hehe..halfway done with my leeches and we're still like a month away
Chef, if your leeches are anything like your cookies I think we are all in for a treat. I hear from a good source that he's gonna be hawking all your outings for the cookie benefit! Triples or not, get to tying...mine are done! I've got some other swap flies to get moving on, so I can't sit back and wait.
I know Ed... damn priorities are out of wack. Gotta tye and fish BEFORE going to work.
Ok Camo Clad Warrior, I'm ready for pm with address.
Hey mumbles i just remembered that the radish bash is this week. If you would rather deliver them to me then that will work as well. That goes for anyone else...if not it is all good and standard mail shipping will work just as well.
oopsy, a (sneak) peek preview picture leaked out onto the thread....
not done yet, obviously
lookin good 32....
thank you senor. you needa get crackin' on your leeches....
I know I know. I will probably spend all day tuesday tying. Got to get some materials this weekend
ah that is true, i keep forgetting...
Recieved the first set of flies....Nailbender rocked it out with two great patterns.
that's awesome. got a pic? or is it staying top secret?
I'm still messing around with how I want to tie these tail hook leeches. I found a better way of tying the rear hook in so it stays in line with the body. I also decided to wrap the zonker strip at the shoulder area a bit to give it a little more bulk in front. I'm undecided yet if I want to keep the conehead I put on or just tie off the front. The cone will obviously help it sink better, but it seems odd to have such a shiny head along with the dark mottled body.
what do you think? Conehead or not?
i personally like the conehead but ultimately it's up to you man
The fly will fish better with the conehead.
