Haven't posted flies in sometime: Been getting in on the striped bass fishing while its here and getting caught up with due-outs. My for the delays guys - you are not forgotten though. Meanwhile I received two packs of Bob Beverka Classic Salmon hooks. One for myself , the other is headed to a gentleman in Redding, CA. Here are what variations I managed to put together for NorCal/Siskiyou steelhead:
Artificial fly Fish hook Fishing lure Spoon lure Fishing bait

Variants of; a Blue Charm, a Brown Fly, and something shrimpy.

Killarney & Tay - fast becoming a favorite to tie.

A couple Roganesque mixed wings.

Earliest variation I know of B C's Mark Canfield's Low and Clear Spider.
Hair Blue Turquoise Bait Fishing lure

Finally Jimmy Hunnicutt's "Sweet Loretta" getting in on the action: No time for makeup. :hihi:
The heads could use another coat of lacquer - maybe for the recipient because Im no good for a neat finish.

Again to those of you who I owe : your "due-outs" are out.

Best regards,
Vic.

WOW !!!
Some remarkable tying here Vic :smokin:
I couldn't pick a favorite out of the bunch if I tried, my head would hurt :chuckle:
I never tried the 2131 .... I've starred at it for years but never pulled the trigger to purchase. I may have to now :)

Thanks guys,
There is a series by Stu Farnham of Syd Glasso speys tied on a No. 2. It's very close to the low water hooks Glasso used in his flies. Garry Tanner's Celtic Beauty is tied on a Bob Beverka hook also. I've never hooked Steelhead on one of these but someone else knows what he is doing for sure.

Scott - there is a "Honey, do" list and then there are "Hey man- would you" that with joy referred to as due-outs...;)

Nice flies on my favorite low-water hook. I just wish it was offered in #1/0 as well for the larger size of Glasso spey flies. As was mentioned, and I've posted in other posts before, this hook is very close to the style of hook Glasso tied his spey flies on.

Mike,

You really ought to do yourself a favor and get some of this hook for your own tying. I'm certain you will like it, especially on low-water flies.
