Free hand. It really isn't that hard once you have done a few.

Yeah Hugh! That's a swinger right there! Flytier, I like them all wicked ties! I especially like the Bloody Butcher, knowing how well Picket Pins fish, I can only imagine what a bit more color does. I bet that just keeps'em biting on bright days.

Nicely done. You might also want to add some #14 Copper Johns in black and traditional to your list. Those have been working really well for me this year. Maybe one of my top producers.

That'll work. The problem is going to be getting fishable water and or getting there. More rain on the way Thursday - Friday. Snow possible Saturday. Temps are dropping next week too, I'm hoping that doesn't mean the beginning of the lock up. Since you're in State College, you have loads of great opportunities to fish where you are. The fish even eat at ambient temps of a balmy 9 F.
