    Sorry Sean, a wooley bugger is about the only bigger fly I know how to tie. I'm accustomed
    to using/tying size 18 - 24 midges and so forth. The WB is the only big fly in my repetae as of right now. I don't mean to disappoint.:beer2:

    BT - my fav moving water winter pattern is a size 18-22 tungsten candy cane midge. MONEY!

    midges are excellent winter patterns my man. :thumb: especially fished behind a larger stone... and WBuggers, well everyone knows they catch anything that swims. im interested in your little oil twist.

    besides all that im in for whatever. you guys tell me what you want.

    the midges or the leech? ill get started tomorrow. :beer2:

    Sean,

    Tie what you feel like tying. Who cares if it is for a River or Stillwater. Just tie them up, they will still get used!!

    Sean, either one should catch fish, I am open to anything, so whatever you think would catch more fish just throw it in!!!

    I'd like to get in on this one. There are no rivers on Whidbey so I tie mostly stillwater flies. I'll do a little research and see what might work for both.

    Oh what the hell, I'll jump in too. No better way to keep the interest going than tying flies when I'm not fishing. I'm gonna tie up a little bead head nymph with an ostrich herl wrapped body. I forgot the name, but tumble it in a stream or hang it down in a lake and you'll catch fish. I dub the herl together and reinforce it with the tying thread and it comes out more durable than the herl alone. I might rib them or just let the fuzzy body do the work.

    Just finished tying a dozen. Little glass beads, fuzzy ostrich herl body, I've used them and I can catch fish. You anglers with some skill should do well tumbling them in current or hanging them in stillwater. I'll send them as soon as I get the address.

    Looking through the boxes I think I will tie up some Zug Bugs. They have worked on the few rivers I have fished and they account for some nice stillwater trout as well.

    Swapmeiser Connor H., I mailed mine to you today at mid day. They should arrive at 2255 in a day or two. No need to send one of my own back to me, that should be two extras for you plus a bonus bug or two.
