Yes I have! It is good stuff!! I haven't tied the Frumpy yet. It looks pretty effective though. I might have to tie some up for my upcoming "trophy hunting" trip in a couple weeks I have been stocking up on articulated streamers for the trip. I get goose bumps just thinking about throwing big streamers in fall/winter!

I've yet to have good luck with big streamers

Oh well, they are still super fun to tie!

Make your way down to the Little Red and White River between October & March...your luck will change

I don't fish for spawning browns but staging ones are actively feeding & fun to catch. January & February are my favorite times. The spawn has ended and both big browns & bows are pretty active then. Can't wait to get my GoPro and get some good videos!

Yeah I know where they are and have had a few follows but nothing to eat...yet. I'll be at taney in two weeks and there is a good chance of getting big browns to eat meat so I should tie some mongrels, however I really want to catch on my my moopy zoo lion fly I'm developing

Man you keep throwing them and you will get bit. I hear Taney is a great place to fish. "moopy zoo lion" now that is a name for a fly!!

Looks great guys, after reading the Snowshoe Rabbit thread and watching the video on the emerger I decided I needed to tie up a couple. No Snowshoe so I subbed bleached Elk in its place.
