Another group of nice flies, Kevin.

I particularly like your upright emerger. How much of that fly is actually underwater when it's cast out? Up to the hackle? More?

It only goes upto the hackle.that was the way I designed it,rather than have the hook on an angle I felt it took the fly better with it upright and gains a better hold on the fish.(now theres a topic for discussion)

They sit very well in the water though.

Beautiful flies. Don't worry about boring me. If you wouldn't mind, feel free to post recipes for the flies! I love learning new patterns.

Thanks, Kevin. It helps a lot.

So you use a wet fly/nymph hook on that pattern. You could go lighter on the hook with the b170.

I'd be interested to see how it would float with the lighter kamasan, or, perhaps interestingly, with a dry fly hook. I'm thinking that sitting higher in the water could be a fishing advantage.
