  4. I decided to tie a few midge emergers; starting with a #18 and worked my way down to a #28. (I do use magnifiers) This one is the Matthew’s Zelon Midge see Tim Flagler's video. I showed my wife and she said "so you're tying fruit flies now?" I laughed and said I think fruit flies are smaller. She said I saw a dead one over on the counter. I collected it and compared it to the fly and was surprised. I guess I'm tying fruit flies now.

  10. Another great fly, especially like how it sinks with head vertical. Would work well for bass in crawdad colors.
  11. Never thought to use a GP tippet for a shoulder…makes the fly visually pop & zing.
  12. A search for Outdoor Life did not find what you mentioned Skeet3t. However, their 12 best terrestrial flies did come up and I thought I’d share. https://www.outdoorlife.com/blogs/gone-fishin/2014/06/fly-fishing-12-best-extra-terrestrials-flies-trout/
  13. Thanks Scott. I’m really liking the Golden olive colors. Great Salmon, Steelhead pattern for sure. Thanks WWKimba.
