Looks great Brian. I'm really gonna have to look into giving that style a try.
I’m kind of a hack at that style but it is pretty fun to tie different stuff rather then the usual.
Meaty, like a swimming drumstick
Swap flies going to Australia, cdc & elk, orange Kamasan #14 hooks! Next a very special pike fly, then some #32 dries, then flat out tying salt flies for Australia trip in January!
About 5 months till topwater season starts again
Sea-run Buggers. Thanks to @Nick Clayton for his YouTube video on how to tie them.
First attempt at the Ripple Ice Deceiver
Next time I need to lighten up on the Ripple Ice. I could see this working well as a single hook in chartreuse and pink or a smolts color.
Brian, those will make some big fishy mouths very sore.
A Horning take on a High Carb Minnow from flyfishfood. Tied on a size 8 Daichi saltwater hook.

It's bite size!
Fish hit it so hard, all of their spots fall off!
Don't know why it refused to embed the first image. Oh well.
I really like a lot of the patterns on the flyfishfood site.
I've caught some nice fish on the low fat and belly scratcher patterns.
I have been experimenting with ties like your bottom one a bit. Not as nicely tied or brightly colored. I was thinking they would be good during chum fry time. Do you fish that pattern year-round?
Continuing on with my quest to restock my heavily used patterns
Nice flies, Nick.
