Long story about these flies. I was in New York last week on vacation with the family. The wife and daughter went to some shows and art museums; I enjoyed the food, and, er, looked for fly shops.... OK, I didn't look too hard but did stop at the Orvis on 5th Avenue. I had seen these flies on their website and really liked the look, but seeing them in the store inspired me to tie a few variations, photos here. Pretty basic poppers with a yellow belly but an interesting mixed yellow and olive main body, which I wanted to give a try. The version the store carried looked like a Taps Bug with a short, simply tail; I tied one like that, then I tied a mid-sized popper with a larger, busier tail with a lot of rubber legs, which is more like my normal bass bugs. Both of these are tied on Mustad 3366 hooks in size 1/0. Thought you might be interested in seeing them, sorry for the weak photo's, my camera and photography skills leave something to be desired.
