Great work everyone. Y'all keep the inspiration high.

Last night's Bourbon and Bugs. Pat Dorsey's Neon Nightmare, size 22 TMC 2488, in florescent orange. And the San Juan box is getting fuller.

What is the body on that CDC Emerger KIMO - black<or brown> and white moose mane - and the size of the hook in that specimen?

 

BCT

Size 14

That's the leftover stem from a CDL feather.

Last night's fly tying meet at Cabela's. We tied a couple "Roadkill Skunk Streamers".

Basically, they're buggers tied with Guinea fowl feathers instead of hackle.

"Roadkill Skunks" because of the black, white and red colors.

Nice collection of flies Sandan! Keep up the good work all spring is around the corner.

Thank you, Denduke and Sandan. They're size 10 hooks. I can only hope the optimist are right, and big fish will eat these little things. I'm expecting a bumper crop of half dollar sized sunfish on them !!!

 

But I just have to keep trying.

I wish I could remember the man's name who did the presentation, BCT.

He was trying variations on wooly buggers when he came up with that pattern.

He says that fly accounted for the majority of his catches last year. (Mostly trout)
