These are headed for the mail. Now I can finally tie one for myself so I'll have a total of three for this season.

Awesome selection there Mike. I notice they are all split wing. Do you tie and fish all your bombers with the split wing? I know they sure look better that way.

My own personal bombers, all three of them are split wings. Generally I will tie them that way unless the person I'm tying them for request the single wing. I find they looked buggier with the spilt wing.

hard to believe you only have 3 bombers in you fly boxes. I gotta ask what are the color combos for your personal bombers?

When I say three, I literally mean three flies, not three different color combos. I have a Papa Smurf, a dark green with chartreuse butt and a white body with orange hackle. I'll probably add a few more this year as they are starting to get purdy ratty looking after a couple years use. I need a natural deer hair with orange hackle. I'd go to the river with a Papa Smurf and a green and chartreuse and nothing else any day though.
