What kind? I really like nextcast lines but this was a rio and pretty nice.

More importantly, please tell me that’s a salt or tidewater fish above!

Pretty flies. Bout once a year I get a hair to tie some spray patterns, takes me 3 or 4 to remember I can't finish a head that doesn't look like dogshit, then ill cut the materials off the hooks, put the hooks back in the package, and forget about it until I see something like this. Now I'm thinking, those look easy enough. And so it begins again.

I love hairwings. Simple to tie, look good, and fish well. I came across this method of tying the wing in first a while back. It lines out your proportions right from the get and makes for a clean head. Been using it ever since and its upped my summer fly game a bit.

That wing method does work great if your wing hair is long enough to lay the butts along the hook. Less great when it's not and you have that odd placed drop off. Reversed wings do kick ass though.

My 79yr old pop still crushing it on the river. Still hates to float, he taught himself to fish in the Catskills before they flooded the “good water”, loves to swing a streamer and has been known to drop a bead egg as a dropper in the fall for some “hogs” between the lakes. Never seen him happier or grumpier as when he is on the water. love him because he’s my pops obviously but all the more so because of the love he instilled in me for chucking flies.

You had me at tits. Need a fawn distress call for spring bear, are yours for sale? I want something with soul, not some piece of chinese plastic from cabelas. Mitch said he'd buy me one. Something about mending international relations.

Though I'm assuming austrian currency is like, 'roo knuckles and crocodile teeth, or some shit.

I would be interested in a Whitetail Grunt... if'n a man could make such a thing.. I'd be interested in a price on that as well...

Got one final trip in for the year with the gang last week at the local tailwater.....the truckers were cooperative, and nicely colored.
