    Does anyone have anything tied up that they could share a picture of..? Just curious what is being created.

    Cheers,

    I'll make you a deal. You post a picture of what you tied and I'll post a picture of what I tied.

    Thanks for the vote of confidence!

    I don't get to fish for winter (or summer for that matter) Steel, more than one or twice a year. I really enjoy tying, and go to the bench and live vicariously through the banter and post here and on the inter-webs to keep the fire fueled.

    I am well ahead of schedule for a Jan. ship date. Who knows.... there may be a second color scheme or pattern inclosed...

    Unfortunately I am not in on this swap but if you want to see my flees look under the “what’s in your vise” thread on the fly tying forum on this site and you will see what I’ve been doing for my hog snatchers.

    Just a little teaser. An "up the dress" view of my submission.

    She can be fished with or without the egg bead.

    Great minds really must think alike. Mine is a Steelhead Alley Emerald Shiner Hobo.
