  1. George, After all the advice and knowledge you gave me I sure would like to be able to return some. I don't know if I can, bit I'll try. Some times when I have tiers block I'll pick up a book of patterns and rather than select anything specific I sort of let my mind wander, picking one from column A, one from column B and so on. That sort of gets the gears turning. I might not end up with anything specific, but rather a "frankenfly" kind of thing, I particularly try to look for not just different combination ideas but technique that I'd like to learn or improve on.
  2. Last week's Bugs and Bourbon. Charlie boy hoppers size 10. Hook, 2mm foam, rubber legs and deer hair.
  3. Not just that but the naked neck is excellent too

  7. Some great work so far this month everyone. Very inspiring. Bugs and Bourbon last night. Parachute Pink Alberts Hook: 16s.

CDL Rib: xs UTC gold wire Abdomen/thorax: Harrop's pro pink Albert dubbing Hackle: Whiting med. dun bronze saddle. BTW I had about 3" of hackle feather left after tying the dozen.
  8. @niveker, Thanks, the bourbon was good, but for tying less is better than more. Flav is short for druenella flavilinea, it's more like a small western green drake in fact sometimes it's called Small Western Drake. They are mostly 14/16s. I don't see any reason to not use that pattern as a template for BWOs. In Rene Harrop's book "Learning from the Water" has quite a few recurring patterns with different materials to match different bugs. Fumbling with Flavs
