  1. Ahh, yes, I see it now. I knew what the Krystal Flash was and now I see the other. Good stuff. Thanks guys!
  2. Those are sweeeeet :headbang: :headbang: !!!! Anyone know what the tail fibers are? Looks like EP or Congo Hair to me, but I'm not sure.
  3. I don't get to fish for smallies as much as I'd like to but I do know a few largemouth bass that would eat that :headbang: . I wouldn't trim too much more though. Remember, you can always take more off later if you need to, but it's really hard to put more on at this stage.

    Hey y'all!!

    Just in the neighborhood and thought I'd stop by and say hello!! Hope you are all doing well!! I hope to finally be able to be more active here and on TFF too. I guess we'll see how it goes. Take care, Terry
  5. Smallies? In Mississippi? Outside of Pickwick Lake I doubt there are any there. I'm just sayin'.......
  6. sounds like you need to give up trout and fine tune your smallie fishin and chase 3 4 and 5+ pound smallies! What day5 said :headbang:
  7. I posted this at TFF too, but thought I'd put it here for anyone who doesn't get over there much. Just what it says, I'm looking for someone to take me fishing in Jacksonville over Labor Day Weekend. If you're interested let me know. Thanks, Terry
  8. I looked for it but didn't find it. Got any pictures?
  9. I love these flys but I never seem to get the size bass that I think I should on them. I usually still do better with poppers, sliders and divers. I still love 'em though.
  10. I'd like to see that mirrolure fly and I think I'll try your suggestion of an intermediate line to eliminate the hinge. I think that has been holding me back in those situations when I try to make a Deceiver act like a fluke or similar lure. Regarding big vs small flys, if you go big you have to be willing to accept that you won't get near as many bites as you would with a smaller fly (most days anyway) but the fish that you get to bite have a good chance at being bigger/better ones.
  11. I use a Deceiver as was mentioned before for this very thing, as a sub for a Zoom Super Fluke. It works pretty good, not as good as the plastic :sick: but well enough to keep my attention.
  12. Fred and Roger thank you for your responses and great information. Now I have to pick a few patterns to try out. Thanks again!! Terry
  13. Here's an easy one (I hope) for you bug guys. I always see different colors of dragon flys around the ponds I fish at. My question is two-fold. First, if there are a lot of dragon flys around a given pond is it safe to assume that there are dragon nymphs in the same pond? Also, if the dragon flys are a particular color does the color of the nymph correlate with the color of the dragon fly that came from it? I hope this is as easy as it sounds. Thanks, Terry
  14. One piece of advice that someone gave me that proved true. If you take a kid fishing, yours or someone else's, don't plan on fishing yourself. Focus on teaching the kid, not on fishing yourself, particularly on the first couple of trips.
  15. I started with wooly buggers because I was told that if I learned it I could tie anything. I went to Clouser minnows and foam spiders after that because that's what I caught fish on the most (probably still do).
  16. Go big or go home, I've always said that. Words to live by, in fishing and in life
  17. Those look great!!! I got several ideas just thumbing through those. Now as soon as I find some time to tie.....
  18. I just wanted to let everyone know that even though I haven't been on in a long time I'm still kickin'. Hope all is well with you guys/girls. I promise to try to check in more frequently from now on. I miss this place!! Take care, Terry
  19. Matt the eyes are made by Spirit River and they are called Deep See Eyes. They are made from aluminum and as such, as you pointed out, they have a large size-to-weight ratio compared to other eyes. As far as casting on a 6 wt I don't know. It is a 3/0 hook but the rabbit body is off the hide and dubbed via a loop. The eyes are the only weight other than the hook. You'll probably be fine with the 6. Sniky don't worry about it. I'm glad you all like the flys. Take care.
  20. Apology accepted, sniky, and no need to worry about it any further. It's no big deal. If you feel you need to make amends then you can buy me a Coke Zero the next time you're in Memphis or I'm in Iowa or whatever crazy fool place we happen to meet up at. Take care, Terry
  21. If you knew you would be that anxious then you should have put postage and an envelope for the return trip in your package like everyone else did . That being said, I apologize for the delay in shipping but all packages went out this morning. It has been a pleasure hosting this swap. I hope that you all enjoyed it as much as I did. Enjoy the great flys (and mine too ) and post when your packages arrive please. Take care, Terry
  22. I got Scott V's flys on Wednesday just like he said I would so that means all sets are in :headbang: :yahoo: :headbang: !!! Now I just have to find time to get them sorted and to the post office. The end of this week is cram-jammed full on my calender so they might not get out until Saturday evening/Tuesday morning at the latest (I knew there was a reason for the due date being Monday ). Thanks to all and I will post when the mail goes out. Terry
  23. Well, just to prove that great looks aren't the only redeeming quality I have :hyst: , I will forgive you. I'll be looking for them. The packages will be on their way back by the end of the week. No worries.
  24. Just got today's mail and there were two killer sets of flys, one from JJD and one from Chase Creek :headbang: :headbang: :yahoo: :yahoo: :headbang: :headbang: !!! Thanks for the you know what's guys and I will honor your request Chase Creek, no problem. One more set to go and we begin the return trip.
