Default Some recent tying!

The Striped Bass season has ended here in MD, so some folks are turning their attention to various panfish species. I spent some time today tying up some flies to be used on perch & Crappies in our tidal rivers & in some of the state owned ponds.

I had recently purchased some of these small inline spinners, something that works well with either a fly rod or ultra light spinning gear.

I had these Aberdeen hooks, which are quite inexpensive, but good hooks for panfish. These are South Bend brand, likely made in Korea, but surprisingly good quality & sharp. This assortment ranges in size from about a 10 up to 1/0. I only used the sizes that looked to be #4's. A good size for panfish and one I use frequently. Unfortunately the pack is not marked for the sizes.

Here's the end result in some favorite color combinations.
