These guys are a little portly because I added some .015 lead and a med wire rib.   I prefer not to use split shot on my line if I can help it.

Coneheads work, too, and allow for a slim body profile, if that’s what you’re looking for.

Scott

Playing around with some big “flash muddlers”.  The wings/tails are wide flash instead of turkey...

  I wish I had thought of coneheads-  I like the slim profile look but getting it down into 4' of water without split shot isn't easy.

I really like the look of that tie!  

Thank you, that's kind of you to say.   When it comes to tying with deer hair I'm no SBPatt- Still, I think they're tied well enough to fool the occasional trout.  🙂

- what type of vise is that?

Outlaw Thompson or something or other?  Some times when waiting on glue to dry I got something in all 5.   Simple adjust from 7/0 to #20 with quick turns of the barrel and shower down on the lever holds the world.  Tried the rotaries went back to the work horse for years.  Have had to replace the pins after braking them on big hooks.    Surprise!

Tubbing bodies.  Had to split it to make it smaller.   The flash in it makes the clear bodies sparkle.

Arkie Spring River candy for the stockers. They like larger bright flies.  The big dries have deer hair hackles.
