    bought up some of the pro tubes...dig um..can slide on weights from the bars to 40 or 60gr blobs...and tying these...

    Some might consider um a waste on what I plan on using them for but I don't care at this point...just getting ready for summers..

    I think we are looking at cooler "spring like" conditions through the month of June - when the water starts to drop and warm its purple, red/black and orange/red. Then move to the smaller stuff and lighter tips/floating lines later in summer.

    These are large and moderate size bou's with a little flash - fun for the NW river I will focus my time on.

    I don't think that trilobite/horseshoe crab lookin' thing will fish very well where you're going in the fall. Just sayin'.

    Golf - When I get a few tied up over the next week or so I'll send you a photo.
    They are just a simple one segment marabou with an ice dub or anglel hair butt tied in long with a dubbing loop. Add some flash and I collar it with Blue Eared Pheasent.

    I have not been tying a damn thing. I'm lucky that in the past month I've fished a lake and tied a few flies onto my tippet.

    Golf, I'm really digging that intruder style tube; 3rd row down and last fly if youy start from left. Since I like it, I want one. Perhaps you'll get a special treat in return. :thumb:

    Leroy, tell me about that last fly. Do you use that as a lifter or dead drifted??

    Steve I'm that bored but I'm still unpacking and don't have all my stuff at my room yet so where do I start? Another Dr. viisit tomorrow so I can get results of tests and further instructions. I'm always needing to get stuff but my trips to the storage are few and far between. We're getting things done in other areas though and having some fun with the grand kids I get to see sofar. I've got to get the camp gear all found and the fishing gear ready by the 7th so I don't have to waste a day before we can load for the Deschutes when we get back from up your way. I don't mind being lazy but I want to be lazy on the river not at home. I'll drop by if I can while I'm there. Take care

    Leroy, I assume you know Mo. He does very well with a fly like that used as lifter (dropped off a traditional)
