Those look deadly A.J. . Can't wait to try one in L.I. Sound. And there my favorite fish color. Great flys!

I'll tell ya Laurie, I'm digging these flies, a lot. How do you fish them? Drift, swing, or strip them?

All I ever need for inspiration to get tying is to browse through this thread. Some killer flies.

I am tying up some of my Mallard and peacock Nymphs and some Swordtail damsels for the lake this weekend (ill get some pics up later). Rumor has it the damsel hatch has been going off intermittently and once it goes full bloom Davis Lake can produce some nice bows.

DShort, if you get a chance I would love to see a SBS on that bunny sculpin. We have sculpins in the river here and I bet it would be a killer Truckee River pattern.

These ties are amazing. I'm looking forward to your SBS vid. Hoping that it's a YouTube, as I have capability to download and save them, so that I can access them even when I don't have a good internet connection.

The flies are amazing. I would love to see how you tie your Dabblers.
