Wow, those stoneflies are spectacular, I can just see a big old Brown chumping down on those flies! I really like the mohair look on the body.

Lefty Kreh says "give em the groceries"! That would qualify as groceries IMO!

Good looking fly!

I would buy a dozen of those. Man you will be the guy with a bend in your rod during the Salmonfly hatch this spring

Nice work

Thanks all..

I'll post up a pic of Jacklin's Salmonfly I tied for the deer hair swap soon. I really like the looks of it. It's cool.

Bob Jacklin did a great job with his fly.

While I can normally figure out fly recipes from what I see why don't you post the recipe for all of us to use. I love this pattern!

Yeah, I'm with you on that! We're supposed to get another good snow tonight. I have to go out & work in it! I really like cold weather, but am starting to think that winter should only be about a month long!
