    bought up some of the pro tubes...dig um..can slide on weights from the bars to 40 or 60gr blobs...and tying these...

    Some might consider um a waste on what I plan on using them for but I don't care at this point...just getting ready for summers..

    I think we are looking at cooler "spring like" conditions through the month of June - when the water starts to drop and warm its purple, red/black and orange/red. Then move to the smaller stuff and lighter tips/floating lines later in summer.

    These are large and moderate size bou's with a little flash - fun for the NW river I will focus my time on.

    I don't think that trilobite/horseshoe crab lookin' thing will fish very well where you're going in the fall. Just sayin'.

    I really like those flies in your second pic..especially that green and black one for some reason..
    when you tie red/black and orange/red...what do they look like?

    Golf - When I get a few tied up over the next week or so I'll send you a photo.
    They are just a simple one segment marabou with an ice dub or anglel hair butt tied in long with a dubbing loop. Add some flash and I collar it with Blue Eared Pheasent.

    I have not been tying a damn thing. I'm lucky that in the past month I've fished a lake and tied a few flies onto my tippet.

    Golf, I'm really digging that intruder style tube; 3rd row down and last fly if youy start from left. Since I like it, I want one. Perhaps you'll get a special treat in return. :thumb:

    Leroy, tell me about that last fly. Do you use that as a lifter or dead drifted??
