    Wow, nice flies and good creativity accross the board. Keep em coming guys, I see I am not the only one who likes to experiment, and substitute materials, wish I had every material I would ever need, but, I don't....

    Davie Mcphail pattern variation
    #16 CDC bubble Grannom

    tail - green foam ball
    body - muskrat
    wing - CDC bubble, coastal deer hair
    thread - 8/0 brown



    Up through the week after christmas I was tying midge larve, pupa, dries and went looking on youtube for tips. One was a bubble CDC midge by Mcphail and in cleaning up my desk to prepare, I had some dear hair sitting there. I tied four of these size 14 - 20.

    As you may or may not have heard, I'm a big fan of Walleye fishing with a fly rod. Where is this Feb spot you are talking about? And do you have a recipe for those flies?

    In north central pa on the tioga river. Flies are just hook of choice, bead chain eyes, chenille and wolly bugger hackle furled and tied in as tail then as body. (I carry the hackle here in my store)

    I tied #16 Adams on Saturday. Reason? I haven't tied traditonal Adams in
    a few years, and just wanted to. Parachute Adams are all I've used for so
    long, but I'll have to give these a go for 2010.

    Frank: Very nice work, like you I can't remember the last time I used a traditional Adams, seems like I always go for the para adams now days.

    Thanks Larry ! I had to get re-acquainted with tying in upright wings. I
    was quickly reminded that tail length does matter with upright patterns, so
    the very first two flies of 2010 do not appear in that picture.

    Nice Adams tie Frank.

    I think that pattern will always be my favorite dry fly; para or classic Castskill tie; #'s 14-18 will get the job done almost every day in the Spring up here in the Pocono Mountains.

    Only 3 months and 1 week left to opening day!
