        I'm sure there's a critter somewhere that would eat it. Where, I have no clue, but somewhere. Nicely done.

          Encore?

          E-K-C,
          Okay, real nice job tying that fly. But what I want to see next is the rod you make that is going to cast it. Maybe like a 200wt ?
          Nice job, Steelguy

THAT FLY ROCKS. Oh and Im sure there is a ling cod or halibut out there that would be more than happy to eat it. :eek:

                OOOOOUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCCHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!


                Man I bet you could clear out a spot in the combat zone at the russian with that baby. A couple of flips and have a fish spit that baby and let it go ripping past a few of your "close" friends. You could have your own little fishing hole. Ok I changed my mind. I WANT 2 One for camp one for the river :eek:

                  Well you asked for it and here you go............
                  This time I went with a nymph--- It is made on same size hook-----
                  Thread: is the same -gill net cord ----------Tail: same bailing wire---
                  Body: Beaver and Wolf--------------Rib: Speaker wire
                  I figured the weight of these things I had to make something that sinks.

                  If you look in pic you will see a small #2 Hook --Hares ear next to it. Keep tying and enjoy life........................ E-K-C.......ERIC

                    Sweeeeeeeeeeet

                    That is some great stuff Eric. Great work on a large scale too. I love how you put the actual fly in the picture to compare it next to the big one. Great work and put a smile on my face today

                      I have an extra anchor pulling buoy you could use as a strike indicator if you would like. Those would make a great addition to sombody's wall. (Like mine)

                        You've got some incredible crafting going on there!
                        Unbelievable! Whoppers, indeed!

                        I'm thinking there's a market for those babies!
                        Thanks for sharing!

                          Nice

                          Stick that on the end of your gaff
                          I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

                            I'm guessing you don't need a magnifier to tie that one.
