    ok i wanna share with everyone some of the flys i tie and a few that i didnt...

    #1ok the first one is that little foam spider that the gills love(up here anyways)
    #2the second one is somethin i thought up.. and i have seen some nice bass come after it and some BIG gills( it is like a wooly bugger but it has a red chinnel(sp) body, purple marabou tail and purple strung hackle for bugginess
    #3 is a little hook with green chinnel(sp) for the body... because i always see gills nipping at my bobber stop when i dont have a bobber on.. so i thought well heck i might as well try it out

    As an old old old fly fisherman and fly tyer I must compliment you on your developing tying skills.The skeeter Larva was very good.It would be better to place the flys on a basic white background instead of in your hand as the focus is slightly off.Tying itself can become an obsessive hobby and expensive.If I am not mistaken I have a bunch of equipment left some where from my Colorado days.If I can find it I might just send it on to you as my eyes are to old to tie anymore.We created flys as we needed in the good old Rocky mountain days for rivers like the South Platte, Gunnison ,Arkansas,Blue,and Taylor.Often we didn't even give then names per se and the best size 18-20 nymphs I ever made for the South Platte was simply called the "White Thing":big_smile: :lol: :eek:oooh: :smile2:

    they are looking good there Jeff I remember the days of when I could see good enough to tie a lot of flys I really need to see if I can see them good enough to tie em anymore myself.

    Looking good!

    I packed all my fly tying stuff away in May thinking I was going to have to move, so if I ever get off my butt and pull the stuff out I will take some pics.

    I would recomend placing the fly in a vice with a light blue or white background. It will really show off your tying skills alot better.

    Keep tying!
