    You nailed it, the shuck sucks but is doable. I solved the problem while tying Rickards stillwater nymph patterns for lakes.

    Got most of mine done last night. I'm tying two patterns.... One is just my old standby leech pattern tied on a jig hook with the bead, the other is similar to a pumpkinhead in colors and design. Trying to stay away from what I think Ira may be tying....

    I'm so stoked to see what you guys come up with. Great swap idea.

    All done. Not very good pics. Tied the orange headed ones on my new Barracuda tonight using some hackling tips BigE was kind enough to share with me last night. I am really happy with them. Far from perfect but much improved efforts for myself. 2013-05-01_21-51-13_342.jpg 2013-05-01_21-54-19_801.jpg 2013-05-01_21-55-16_934.jpg

    Ordered hooks and beads from Allen today. I'll probably tie on a size 14 hook. Don't know what pattern yet..... really looking forward to this one!

    I'm all done with my 10, but watching Hans' video post on the Royal Lightning Bug has inspired me, so I hope nobody minds but I'm including an extra pattern with mine. Just thought that it looked like a cool fly to tie on a jig hook.
