    Oh! I really like those!

    Either one would do real well here on the Salmon River.

    Quite intuitive! I actually did tie these and about 3 dozen others for the Salmon, which I hopefully will get to use on the 18th! Suppose to be a banner year and each year keeps getting better with more conservation. Winter has become my favorite season to swing flies.

    Cool!

    Yeh, the Salmon River does keep getting better and better. Conservation certainly has A LOT to do with that as you say.

    Good luck on the 18th. River was a little high last week but has been falling and should be just fine for fall Steelies. Wish I could go, but I am stuck here in Diamond Point, Lake George splitting firewood for another week at least. Maybe I can get out Saturday afternoon on the lake for a few hours and target some big lakers on tandem streamers. We'll see.

    I have had good luck with the egg sucking leech patterns in recent years with the fall Steelies. Your blue tube style is a super good one. Hope you have a nice trip. Feel free to e-mail me if you have any interest in spring salmon fishing here on the lake in mid April.

    Both awesome looking steelie flies! I wish I know how to tie them, much better than spending 5 bucks apiece for them...

    Pulaski, but cancelled and WORKING (sucks!) due to high water flow 1,400+ cfm and winds. Little to busy to make the drive up for one day and not have better conditions. I'll wait, I like dead of winter fishing better anyhow, so no rush. I do have the itch though.....

    1400 CFS is very good water. I'd take that any day on the Salmon River. Then again I had a boat on the SR.

    I'd very much like to see the water level drop and if that happens this coming week, I'm definitely going up the following week. Enough with keeping customers happy! I bought a new reel, a Waterworks-Lamson Arx 3.5+ and need to get some line and go enjoy!

    Anything below 750 CFS is just not fun.
