    Great now we can't fish her flies in artificial only waters because they have added scent. :) Smashed my thumb real bad a couple weeks back as I was putting my boat trailer on the hitch. Ended up missing my ferry in order to do some doctoring (lucky for me my wife is a nurse), I did manage to catch the next ferry and still ended up having a somewhat decent day fishing but that thumb did get in the way of tying for a week or so.

    Hope all heels well.

    Me too, I didn't realize I was out of the hooks for my bloodworm pattern. They are hard hooks to come by. I may have to order them express.

    Finished mine tonight. A marabou minnow with red hackle gills, and a black & silver buzzer with marabou gills.

    They'll be in the mail on Monday. Can't wait to see what everyone else sends in (so I can cannibalize your ideas for my stillwater arsenal).

    I'm getting close. 5 more to tie. I figured there will be a lot of cool chironomids coming from this swap (not my specialty) so I went with a bugger for my second pattern.

    Edit: all done

    Jeff Studebaker, I love that baitfish pattern and I almost put that chironomid in my mouth, I can't imagine how the fish will avoid it. Three tiers done and in and so far... man they are awesome.

    Wow! Thanks Ira! I feel like I still don't really know what I'm doing...just experimenting, trying to think like a fish. I don't have much confidence in my tying yet.

    So I'm gonna let your high praise go straight to my head.

    No prob Jeff, hey, where did you get the hooks for the chironomid? I've been looking for those same hooks for my bloodworm pattern.
