I like the direction you are going

My friend J.Farmer @midnightcustomflies spun these for me after I pitched him a pattern. He then made what I asked him 100x better

Crayfish with composite loop on a 30 mm opst shank. Rear station propped with a foam shoulder that maintains that "fighting" posture.
Wow. Those should be magnets for large smallmouth too. Beautiful!

Recent streamers and swim tank R&D

Here are a few flies that I've been working on. Most are string leech/graboid leech variations. Been playing with different composite loops- mixing craft fur, marabou, arctic fox, ice wing, etc.

I borrowed a swim tank over the weekend from a local shop (thanks Rocky Mtn. Anglers!)....much more interesting results than doing figure 8's in the sink.

Sorry for the crappy photos....they were kind of an afterthought.

Open to any comments and suggestions...thanks!

trout flies

i'll bite , not sure if the fish will though .i tied these up last week as per "soft hackle journal blogspot" website . steve graciously provided the patterns upon request . one offs for now , we'll give 'em a swim and see what happens. ice is out and the snow has melted for now , shouldn't be too long . they must have caught fish for someone sometime , eh ? irish flies for st. patricks week ... notice i said week , a cheap excuse for an irishman to party all week ! :smokin:
if you want to see the flies as they should look , check out steve's website .
thanks, jim
