      I guess nobody is into Dragon fly nymphs??

      900, here are two other variations I tie, using streamer hooks instead:

      The first one's body is built up with dubbing and ribbed with D rib, then dubbed the usual way but hackle is used for the legs instead.
      The second one's body is built up using embroidery floss - the stuff used to make friendship bracelets, that I may or may not have stole from a certain friendship bracelet making individual... Another option if you don't like the segmented look of the floss is to just dub on top of it - that way you aren't trying to build up a huge ball of dubbing, you're just laying it on top of a sturdy foundation.

          They work VERY well in the lakes during summer.

            Good looking variations i like the looks of the embroidery floss one. Any time you want to get together let me know always down to tell fish stories and tie some bugs.

                Should work well for fishing on the surface! I fish them on top sometimes, but mostly sub-surface.
                Another surface fished variation that Matt at 3-Rivers was doing is a deer hair version. I'm not sure if he is on here or not - if he is, maybe he'll post his?

                  It should suspend I did 20 wraps of .25 lead. And the foam should make it act injured. We will have to see gonna go drop it in some water....... and verdict is she sank and wobbled

                    Pretty cool...
                    So many patterns, so little time!!


                    I've had a couple tying get-togthers with a few friends out here in the valley (they also occasionally troll this forum) at my place - I'll let you know next time we think we're gonna have one. It's usually only three of us or so. You're welcome to join us!

                          Last weekend was our last weekend of tying for the winter... Too bad too, I really enjoyed it, and got me out of bed early on Saturdays!

                          I play guitar, so I got the new Stratocaster for Rock Band 3, the one that is a real guitar and you play the song for real - that has been keeping me up late as well... What are you playing?
                          Who would have ever thought video games would be keeping grown men up so late... Maybe we need an XBox subforum?? Lol.

                            they should come out with a fishing game about alaska too, then we can talk about it on the xbox sub forum!

                            I have been playing homefront..........decent game.
