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.

Alright fellas. I got everything packed up and I'll ship this week. I took a pic of the flies, but it's a shitty iPhone pic, so if one of you photogs want to get all photo nerd on em, please do.

Awesome stuff all around, fellas. :cool

I haven't had a chance to breath this week. Working ten hour days, trying to finish a rental rehab and got a 900 month pregnant wife. I'll get them out as soon as I can. They are all packed up, just need a half hour to get to the post. My bad fellas.

No problem WB. It's my fault that everything slid. Drinks on me if any of you guys ever get in the SW FL neighborhood.

This fly "was" nothing short of outstanding for me the past few years in high/off color water. Sadly by way of an extremely large fish with big teeth, large trout or just wear and tear it was retired this past weekend. Either way the back half of this fly is embedded in the jaw of the fish we never saw but buried a 9wt to the cork.

G... I'm going to need a dozen more of these ASAP!

Someone in the ‘belt go tell senyo his shit sucks for me please.

This really pleases me. I need to start fishing those colors more in said conditions..


General recipe:

With size 2 b10s- black marabou tail, lateral scale flash, chart schlappen, palmered to front over black dubbed body, small clump of reverse tied black artic fox, chart legs. Whip it

Link it to a medium fish skull shank. The most important step in this fly is to palmer some lead wire on this shank. The weight in the middle of the fly helps the back half keep momentum and t-bone itself when the deer hair head slows down the front half first. Marabou, chart schlappen palmered over black dub, reverse tied black fox, rubber legs. Whip

Connect to size 1 b10s with no room for beads. Clearly with something other than senyos bullshit. Marabou, chart schlappen through black dub, artic fox, chart legs, all while leaving 1/4-1/8 left for the head. Put a pair of chart medium eyes at the very front of hook. Use black deer hair for head, and make it kinda a mix between a zoo cougar and a drunk and disorderly head so your first strip it gets depth, and doesn’t just slide on the surface. You don’t have to spin in, just stack two clumps on top of the hook and one small clump on the bottom.

G,
I was out with Tim when it broke. He was the hot stick that day & then took his turn rowing. Brad had your fly fishing because it was the thing that was working best & had a workout already. He hooked a pig, still not sure if it was a brown or a northern, I've hooked pike in this specific hole before, and like Tim said, bent the 9 into the cork then just popped free. He nearly cried. Senyo-FTG for a few reasons but never use single strand wire going forward please, for your own sanity. I think the fly had caught so many fish over the last season or two the wire kinked &/or wore a weak spot, 16 lb tippet didn't break. I lost mine to a snag a long ways back, but thanks for that recipe, gonna tie some asap.
