  1. I've seen a Law vise, but never tied on one...
  2. Big shoot for the youth shotgun team that weekend. I do hope to make it next year

  4. Black Widow comes to mind, I'm diggin' it!
  5. Sharing here for everyone: Thank you for the complement! I designed that fly about 16 years ago. I'm a big Sylvester Nemes fan and love the book North Country Flies by Robert L. Smith. (That book is expensive, but worth it) I wanted something that I could use on the end of a multi-fly rig to flop around and it fit the bill. I showed it to a friend of mine (author, artist & fly designer) and he said it was great! He asked what colors worked the best and I had only used light olive at that time, but every color I've tied it in since has worked... even white! I almost always have one on as my dropper fly. Lite-Brite soft hackle: I use the following, tied in this order: Hook: 1x long, 1x strong nymph (Dai-Riki 060) 16-12 Thread: Dealers choice, I prefer UTC in 70... every color I have used has caught fish, but chartreuse is always a winner Rib: Medium copper wire Body: Pearl mylar over thread body with slight overlap Thorax: Peacock herl Legs/soft hackle: Anything from Hungarian partridge to speckled brahma hen Compact head! -Judson
  6. My flies went out today, should see them Thursday. These ae the first flies I've tied since rotator cuff surgery in Dec... I was a little sore so took a couple sessions... new stretching seemed to help.
  7. I'm in with a Lite Brite Soft Hackle
  8. I've always gone in to mail them out. I would have never known! Thanks for posting.
