    All, for an update, I'm in progress, but I hurt my back pretty bad. I'll be flat on it for most of this weekend but I'm still confident I'll get my intruders done and out on time to Arthur. I can periodically get up and sit to tie one up as a break from lying on the dang floor. I hope you all are fishing your prototypes to great success over the long weekend!:thumb:

    If you would stop slouching while you are typing at the computer screen to make all those posts, it might help. :D I hear turkey and stuffing is good for the back.
    Seriously though. Take your time and get better sir.

    While the girls were hard at work in the kitchen making an awesome Thanksgiving dinner I got off the floor and made some tying progress. I could not sit too long, but I whipped out a few prototypes to get me in the intruder mood then got about half the flies tied for you guys. I hope you'll give 'em a swim and a steelhead will give 'em a hit and stretch your line. The lighter is just for size reference.

    Orange ostrich herl, chubby chenile, sparkle strand yarn, more orange ostrich herl, orange schlappen hackle, black schlappen hackle and a pair of jungle cock tiny nails. Tied on a 35mm waddington shank, red barbless gamakatsu octopus size 4 hook on a 50# doubled spider wire loop.

    Tying has commenced! I am halfway done, and plan to finish the rest tomorrow morning. I am tying a few extras and plan to test them out on the Skagit on Sunday. Hopefully the test results will be positive! :D It's a little hard to see all of what is happening with this fly in the picture, but they look quite fishy to me, and I am positive they will do the job.

    Sunday? Testing flies? Matthew, those do look damn fishy to me. Did you say something about Sunday?
