Micro-bomber green machine variation on little scud hook. Tricky little fly to tie and clip. Patience.

A lady perch "jig" fly, hopefully it will catch some nice perch when the water gets cold.

Last season i got my PB perch at 1875gram (4,13 pound) spinfishing a jig, this year we are going to try to get some on the fly. Already got a few on gurgles but they were only 10-12 oz

Wool Head Sculpins in olive & brown. These are a real diversion from my normal tying but they are also very effective for trout & steelhead here so............. Once I am finished I'll post photos of some.

I'm tying these Intruder style using a trailing Gamakatsu hook on 12 pound Dacron backing. I'm closing the barbs as I tie and that is a good thing because last night I really stuck myself in the left thumb (man those hooks are sharp!) I had to pull it with needle nose............. This articulated fly thing is tricky

First season of guiding has taken a toll on my nymph box especially.
Trying to catch up on Hare's ears, Copper John's, Princes, RS-2's, Micro-May's, caddis larva, etc.
PT, I like the glow midge larva, I've been doing one with pearl tinsel or just white/cream with olive wire. Guess that makes another use for the glo-bou!

Some more.
Feels good to be tying again although pretty much all I ever did before was wooly buggers.

I've been tying some of Mike Schmidt's Meal tickets for a brown trout streamer swap...they are getting there. Ard is right, wool heads are a pain in the butt for never having done them.
