Lately Ive been practicing some Mrs. Simpsons waiting for my winged wets supply's to get here. I figure that these look meaty enough to attract some medium bass large gills and crappies.

Very nice tying indeed, nice minnow imitation

Waterhen bloas (BWO emerger ) for me
Kamasan B175 16-18
Pearsall's #4 (yellow) silk, one side coated with cobbler's wax to give hint of segmentation and olive color
Hint of grey fur dubbing
Waterhen soft hackle

Thanks guys. We'll see if it and it's better looking brothers/cousins will work in the spring. I watched both of the football games today and tied a bunch of soft hackles mostle purple or orange bodies. Some peacock herl thoraxes, bit only a couple though.

Fun stuff. I'm looking forward to testing them out...

thanks Larry, I have to trust the labels on the fur pieces as I've never actually trimmed hair from a wolf (seems curly for wolf hair), but that's what it said. Same with the carrabou and that one certainly didn't look like any pelt patch Ive ever seen. the hair ends are very blunt. I don't have much opportunity in the past to use these so gave it a go. I also don't tie many streamers but I'm headed to a major brown trout stream and needed some. I think the tails a bit long and I'm afraid of short strikes but I can trim it down stream side if that occurs. Fun little tie none the less so thought I would share.

Finished my Chicken Hawks for the Great Lakes Steelhead swap
Click the image to open in full size.

And started my dries for the dry fly swap - Here is the comparadun, size 18
The wing is a bit too long on this one, so i'll keep it for my own box, all the others have shorter wings.

Default Re: What have you been tying today?

been trying(key word trying) to tie a new Cray fish fly. Don't normally use these for bass but I guess I would try. Using number 2 hook. dumb bell head, hackle, dubbing, and thin skin. Tied about 10. first eight were terrible, Last two were ok. Try to get pics up later.
