I have been quite at the bench because I made enough flies between trips to last until the ice comes. I did make a few articulated flesh flies but didn't photograph them. I'm fishing Wednesday and will no doubt swing a little of everything, some attractors some sculpins and some with the flesh color. One of my favorite haunts had so many pinks this August that flesh is still coming down plus the early silvers are dying off right now.
If I come up with any remarkable fish I'll get a shot of the fly then
It's been a pretty autumn so far out here. I'm not ready to think about winter yet. Hunting season opens this weekend and hopefully still some good fishing to be had. But when the cold winds start blowing down from the North, I'll at the vise and working on featherwings and soft hackle streamers. (Sorta looking forward to it) Till then...gotta make hay!!
They are fun to tie and the options are limitless. Thank you Jerry French, Ed Ward and Scott Howell for a truly awesome pattern. The innovation in fly and gear design these guys brought will put them in the history books.
I don't tie them because I don't use that type of fishing for the dinky trout I catch..But man I sure think they look cool. Someday when I get a switch rod and start going after steelies I will start tying them...I just like the way they look especially with all the crazy colors.
