Default Re: The "Shout out" thread....

Hello Dorian,
Good question. I have seen a pattern with upright curved tails before, the entire fly was actually made from a Mallard flank feather with just a little dubbing at the thorax area. If I can remember how it was tied I will tie one and post a pic for you.
Sorry, I cannot remember the name of it though.

Not sure it would really be neccessary for the tails to curve upward, because from the fish's viewpoint looking upward, all that is needed is an impression of a tail or a trailing nymphal shuck.



Have you been out on the river lately?

Dorian;

One of the hot flies on the Snake last year was a Parachute PMD Extended Body. It looks great, could not get the shop owner to tell where he gets them.
Did not have them in anything but the PMD. The fish loved them and I bought them everytime I was in the shop.
The shop is new here in town. It's called The Snake River Angler Fly Shop. Not sure if they have a web site or not. I'll check on that. Try and take a photo or two of one to post here and see if anybody has a source.

Cool. Thanks guys.

Well Fysh/Davo....what's the verdict for this weekend? You guys gonna make it for a day or two?

Right now I am contemplating whether or not to join a soccer league that has games every Monday night. If I don't join that is one more afternoon that I free up to either fish or work on getting my yard in. Tough decision. Leaning towards not playing this year.

Dorian my truck goes in Thursday for the recall. Unless they run into a problem I will be there on Friday. I'll Bring a couple of those extended body PMDs and see if Joni can figure out how the tier does the extended bodies. They are not the usual type.

Not looking like it right now, gotta work friday to try and catch up, then Saturday is going to be spent siding my shed. It will be nice to finally have it done.

I was really looking forward to meeting you folks at the Expo, now we're just gonna have to make a fishing date and go float....perhaps one of those 'Killer Burgers' at the Fox's cornered afterwards, Dave said he would buy!!

Ha!! Wish I could but we are a man short this weekend at work. So I'm going to skip some sleep and make the expo but then I have to shoot back in time to catch the night shift.
No single malt for me. Hope I don't get the DTs. LOL
