Most welcome Andy, looking forward to seeing your fly boxes once you have them filled up for chum. Tie up some and show!

Andy, folks cut and splice lines "frankenlines", add extensions to their small profile fins "frankenfins", rig their fishing craft in very creative ways "frankenfloats" so why not be happy with flies that you've blended from different materials or patterns "frankenflies". I bet if you go out one day, fish those "frankenflies" like you mean it you'll be surprised at the results. Good luck.

TMIB, those look interesting, I've got several like the top one. What is your body wrapping material for that "Chum Turd"?

Click the pictures for full details on the tying patterns. In this case, it's "Dyed Pearl Diamond Braid" Chartreuse, I bought it from Orvis. Hareline Dubbin also makes the same product, only they call the color "Fl. Chum Green."
