Default Re: What have you been tying today?

Glad to see these threads staying alive, I am putting up materials for making a bunch of Santiam Spectrum wets like the one below. This was the prize winner last year in all round performance here. The first one cast landed a big char and that fish was followed by many more char, trout, sockeye, and a few silvers. Incidentally all the fish were caught on just two of the flies. I needed to use a second one after the original began to come undone. My best guess is that the first fly landed about 25 fish before things got loose.

This is the one that was used first;

As the season moved along the Skykomish Sunrise, Thor, and Freight train along with my Bush Doctor pretty much finished out the duties of fish catching. I need to make a few of my Nine Three variant also because they get torn up on my local trout stream, so it's about time to get busy up here.
