    Micro tubing on one, red wire on the others. I put a coat of clear UV resin over the bodies.

    I typically check "New Posts" but if this thread isn't among them I go looking for it. Great thread indeed!

    The first thing that popped into my feeble mind was "Flappers," Brian . . . and I wasn't even around during the Roaring Twenties, lol.

    We’ll see how they swim Lou.
    It would likely help if I fished a river more then once every couple of years. :D
    I’m really liking using the Bruiser Blend and Laser Dub. You can only tie so many clousers.

    Today has been the perfect kind of tying day. When I made it out last week I discovered how tore up my fly boxes were. After a year of fishing they are in desperate need of restocking.

    Started off with a winter favorite.

    More restocking. Man this fly has been killer!


    Still getting a feel for my new camera. The macro mode on this thing is pretty impressive.... But it sure brings out the flaws in the UV job lol
