  1. Reverse Copper John Hook: Mustad size 14, 2XL Tail: Partridge Abdomen: Peacock Ribbing: Copper wire Thorax: Copper wire Wings: Goose biots Wing casing: Black backing, Flashabou Notes: While knocked on my butt a bit after my second Pfizer vaccine dose the other day, this pattern appeared in a bizarre dream. Easy to remember it, since it just reversed most of the front half with the back half in the traditional pattern. Looks a lot like a Prince Nymph, but it was fun to experiment.
  2. Is that your new addition to the family?
  3. Thanks, I am going to experiment with that as well.
  4. Kim, thank you for that. I had wondered why it was so difficult for me and I strongly suspect that is why. @Chisum - Welcome to the site. I joined here last early summer and have learned a lot. Great folks on here.
  5. This thought has crossed my mind a few times as well. One way to find out!
  6. @Sandan Nice precision on the details, especially with flies that small. Looking forward to a B&B evening myself this weekend.

  8. Nice job on both! I bet its sister/brother you created there will fish really nicely.
  9. In case you missed it, here's the follow up.
  10. I have the Trekker and am quite happy with it. I think you'll find the hook gaps in the jaws great for those bigger smallmouth flies. As others have said, you can get down to those smaller flies as well with the standard jaws... I've tied #24's with it which I believe is smaller than what Dyan King lists/suggests. No problems at all. Great vise, can't recommend it enough.
  11. Nicely done! That is such a fun fly to tie because of the history behind it, at least to me.
  12. That sounds epic!!!! I'm working my wife on a trip to your fine state not this summer, but the next. The 50 year old birthday celebration angle seems to be working so far.
  13. Nice!!!! I'm hoping our governor does the same again this year.
  14. Overall, I'm pretty happy with Maine's regulations... there are a few stocked rivers in each county that are open year round, the rest are seasonal. Gives the native fish a break, I suppose. That being said, just a handful of weeks until everything opens and I can't wait! My free time is spent plotting and scheming very often right now, ha ha.
