Hey guys. Im fairly new to posting on this site. Its helped me become a better fly tyer and fisherman. Lately I've stepped my tying up a notch an tied several copper johns. Ive mastered the wooly bugger, girdle bug, double bunny, san juan, plus all the larva stage nymphs.

I was going to post a photo or two of my copper johns but I dont have a photo host account set up yet. I do have a bunch of pics of my flies along with the copper johns on my fly fishing site, the link is in my signature.

My next flies on my list to master are the lightning bug, pheasant tail, elk hair caddis, and adams dry

edit: Id really like to post photos directly to this site. Do I NEED a photobucket account or is there another way I can upload from my computer? edit: NVM I found the answer on this site. I will post some of my recent flies.
