Hi,

What type materials do you have there? If you want to tie dry flies, make me a Ginger Quill and a Light Cahill. That will keep you busy for the night

When I'm bored and want to tie for "fun" I like to tie big stuff and vary colors. Steelhead flys, big hoppers and stones, foam and deerhair. 4's, 6's and 8's.

Don't forget to make one of these: *DOUBLE* Articulated Streamer

I tried it a couple of days ago...I havn't made a second one yet and I'd like to make one with a deer hair head; I'd also like to make it in olive with some flash, but I can't find my olive zonkers; swear I had some....

Please whip one up, I'd like a second opinion on these monsters!!

When you finish your traditional standby's, and some of the great patterns from the archieves here is another idea, foam hoppers, cicadas, beetles, spiders, ants.
