What's in your vise?

Stonefish

Triploid, Humpy & Seaplane Hater....Know Grizzler
Looks like I need more yellow flies in my box, as a matter of fact I don't think I have any...
Lou,
A really underrated color for the sound in my opinion. I’ve caught a lot of cutts and coho on yellow. Hopefully a blackmouth or two next.
May dad used to kill blackmouth trolling yellowish chartreuse hoochie.
I wish more materials were offered in yellow.

It is one of my favorite colors for smallies as well.

With all this talk of yellow from @Stonefish and the shrimpy fly posted by @Zak, it got me thinking. I rarely tie in yellow and I don’t fish shrimp patterns often - mainly because I find them tough to fish. Do I dead drift them? Strip? Twitch? Anyway, wanted something I could fish more like a streamer and came up with this. Promising - first one so I need to tinker but I think it could work...

Ooh, I like that! It's like a cool cartoon creature! As with a baitfish pattern I've been tying, I copied my shrimpy fly (with some changes, incl. swapping snowshoe in for the craft fur) from a fly I bought from Ben at Pacific Flyfishers. He's super helpful! I'm waiting for my floating line to get here and haven't fished the shrimp yet, but Ben advised floating line without much stripping or movement and letting it follow/flow with the current with enough tension to feel the take. I'd love to learn more about how to fish these leetle bugs from folks here who know! ~Zak

I got out today & had fun! Need more in this colour! This is a very old Finnish fly for coastal seatrout called Mulkkis, no translation found, but it kind of means Asshole! View attachment 219407 View attachment 219408 View attachment 219409 Tied on Mustad shrimp #2, Super easy tie you Sound boys might like! Original recipe is craft fur, i used marabou. Eyes & chenelle! Too easy to ty a heap!
I tie these in pink, orange and olive for surf perch. Orange with olive tail just kills them
