February Flies From the Vise

I'd be interested to know how they do on the water. How do the hooks work? Do they penetrate when you rip the bass? Can you push the hook back into the foam? They look like bass getters.

Tried tying some parachute adams this afternoon. I think they turned out pretty good, but maybe the post needs to be hackled a bit denser...🤔.

Winter Stonefly (Roos variation)

Playing around with a black caddis idea (hence the Goddard-like wing shape) and realized it’d make a passable winter stonefly.  May have to integrate an indicator of some kind since I won’t see this past 15’.


hook - WFC Model 3 #16
thread - Danville 6/0 black
body - stripped quill black
wing - Congo Hair charcoal
hackle - black

Is a pheasant clouser still a clouser, or did someone already give it a new name and take credit for running out of bucktail?
