Reunited with the rest of my tying stuff! The hook is a short-shank, same length as a #16 but with a wider gap; may help in hooking. The bugs should be around for Opening Day in Yellowstone in 2 weeks.

hook - BVFT Dry #14
thread - Veevus 8/0 olive
body - Zelon dubbing white miller
wing - Congo Hair white
collar - pronghorn hair white

Regards,
Scott

Still searching for the perfect dirty motor oil color; not sure about the aftershaft shoulder but it came off with the rump feather so I thought I’d use it. The hatch has come and gone but I’ll play with it anyway at some point.

hook - WFC Model 6 #8
thread - Danville 6/0 black 
egg sac - Congo Hair black
rib - UTC 140 yellow
body - pronghorn hair dyed skwolive (1 Tbs Rit Dark Brown/1 cup water; overdyed with 1 Tbs Rit Black/1 cup water)
wing - Congo Hair baitfish grey
collar - pronghorn hair dyed skwolive 
first shoulder - pheasant rump dyed black
2nd shoulder - pheasant aftershaft dyed black

Regards,
Scott

Philly you fish the same lakes and lake styles that I do. Are there Crayfish in these rocky bottom lakes. I like these and had thought of tying some up but I don't know if the fish will recognize them as food. I suspect they will even if they aren't aware of Crayfish. Are you up there now or is that next week? I leave next Friday.

Nice
