Opening Day Flies
« on: March 31, 05:48PM »
I set down late this afternoon and tied up a couple of flies to fish tomorrow morning for the opener:
                             
                           
                                    Bow River Bugger, Muddler Minnow, Rocky Lake Muddler,
                                                        Black Ghost, Mickey Finn







Hey Mr. Burns ....notice the body on the Black Ghost is floss ....I can do floss most times I choose not to  ;)

Bahaha!  Nice work Mikie, looks great!  Now tie up a marabou for him will ya'?   Good luck tomorrow!

The charm of fly fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.

Thanks guys I don't tie many trout flies anymore, used to include them in my commercial stuff but gave it up years ago. Once or twice a year I shake the rust off and tie a couple for me....its 180 degree opposite to tying salmon stuff for me.

On another note I'm going Monday for 2-3 days to fish some Eastern Shore river.....should be fun as I'm going with a couple of Hook & Cookers  ::) ::)

Nice work Mike, if there's fish around you'll find one with any of those.
A salmon is a moment of beauty known only to those who seek it.

No fish by me today Dan but one of the meat mongers that was there landed two 6" on a shad dart....he must like them dry cause after he snapped the necks he propmly layed them in the sun on the bank to "season"  ::)


Headed to Fall River early tomorrow morning and then down east for a couple of day trips from Bob's house ... it will be a nice get away ;)
