whatcha tying?

kind of self-explanatory, right? We seem to have some impressive thread-wrappers that lurk around this board. let's try to keep your "first booger" posts at a minimum.

Tom, what's the tail on that CDC Caddis emerger?
Cartman: What's to understand? You get a boner, slap her titties around some and then stick it inside her and pee.

Kyle: Stick it inside her and pee?

Cartman: Well, okay, fine. Unless you don't want to get her pregnant, then you pull it out and pee on her leg.

That frog on the left is on a worm hook, with some dumbells underneath so it will ride hook up out of the weeds. I had tied some of these previously on that hook as well. These ones are on the gama skip hook. Has a perfect little bend for dropping they eyes in, and a bit more room for tying the front of the fly. I had never seen them before, but they were on sale for $2 a 6pack last weekend and I thought they would be interesting to tie on. Basically just a pseudo-clouser after that, nothing real original. Always good to peruse the gear isle.
Hopefully this shot gives a better idea of the hook.

NEKvt,

Have you fished that psuedo clouser in Saltwater? Looks a lot like some of the bendbacks i have been fishing and I like the concept. I'm really curious about the hook-up and landed fish ratio, if you've field-tested it. In traditional bendbacks, you lose a lot of hooking and holding power. Do those hooks open up or whaaa? What percentage of strikes do you hook?

Good looking flies! :cool

This is one I just started putting together in the last week, have not gotten a chance to fish it. March in Vermont offers up minimal fly tossing possibilities. That said, I have fished similar flies tied on the offset worm hooks. I didn't notice a change in the hookup ratio but I guess that is possible. I was going for the weedless nature of the bendback without having to bend the hook (lazy). The skips have more room to tie than the offset worms so I am hoping I don't notice anything that makes me turn my back on them once the ice gets off the lake.

I don't think this hook would hold up well in the salt. It has a pretty light wire, and it definitely is not stainless. The hooking myself ratio with these in the vice is near 100%, with 88% of those resulting in some bloodletting. Damn gammys are sharp
