. I'll never go below a 9-weight for muskies,and even for Northern Pike, I only use an 8-weight in a pinch if I stumble across pike while bass fishing.
  14. Yes, it's the same popper pattern I tied for the warm water swap on paflyfish, just in a different color scheme. That is then how the human mind works in similar patterns.... Did not go for any pattern descriptions, just fiddled around with some foam, and tied this one... Strange.... If any one had planned to tie something like this, I will gladly change my pattern.... /Henrik Sorry for any confusion, my fly is not the same as yours...this is the pattern I tied for this swap, just in red/white and frog instead of Chartreuse Firetiger.
  15. Yes, it's the same popper pattern I tied for the warm water swap on paflyfish, just in a different color scheme.
  16. oh crap!!! I'll contact the guy hosting the other swap and tell them to return them to me. I must have got my envelopes mixed up.I doubt you'd be in that swap because that one's being hosted over at paflyfish.
  17. I love tying and fishing attractor dries, with a particular preference for the Royal Wulff, White Wulff, Orange Humpy, H&L Variant and Lime Trude. For non-brook trout, its more or less just generic parachutes and comparaduns, and Stimulators,but those are mostly just used as indicators on dry/dropper rigs.
  18. Week 7: Dots Given the fact that there's a good bit of Guinea in my fly-tying kit, that was an obvious choice for this week's theme. The fly is a featherwing-style fly, similar in taste to a traditional salmon fly. I'm out of town at the moment, and somehow my travel vise was lost in transit, so forgive the crudeness, as this fly was tied in hand. another attempt, tied with the aid of a vise.
  19. Week 6: Something Old i have an affinity for classic flies, but since this challenge is about creativity and freestyle flies, tying up one of the classics just wouldn't cut it here. My pattern choice for this week is a combination of styles, in an East-meets-West type of approach. i took a classic western fly pattern, the Quill Gordon, and tied it in the traditional eastern "sakasa kebari" style.
