    All of the streams from down there look familiar AJ but I don't think I've been there. You did a good job with the pictures and I am a dog lover so I understand that part too.

    Ellicott Special as in Ellicott Creek? Or as in Ellicottville?

    I think you're doing a really good job of catching yourself buddy.

    Definitely a great looking fly. What size are you tying them...have you thought of using fish skulls instead of the cone head. They are a little more expensive, but definitely look great on flies. The smallest fit hook sizes #8 #6 and #4. I believe you need to use a straight eye too. Maybe i'll try some tonight if i have the materials and post a pic.

    Thanks for the comment! I'll try to keep the fish coming, but no guarantees there, you'll have to live vicariously through the people on the forum who actually catch fish

    Looking good A.J. you post it I'll be sure to read. We only have a three month window to fish our local river and streams which is Dec to Mar 1, the little lake 5 mins from home has closed for the season, nothing left to do except unspool the reels, clean the line and store it and get ready for steelhead in Dec. Saw your steelhead hen, nice fish.

    You have been a busy tier by the look of this post. You are already light years ahead of where I was at after I started tying flies. No doubt you will become an artist at the vise.
