I'm game either way, but 2 of the same pattern or one of 2 different patterns?
You know, whatever you guys wanna do! Ill probably do two of the same just because I like my pattern so much, but if you want to do two different ones that would be great. I'm kinda surprised this didn't get more interest. I thought everyone loved a big juicy stonefly
Ill be tying a variation of this pattern.
I'm in if you'll have me. I'll tie up my variation of the Clark's Stone. I don't tie a pretty (to people) fly, but it's my goto when waters such as the Deschutes have been pounded into submission in the middle of the hatch and they start getting a little more selective (low-riding, easy casting, very buggy).
I think I'm going to try to do one salmonfly pattern and one golden stone pattern. I'll be at the vise today so we'll see what I can come up with.
I will be at the vice today.It looks like we are doing 2 flies either the same or two different patterns.Am i correct?
You got it. Just send two patterns same or different!
Got mine ready to go!
Those look great! Can't wait to get them. I sent you a PM with my address
Here is my offering.
Nice one Shackleford!
alright, don't judge until you slay the trouts with it...
It's my Clark's-ish stone. This is geared more towards Salmonflies with the larger size, and darker moose wing (sorry, photo's a little washed out). I'll tie up 5 of these and 5 with a lighter wing to look more like the goldens we have out here on the Deschutes. I've actually had more success with these than any other fly out there, even after the trouts have been pounded into submission by the hoards of other anglers...When you fish it, lather the entire thing up with floatant and go to town. The more that wing gets spread out, the better it fishes.
My only judgement is a good one. That looks buggy!
halfway there...just need to set aside another evening for tying...never an easy thing with a 3 yo and a young dog begging for attention all of the time...
