          Now how to use them. Taking a needle feed fishing line thru needle, push it thru the center making sure you go thru the thread core tie on hook and hit the water. Enjoy!

            Very cool.
            You could also thread the tippet material through while the original needle is still in it if you wanted to save time while on the water.

            I'm loving these posts of yours 900... I think I'm going to experiment with these tonight by trying to sneak some lead in there somewhere to eliminate some of the need for a split shot.


            Note that your instructions are upside down in each post (step 2 before step 1, step 4 before step 3, etc...) - you may want to think about adding them in reverse order in each post.

              good idea on the lead part gonna have to go to the vise now, as for adding the tippet before you tie on the yarn... i thought about that but i like the idea of free movement of the fly. i tried to set up the step by step to read from bottom to top

                      Sweet! Are you sure it would be legal during fly only time before August 23 or whatever it is?

                      You know your not catching any fish when you start talking about the weather...

                        i dont see why not being its basically a glo bug, just not attached to the hook.

                          I think it still is classified as an attractor. It needs to be attached to the hook to be legal. I tie these on small tube flies rapped in lead. But that's usually only garcia's for steelies.

                            So ive spent the past hour on ADF&G website trying to find out more info. this is all i could come up with.

                            -Gear for fly-fishing-only waters: In waters designated as fly-fishing-only waters, sport fishing is permitted only as follows: (1) with not more than one unweighted, single-hook fly with gap between point and shank of 3/8 inch or less; (2) Weights may only be used 18 inches or more ahead of the fly; (3) Beads not attached to the fly are not allowed

                            -artificial fly means a fly which is constructed by common methods known as fly tying, including a dry fly, wet fly, and nymph, which is free of bait as defined below. Materials and chemicals designed and produced primarily to cause flies to float or sink may be used on artificial flies.

                            -artificial lure means a lure that is manmade, free of bait as defined below, and is used to attract fish for the purpose of taking them, and includes artificial flies.

                            I could not find anything that warrants it illegal. Im not trying to call you out Slayintrout, just sharing what ive found. Now i do have one question if its not live bait or dead bait or even scent doesnt that constitute the lure/fly as an attractant thus making them all illegal? Weather or not its directly attached to the hook it is man made by method of fly tying which does not have any scent or any inhancements other than raw yarn to catch fish. If some one finds any info please let me know. Dont want to go and get in trouble.

                              Those are some very nice artifical beads, 900!

                              I think I'd have to side with Slayintrout on the legality in flyfishing only waters. I'd be skeptical to use it - I think the big difference is it's not attached to the hook, and therefore falls in the "attractor" category. But then again, some intruders and tube flies likely wouldn't be considered flies, either, by that logic - so who knows :confused:
