Default What have you been tying today?

Just so we can keep up with each other and this addictive habit.
What are you working on today?
Me: I knocked out a couple small decievers, a slew of Y2K bugs, and worked on trying to adapt a "hornberg special" to match what I have to tie with... and some ultrawire worms.

Feel free to post pictures, I would but do not have a camera.

Happy Tying!

Sounds like you are busy, I haven't tied since last week. I am still waiting for a new supply of feathers to reach me from the UK. I figure when they come in I'll make some new flies for this spring.

Developing a trico-type pattern over here in the #20-24 range. Trying to match an unidentified insect spotted last weekend. It was driving the trout crazy!

Had 4 left over tungsten cones in a hook size 10 so I tied them up into #10 Rusty Slumpbusters. They look yummy.

I have been attempting to tie Salmon flies. Still new at it, and still need a ton of practice.
