ah yes, the true test is when they get wet.Been tying alot of big stuff for lings and rockfish. I pretty much have all the flies I need for next year, and then some, but they are fun to tie and Ive enjoyed playing around with some new techniques.
More than anything lately Ive enjoyed learning and experimenting witnoh Bob Popovics style of using bucktail to make large profile saltwater flies. Its alot of fun learning a new technique and its amazing the flies people come up with using the techniques. The east coast guys tie some amazing saltwater flies.

Ya they don't look too impressive until they get wet, then they just come alive. They look amazing in the water. My attempts truly dont do the tying style justice, but the fish probably wont care.ah yes, the true test is when they get wet.
great looking flies. Those just gave me an idea.
