can you glue those paper JC nails to mine? Those are like the clip-on tie of the fly tying world...
Good call. If I tie them in just right you get a really nice spin which works great with the rubber legs. Maybe I should add a blade too.

Plus maybe a bead in front of the stinger hook.
i put a bead in front of the hook on all my flies, then i throw away the fly part and flush bobs.

Im leaning towards my current hot fly. 1/8 ounce jig head with pink wiggle tail, i'll palmer a hackle round it so you can fish the fly water. It's killing the shad right now, steelhead are dumb they'll eat it for sure.

Guaranteed 2nd place behind steamin's bead fly.

Funny you say that... met an "avid steelheader" while cooking for a fundraiser dinner last year. His "thing" was to go to asian hair salons and sweep up hair for his fly ties..... had to be asian though... no other hair would do. :vomit

Think I just threw up a little in my mouth. Although it screams euro jigger to me. Maybe the thin hair gets down .0047832 seconds faster than the guy using store bought poverty-dub.

Maybe I’ll book a trim at that shop to imagine the look on his face when he sees dutch-ginger mixed in with his usual jet black.

I think that’s the plan. I PM’d RD and GS, RD says he’s scared of post offices (understandable, and I’d like to add secretary of states offices to that shit list) and GS tells me instagramming and fctp’s are taking up too much of his time these days (could be his words, could be mine).

I’m happy with a sixer.

Those are hot skates btw

Sounds good to me.

I’d gladly welcome both but with Randall and GS on the bench the quality standards will be lower, and my bugs may pass for respectable.

Would anyone believe me if I said I have started flies for this?
