Just so we can keep up with each other and this addictive habit.
What are you working on today?
Me: I knocked out a couple small decievers, a slew of Y2K bugs, and worked on trying to adapt a "hornberg special" to match what I have to tie with... and some ultrawire worms.

Feel free to post pictures, I would but do not have a camera.

Happy Tying!

Sounds like you are busy, I haven't tied since last week. I am still waiting for a new supply of feathers to reach me from the UK. I figure when they come in I'll make some new flies for this spring.

Developing a trico-type pattern over here in the #20-24 range. Trying to match an unidentified insect spotted last weekend. It was driving the trout crazy!

Had 4 left over tungsten cones in a hook size 10 so I tied them up into #10 Rusty Slumpbusters. They look yummy.

Today- I'm going to tie some #16 Butch Caddis after I barr some rubber legs.
Yesterday-4 #10 Doc's Twin Lake Specials (2 olive; 2 brown original).
Ea. day before that-#18 Biot Rusty Spinners; #24 Disco Midges, #24 Tiger Midges.
*Tied the Rusty Spinners to make myself learn how to split microfibbet tails that have always driven me up the wall.

Thank you Kelkay ! I have been tying for many years and have to say that I really enjoy tying spey and spey style flys. To me they are the most graceful looking fly with the long flowing hackles and swept back look.

I've been mixing it up this evening- a few psycho princes, a few kiwi and marabou muddlers, a few zebra midges...maybe some carp flies next.

Tied a dozen zebra midges Sunday and have since been looking for just the right material to develop a black carpenter ant.

I've been tying midges this week too.

*littledavid; saw on another thread where you mention a glossy black ant to use as an indicator. Have you looked at a "McMurray Ant"? The balsa wood floats like a cork.

Been tying up some pretty basic steelhead flies, but might tie up some dries for fishing the Deschutes next week, and probably a few pheasant tails.
