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 had 10 brass coneheads that fit a #10 well, so I tied up some conehead Princes using peacock ice dub instead of peacock herl. They look good and buggy!

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.
