Some more great suggestions!
Rip Tide, that gurgler looks good. I just watched a Youtube video on how to tie the foam beetle wabi mentioned, and it looks like the gurgler is pretty much the same general thing only with a nice long tail. So I can see why you say it is an easy tie!
bigjim5589, I actually remember seeing your post about the inline spinners the other day. It was something I thought I should give a try. And I really like what you have to say about the crayfish. I must admit I have looked at a bunch of patterns online, and the detail they get into can be a bit intimidating. But I guess I forgot the biggest difference between trout and bass/panfish is that trout are much more picky about looks.
Since I have a ways between now and when the water warms up I think I may need to make myself a list of materials and start filling up some fly boxes so I can hit the ground running come spring time.
