Hey Vise Bum's,

I'm turning out Golden Demon streamers tied Cains River style for the upcoming trout and salmon runs. 1723Next come Silver Demons then I'll return to some of my own patterns for spring steelhead.

Post up a picture and show me what you're up to. If it's a steelhead pattern I'm always interested in seeing them.

My shoes. :wink: (Sorry ard, I couldn't help it.)

Mostly big streamers and carp flies. Redneck rabbits, Kiwi Muddlers, Plowsers, and rubber legged stuff. I think this year will be one of targeting bigger fish and carp especially when not hosting friends and family on rack-up-numbers kinds of days.

Already acquired part of a 7wt rig that I'll be reviewing thoroughly for y'alls' enjoyment.

GRHEs right now, as some say that is a good little brown stonefly nymph imitation. I have another thread I just started to see if there are better ones or more recommended LBSF imitations, but this is what I can tie right now being a beginner and all.

I'm "test tying" a few #10 Black Nose Dace for the upcoming streamer swap. That tinsel is slippery stuff! I can feel some SHANN coming into the picture to help lock in the body!
