Default Show your flies!

We have a long standing thread of warmwater fish pictures, so how about a picture thread of all the flies you have been working on lately! Folks can ask questions and possibly get some tips, pointers, and inspiration as well. I'll go first.

I have been busy tying up lots of Cypert Minnows for this spring. They can be tied with different materials and colors but the basic pattern is the same. I've taken everything from bass to catfish with them. However, these little things are DEADLY on crappie and white bass! They have saved me from being skunked on many trips. The best thing is that they are easy and quick to tie, and they are durable. Even after being chewed on by gar and catfish, they still live to fight. They're like the Rocky of flies. I'll be sure to have a ton of them with me when the crappie and white bass come around!

I've been trying for carp with various crayfish patterns. But have not caught any carp, just many bass, and a catfish. This pattern is a bit 'stiff', but looks realistic enough to kill! Caught a 20" rainbow on an olive version too...

leeches for stillwater and creeks, warm or cold. clockwise from top left Marabou egg sucker, furled dubbing w/conehead, and two squirrel zonker leeches with coneheads.

I'd never heard of a Cypert Minnow before, but they really look like they'd do well. I imagine you could vary the size and catch all kinds of fish on them. I'd be interested in throwing them on a sinking line to some of the MDC brush piles here in Missouri for crappie.

LMAO. This thread tickles me. After seeing what you guys tie, mine look like theve already caught 40 fish before they ever hit the water. That crawfish looks like something another crawfish would try and mate with. Great job guys.
