That's a neat SH, PT! I might be doing some of those myself. I really need to shoot a few partridge this year... There is a place just north of me (albeit across the border) that stocks them and has pretty affordable pricing for group outings...

Mitchell, that's a beaut! Between that and Eunan's amazing Vintage Claret (find the thread if you haven't seen it) I was inspired to venture toward the more classic ties. Now, I know little to nothing about these patterns besides staring at the beauties that Ard and Gary and Eunan, among others, tie up and post. I'm going to start reading more about them this year. However, I kind of jumped off the deep end here and threw together a quick one using some materials at hand, with some (very) loose inspiration taken from the Vintage Claret. The head still needs some head cement, which is hiding somewhere, but this was a fun attempt:

Now I just need to get to studying up on these before I have all the fly tying greats of old rolling in their graves as a result of my heretical thread-lashings...

Its only heresy if it doesn't catch fish, like the head man interesting!

I went on a Matuka ala Bash kick today.

Nice flies, WT! I especially like the green-barred ones, and likely so will Erie trib runners!

As I'm headed out on a bass trip, I decided to throw together a quick crayfish pattern, very loosely inspired by jefe's messy craw pattern. I wanted to have more obvious claws and a little more bulk, and due to my love of awful puns and wordplay worthy of rolled eyes, I present:

The Cray-m-Puff:

I will update later whether it is a success or not, but based on the name alone, I'm not expecting much

Nice!
if you're gonna read and tie these flies, i suggest Hilyard's Book: Carrie Stevens Maker of Rangeley Favorite trout and salmon flies.
Thats a good jumping off point. Plenty of patterns
