    While working on my slide clips, I've been tying flies while the scanner is taking its own sweet time scanning the slides. This is what I have so far. Each and every pattern has a full-body and thorax shellback... including the leech patterns.

    I sure hope these things work because, as you can see, I have a ton of them!

    I planned to try them last weekend but the snow and ice got in the way.

    If the weather would stop flip-flopping around, I'd like to head over to a coastal lake this Saturday. Honestly, I think the shellback leeches have a good chance of working in the lake I plan to fish.
