Sorry Sean, a wooley bugger is about the only bigger fly I know how to tie. I'm accustomed
to using/tying size 18 - 24 midges and so forth. The WB is the only big fly in my repetae as of right now. I don't mean to disappoint.:beer2:
BT - my fav moving water winter pattern is a size 18-22 tungsten candy cane midge. MONEY!
midges are excellent winter patterns my man. :thumb: especially fished behind a larger stone... and WBuggers, well everyone knows they catch anything that swims. im interested in your little oil twist.
besides all that im in for whatever. you guys tell me what you want.
the midges or the leech? ill get started tomorrow. :beer2:
Oh what the hell, I'll jump in too. No better way to keep the interest going than tying flies when I'm not fishing. I'm gonna tie up a little bead head nymph with an ostrich herl wrapped body. I forgot the name, but tumble it in a stream or hang it down in a lake and you'll catch fish. I dub the herl together and reinforce it with the tying thread and it comes out more durable than the herl alone. I might rib them or just let the fuzzy body do the work.
