    Is it a faux pas to wait with baited breath on a fly fishing forum?

    sorry about the delay... the winner is Jack's burlap.

    good job to everyone who posted their great flies.

    i chose the burlap because it reminds me so much of a fly i landed two fish on the one and only time i fished the north fork of the stilly and it was an exceptional tie and photo.

    Not sure, I just figured it was a long weekend so I'd bump the thread so Chris would make a call and we can get rollin' on tying into September...

    Nice work Jack!

    Not to hijack, but I bet this would make an awesome estuary chum fly! I'll be tying some up for next month! Thanks Leland!

    How did you get the floating look on this fly for the picture? Picture looks great.

    I didn't take the photo. A professional photographer took them and I wasn't with him when he shot it but I am sure he mounted it on a small plexi post just as flies are mounted on plates and shadow boxes.

    Thomas, those are way cool.

    Leland, I have had a pic of your Fat Train up on my wall for a couple of years. I love that fly. Thanks for posting it again.

    Oh Please STOP IT!

    You guys are just feeding my addiction and I can't get out on the river for a while.


    Beautiful flies. Great photos.

    No, don't stop. Keep them coming. I will deal with the addiction.
    Thanks for sharing.

    This is as sparse as I get when it comes to low water patterns - otherwise, I am fishing for something else.
    this is my favorite warm day - mid to late summer steelhead pattern
