My project for today was 1/2 doz each of the Kauffmann's Freight Train, Polar Shrimp and black Gordon patterns for one of the 5 new boxes. All done with that now I'll see what kind of trouble I can get in with a little freehand no recipe stuff LOL

Have you tried it weighted or beaded?

Not yet, but I'd just do a black tung bead and do everything the same. The vinyl body and flashback do help it drop through the water fairly quickly though.

Shrimp tie.

Keep refining!
For myself I found it very rare I settle for how I first tie a fly.
I'll tweak and tweak till I feel it's as good as it gets for the intended target and the casting situation.
Going bigger and heavier with the fly.
I dropped a toad on this tie yesterday. I'm going with a larger size basically a little more hook and body.



One that did not get away on the Ghost tie...

Here's a Spruce as it's tied now. Back in the day we never tied with the rib that has been in use since the late 70's early 80's.
