Some flies I've tied

Recommended Posts

Here's a few pike and bass flies that I tied this evening. One of my favorite things to do in the summer is fly fish for northern pike. ju8aqavu.jpg some clouser minnows. yme9aga8.jpg a few rabbit strip leeches. u5uby2u5.jpg a small bait fish pattern.

Very nice work

 

I used to do some fly tying myself but I mainly did wooly buggers and San Juan worms

 

Those are awesome clouser minnows

That's impressive even for a 8wt

 

Largemouth on a 5wt is like freight train with a toothpick

I bet even small 12 inches fight well on a fly rod

That's ultra ultra light man that would make a nugget size bluegill feel like 100lber

I built a midge vice and tied a few flies with feathers. I wanted them to float but they would always sink. I still have the vice around here somewhere I think.
