    not sure that has anything to do about getting OLD but it is a SMART idea!

    Poor quality materials and tools are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.

    If you heat an Exacto knife blade over a alcohol lamp or cigarette lighter it will slice right through craft foam. With a little practice you can get really fine tapers that way.
    The best way to a fisherman's heart is through his fly.

    Default clear creek slayer

    I am not sure the best spot to post this sort of stuff... it looks like folks do it here too...t

    A few years ago on the fourth of July weekend I was up near Mt. Evans ( a fourteen'er in Colorado),fly fishing with a friend at about 10 or 11,000 feet… we lived at around 8,000 then…and the weather was a pretty nice Colorado summer day…when we finished hiking to the stream we were wanting to fish , the weather took a turn for the worse…spitting snow, and pretty cold…I was on the streamside near a beaver dam that formed a pond. I was trying to adjust my choice of pattern I was fishing, and thinking the grill at home looked pretty good when a huge Adult Caddis landed about 3 feet from me…I got a chance to study it for a while before it took off…I started fishing some dark caddis bugs in about a size 12, the biggest thing I had…and it was like a switch turned on…match the hatch…Qed…



    The pattern tied above is as close as I can come to try and imitate what I saw…its on a size 10-12 nymph hook for extra length, I used some gadwall back feathers for the sides/body, and some Mule deer fur for the hair wing…two moose mane quills for the antennae…and a short rooster hackle for some legs…the body is dubbed with some buffalo wool in dark brown…more visible from underneath. This bug has been a real “go to” in still water situations…or when the trout are really picky…its similar to some of the other sedges I tie up…but just for the darker variety…one friend thought I should name it the “Clear Creek Slayer”…

    Love the cut of your jib silvertip. Those sedge wings and caddis patterns look deadly. Really like your choice of colors and the mule deer touch.
