    I wanted to try something I haven't tied before. I have sort of gotten in a rut of tying the same 2 or 3 patterns, especially streamers, all the time. So I did a little surfing and reading and found an interesting streamer with a little history to it. So I am going to tie up some Blonde Stayner's which is a variation on the Stayner Ducktail. Has a proven track record as a good trout fly in rivers and stillwater. I'm just getting started on them but should finish up shortly. Added a pic of the first one.

    Robast and Richard Torres,

    Your flies are in. Everything is looking great, I think that puts us at 8 sets of flies in.

    This weekend is the end of your tying time. Flies should be in the mail monday!!!

    After being impressed with the the first batch of flies i'm really excited to see the next batch come in!

    Has anyone already thought of their next pattern for March yet?

    I'm going to tie a cut-wing dun pattern, but haven't decided yet whether it's going to be a March brown or a dark olive.

    I found a cool hot-butt caddis with a sparkle underwing that has certainly hooked me, but we'll have to wait and see if it hooks fish.

    I am thinking parachute something. I need to learn to hackle a post better.
