Re: It's Tying Time Again;
That sounds busy to me Larry, i haven't turned any thread or tinsel since fall. the blue flies have worked and that was actually a surprise because I use a lot of black, brown and gray for trout and other fishes. The bright colors are the norm for salmon but last spring I had lots of rainbow trout slam the Skykomish Sunrise. That was too cool, when I was a kid making flies like those and dreaming, there were no self respecting trout in PA. who would give them a second look let alone attack one. The blue sort of lights up in the water and the fish grab them. 2 or 3 seasons ago I had quite a week using a Bush Doctor which is just silver tinsel and bright blue hackle. it just took a couple years to work my way back to blue I guess.

Seeing your flies will be a treat Dave, when you get the leader material we'll have to talk.
