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.

Thanks PBR, yes, cinnamon turkey. I haven't gone to tubes myself. Like the idea of a more ethical hook but just have a hard time going there. Call me a traditionalist.

I hear ya - and understand the reason. I still tie a few every now and then when people ask for them. I just have no interest in fishing them anymore.

Ethical? Ive always figured a #4 or 2 choob hook is nicer on the fish than a long shank fly torquing around in there. Maybe I'm missing something though. They do look much nicer on a nice shank.

Anyways, as I talk about eithics here’s some double-hooked chestnut lamprey imitations
