Matt, Those things are amazing. I saw the one at Rons and checked it out for about 10 minutes. Very nice job, I couldn't believe it. What is the price per pound on those babies. I just melted some butter as I don't really care for the cocktail sauce.
Hi Matt. These are beautiful. Once you start to use them be sure to let us know how they work. I'm OK with four hours for a Steelhead fly. When I go steelheading, I may only use 2 or 3 flies per outing.
Not that I am worried about losing them with the stinger tied hook point up, but I'm going to have time myself. I'll bet it's a lot less than four hours because first I tie several hooks, then I lead the tail, then tie all the rabbit stingers, then stingers to shanks, etc. Just picked up more colors to tie. Looks like we wont be fishing until next week anyway. Right now they are running about three inches long and weigh about 3 to 3.5 grams. The average Spey fly on a 1/0 or 2/0 may run a gram. These are for fast running water or deep water thrown on a skagit like line with T-14 tips. I’m just going to work these and see if I can get a pic of some Steel with it in his mouth before I start to work on a Wooly Buggerzoid, Hair's Earzoid or a complete line of Streameroids and Nymphziods. But D, the name will be credited to you.
