Default Re: What have you been tying today?

Today, I haven't really been tying per se, I've been trying to carve some small bluegill popper bodies to paint at a later date. The ones I've been carving have looked to be perfect size on a 300r hook but I'm not giong to mount them on there, what's a good hook, prefereably something relatively cheap?

Today I tied two dozen Jumping Jack Blacks in size 22 (Yat: Thanks for posting that great looking pattern) and a dozen Andy Kimís "Yong Special" in size 22.

#20 Zebra Midges in olive with red wire (I guess that's more of a tiger midge)

Glad you like that pattern Larry, I'm sure you'll catch fish with it, but I call it Jumpin' Black Flash. This is a Jumpin Jack Black -

Gearing up for a trip to the San Juan mid month so it's stock up on midges and beatis time.
The olive ones are Stalcups Beatis size 22, the red are Ptails size 20, the others are chocolate WD40s and KF emergers sizes 20-22

Oh man that was good, Yat. ROFL. He is "Jumpin".

Yesterday tied more KG's (yes our KG) South Fork Specials, plus two different patterns of Cicada's. Out of the two I think this was my favorite. A little easier to tie also.

Yat: Sorry about that, I just knew I was going to screw that name up, guess I should have looked up the thread before before posting.

For the San Juan you are going to want to use size 26-28 flies. You might be able to get away with 24's but I wouldn't recommend going larger than that.

Thanks Larry. I'll have to get some 26s I've got 24s. Can always use the others up here.

Yat: I didn't have anything that small either, but when I stopped at Abe's Motel and Fly Shop and bought a half dozen flies, everything he recommended was size 26 or 28.

I still have time to tie some more tiny flies since we don't leave until the 18th. I did find out from Steve, we'll be staying at Abe's.
