January Fly Salon- Marabunta

  1. Nothing special here, but this simple ant is the only one I have in my box, a couple different sizes in red and black. Definitely catches fish and only takes a couple minutes to tie. uploadfromtaptalk1390232788668.jpg

  2. Looks great Gary! I can just imagine a giant trout rising to that.

    Thanks also to Jack for reaching back to the 1930s for a pattern!

    I attended a lecture by Bill Clinton this past week and the discussion turned to ants. He mentioned that the biomass of ants is greater than the biomass of all human beings. That's a lot of fish food and I think worthy of some great patterns.
  3. Special thanks to Jack and Gary for keeping this Salon from being a total disaster, but I think I gotta go with FinLuver's "LIkeable" as my pick for January. You just can't argue with the success of a well eaten pattern that was still catching fish.

    FinLuver, pick something more appealing than ants!

  4. Did this die? Let's knock out a February salon quick and keep it rolling
  5. Looks like FinLuver abandoned us, though I admit I only attempted to communicate through this thread.

    Gary, as runner up the crown is now yours!
  6. Ok I'll get one up and going in the next day or so. Since time is tight I'll be going generic to garner more interest.
