Please post up what you will be tying... it would be nice if everyone did tie on SS hooks as they hold up much better.

David Old Chum,

Is there any chance that the fly you mention has a natural Fox Squirrel tail wing?

Like my Sea Run Cutthroat flies: "Chum Babies", that I dropped off at Troy's a few months ago?

See our Gallery for that pattern: "Chum Baby"

That looks like a sweet fly Bob! I am thinking that for a lighter variation, that Coyote could be employed quite easily....hmmm....

Im in with my Chum Baby.
Let us known how many to tie.

Mr Trout:
Is it really true that you have seven acres of prime Coyote fur for sale?! :eek:

That's okay...you can still tie flies in a body cast. :rofl:
One of the steelhead patterns that I saw a demo on at the PT Show is suppose to work well on Pinks when scaled down. I'll tie up some of those.

close bob... yours is more basic than what i had in mind but very similar. Mine thicker body, peacock overwing and quite a bit more flash but a very similar pattern. My old friend bill mcmahon tied it for me... That and one called the umpqua.
And why are you dropping flies off at troy's? tell him to get to work :)
on a side note where do you get your squirrel from? I need some for atlantic salmon patterns.
I'm going to be tying a little baitfish pattern with a mylar tubing body and a rabbit back that I have been messing around with. I'm sure someone has previously invented it and has named it, but I'm unaware of any common name. Here's a pic of a prototype tied on a #4. I think the eyes are too big and I should epoxy the head, but it's close to what the final fly will look like. If anyone knows if this has a name, I would be interested in hearing it. I will tie it in chartuese and/or pink.

I'll tie a "dougs ugly" or atleast thats the only name I know of... basically a a purple and yellow half n half... it has been good for cuthroats...

If we only get 6 people would you all be willing to do 2 flies? either the same pattern or 2 different?
