I like my terrestrials with a dropper so heres a couple simple ones, purple beetles and UV spiders
whats the back on the beetles
hanked lite brite over foam coated with liquid fusion
Interesting spiders, Pat. Has some promise
They look nice.
Remember hopper dropper hopper hopper dropper is the next level guide ish
You know that's all slapstick comedy, right?

THAT made me smile.
Pat, that reminds me of the "Hippy Hopper" that I tied for the last foam-fly swap..tie-dyed foam and rubber legs...
wow pat, those beetles and spiders are rad. i'd love an SBS on the spider
Hook-#12 glo bug
callibaetis uv ice dub
stack the moose mane and clip of just the skinny part
tie them to the hook in this order
foam-dubbing-foam-hackle-moose mane-whip finish--brown marker for the stripe--super glue to kink the legs.
Have fun with it, use different colors and shapes. they look so buggy I dont think that matters that much, but they sure look cool.
As for the other patterns I will be using on the yakima , I want to think outside of the norm and try to stumble upon something great. So if I fish the lower canyon much I think I will try some mice this summer. Also, I have a snake pattern snake pattern might find its way to the end of my line. This of course will probably only happen when the usual dry flies arent producing
iv'e been hatching some plans to try for some big cutthroat on mice this year. ive tied a couple up and they look even better than the one store bought one i got.
Cutties will eat mice...
Cool idea with the grizzly tail
Derek, you just made my night. iv'e been dreamin of big cutties and mice lately after watching Eastern Rises. the hemorrhoidol mouse looks like a good one.
Simple to tie. Stack some antelope hair, shape it. The tail was 4 inches long. Man, did this thing swim. Cool story, too....
