lol that has a magnet on one end for picking up small flies, pulls apart and has a needle and also serves as a nail knot tool. Though I will try it on teh next fish I get and see if I can knock him out with it as well.

Misfit Midge #18
By varying the colors, this "midge" has proven very successful for Midge, BWO, & Caddis hatches.

Another quill body midge #20.

Had to post it because an accident created a nice element to it. I spilled a little CCG Hydro on a piece of, dark gray, open cell foam (small soft foam blocks used in shipping). I noticed it looked pretty natural & buggy. I cut a thin piece off of some fresh foam and used it for the wing pad, put a drop of ccg hydro on it and this was the result...

With the winter season fast approaching, I needed to tie up a new nymph/midge box. Mission accomplished.
