That brown is downright piggish! Your buddy is going to be totally jaded with that as his first brown!

It's funny because I was telling them that there are gigantic slob Browns in here and an hour later he slams one. Yeah, you're right, he might go forever before he even lands one close to that.

James, here is the pattern I've been using lately, I tied some in a light scheme last night as well. I was going to tie a color scheme that directly matched the nymphs I've seen under rocks lately, but I figured for now I'd be best with just dark and light. Three fish so far on the dark scheme, looking to test out the light scheme soon.

Interesting but cool tie. I love the legs on those.

The only thing on the legs is that I have yet to master getting them to go in the right directions. But then again, a lot of things on a lot of my ties end up going in entirely unintended directions, such is the curse of a novice

I'm not much better haha. If anything I could be worse. If the fish take them, I'm happy. I'm going to post my report from earlier today.

Looking forward to it. Haven't devoted any time to steelhead this weekend, headed out after inland trout tomorrow!
