I am tying cracklebacks. They are great flys you can fish them wet of dry but i like fishing them as wet. They are also trout killers where I fish in Missouri. Could I tie some of those as extras?

I didn't mean to cause any confusion. Please tie whatever you want. It was just a thought.
I can't wait to see those Cracklebacks.

Hi Fly Kid;
good deal on the cracklebacks; They're one of the mainstays in my flybox, for just the reasons you stated. I can't wait to see your variation.

I really like the idea of the extra flies.

I'm fine with 3 extras of the same kind or 3 extras that we all think might be useful "nationwide" for trout fishing. I know that organizations like CFR generally target trout fishing for the people in their program; not sure about the other organizations.

Since most of the people that would benefit from these flies won't take to the stream until mid-Spring, it might make sense for us to make the extra flies as early season mayfly/caddis/stone patterns; maybe dries; since they're easier for most new fly fishers to see; particulary those that may not be fully ambulatory.

What do you think?

Let's just say everyone who wants to tie 3 extra flies, can tie whatever they are in the mood for. That way nobody has to worry about what type they are. All the flies will be welcome by the organizations nomatter what the fly is anyway. Sound good to everyone?

Just FYI on the extras: they use more common flies for teaching on the water. They also try to give each participant a gift box of 4 - 6 flies and they use fly boxes with flies for raffles to generate additional money.

So, all of your ideas are good!

Sounds great; so our three extra flies should be something kind of general and all purpose?!
