Dont Know What To Call It Yet...

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.

Post by mendthatshit87 » Wed Apr 09, 2008 6:41 pm

Heres a pretty simple tie I made that killed the last time I was in the Berry Islands...Lands soft, and has pretty good action. Dont know what to call it yet...Sorry for the crappy pics, but Im new to the whole taking pics of flies thing. enjoy

Also tried a couple beers I hadnt tasted before from magic hat, pretty good stuff.

Magic Hat's discontinuation of Heart of Darkness makes the balck baby Jesus weeps tears of sadness.

Looks like a nice simple but fishy fly. Angora?

adams- nice call on the Angora...picked it up in a local fly shop and was labeled "angora leech yarn" thought it might work on some small bonefish patterns so tied a couple and the bonefish seemed to approve.
The rest of the fly is just plain calf tail, sili legs, and krystal flash, simple but pretty effective.

Hero- this was my first time trying anything by magic hat besides magic hat #9 and I was impressed...perfect beers for spring

Why wouldn't they? Good looking fly.

And as for the Magic Hat, great beer! Except for the #9, that shit is a bit watery in my opinion.

Just looking at fly patterns for an upcoming research trip to Andros Island. Almost everybody talks about the "Ververka Mantis Shrimp"
Looks like that bastard Bob Ververka stole my pattern. That punk.

Call it the magic hat. And screw the rest of those guys. That's your pattern and that's that
If you end up with a boring miserable life because you listened to your mom, your dad, your teacher, your priest, or some guy on television telling you how to do your shit, then you deserve it.

I thought it was shit until Percy Darville pulled it out of my box and told me to tie it on back in 2003. I was in 10th grade.
