    For me, it's mostly streamers lately...

    kinda like this generic...

    along the same lines...

    a little larger...for some reason, I never really fish white. That'll change this next year.

    I've become a firm believer in multi-colored flies along with mottled materials. I feel it gives that illusion of extra movement.

    First flies I have tied in about a year. I enjoy hanging out at the tying desk. 6-pack!

    Been tying alot of big stuff for lings and rockfish. I pretty much have all the flies I need for next year, and then some, but they are fun to tie and Ive enjoyed playing around with some new techniques.

    More than anything lately Ive enjoyed learning and experimenting witnoh Bob Popovics style of using bucktail to make large profile saltwater flies. Its alot of fun learning a new technique and its amazing the flies people come up with using the techniques. The east coast guys tie some amazing saltwater flies.

    ah yes, the true test is when they get wet.

    great looking flies. Those just gave me an idea.

    Ya they don't look too impressive until they get wet, then they just come alive. They look amazing in the water. My attempts truly dont do the tying style justice, but the fish probably wont care.

    Playing around with some bunny. Nothing special but Im quite certain it will put fish to the boat.

    (Tying flies for rockfish is a great confidence booster....I could probably catch just as many fish if I tied the red cap of my super glue container to a hook and fished that, but I like to pretend every fly that comes out of my vise is just gonna be rockfish magic lol)
