I don't know what you got but you got what it takes. Your tying just keeps getting better. Very appealing to my eye!

Not to be too redundant, but I'm tying again many of those I posted earlier, plus a few more.

Parasol Emergers:

My son came back from a trip up a local trib and said the cutties were only taking a flav extended body, so I came up with this one:

And a few of the following:

Scuds - olive and amber:

Beadhead, flashback Pheasant-tail nymphs, sizes 16 and 14:

KG's Deep Purple peril Midge - size 14:

A bunch of these, both weighted and un-weighted - "Big Ugly" Rubberlegs - sizes 4, 6, 8:

On most of the waters I fish throughout the year, with the exception of a local spring creek, I usually start the day with a three-nymph rig under an indicator. This rig is usually made up of three of the flies I've been tying recently and pictured here.

I start with the first fly under the indicator is the "Big Ugly" Rubberlegs in the color shown, usually weighted unless I am fishing smaller streams less than 4 feet deep. Trailed off of the bend of the hook with an 18-inch piece of fluoro tippet, usually in 4X or 5X to a beadhead, flashback Pheasant-tail nymph. I then affix another 18-inch tippet of 5X fluoro to the hook bend of the beadhead and attach a KG's Deep Purple Peril Midge. This is my normal nymphing setup for most waters and I catch a lot of fish on this rig and these flies.

That fly as pictured with that color combo is the most effective I've found. A true fish vacuum.

For years I tied and fished a variety of stonefly patterns, never really hitting on one that I could consistently count on, until the Pat's Rubberleg. This variation is way different than the original, and is the one stonefly pattern I now use. If I ever change up it is with a darker color combo when the big salmonflies are moving in the river.

I forgot...I've been tying up some bugs specific for my favorite winter water - Idaho's Big Lost River.

Improved Shop Vac:

A lot of different sizes and color combos of the Zebra Midge:

Also, many different sizes in bead-head and non bead-head Brassies:

And a few of these midge emergers for when there is some topside action - KG's EPF Fullback Midge Emerger:

As well as some of these BWO emergers for the same reasons - KG's CDC Parasol BWO:

I've got a fair amount of other patterns I'll be tying for myself and friends and family.
