    I know every one is busy with the holidays right now, but I figured I'd give this thread a bump for some new entries, All submissions welcome!

    awesome, I did a set of some hoppers I'm pretty proud of for the holiday swap earlier this month, porterhaus ended up with them, maybe he'll post a pic for you to see, I'm to deer-haired out to tie another one right now.

    I'll post a pic in the next couple days. Got a hardcore happy hour tonight, so taking pics afterward would be a bad idea :p

    one more bump for submissions before decembers over. I know theres a lot going on this time of year so I figured I had to pick a theme that everyone could come up with a fly for. Tie up your favorite, or pull one out of you box and get a pic posted! otherwise Ill have to choose between porterhaus who was the winner of the month before last, or kelvin who I believe has already won in the past, not that thats a bad thing, I just wanted to have a little more variety.:)

    Here's one I use a lot. Quick and easy to tie, no need to keep it neat, the scruffier the better, I think! Sits in the surface film, and works great on Italian spring creeks.

    Hook: Partridge #16
    Thread and tag: Sparton (About a 10/0) Green
    Wing: Elk-hair
    Dubbing: Dark Hare's Mask with guard hairs teased out

    Here's mine...

    It's a larger softhackle in October colors that was proven on late sumer steelhead this past season. Tied on a #8 heavy wire hook. The last photo shows the scale of the fly better.

    Thanks,
