  • What's in your vise?

    Thought I'd restart Clarkman's well-read thread. This is what I'm using for bulls nowadays.

    You don't need no gypsy to tell you why,
    You can't let one precious day slip by.

    Looks great, do they take quarters?

      They take many, many quarters...

        I'm not sure if I had posted this up previously or not (probably did, but my memory gets worse with every passing day)

        My version of a Dolly Llama. I've fishing these a lot over the summer and into the winter and they've really been working well for me. This is one of the winter versions...

          It's OK Randy, we can't remember if you posted it either!

          I tied my first DL today and am trying to keep it simple but...when do you tie in the hair on your fly?

          Cheers, Stevie

            Stevie, are you talking about the black around the collar? that's the last thing I do. I'm basically only using it to hide the rest of my thread...I ended up liking how it looked underwater, so left it.

              Looks like a little sailfish. That would be something to see coming up the fish ladder.

                This is old, but it was still in the vice. I guess I need to get back tying.

                    Reposting to get full image instead of thumbnail (Thanks for the tips, Arlen)

                      J.R., I like that pattern quite a bit......simple, buggy construction.....I think you nailed the proportions too....love those Quigley crips!

                        J.R., this is my favorite green drake pattern, my version of the film critic, another Quigley classic......haven't used it on the Met, but plan to next year......this last spring, I had big fish on the D and Mac absolutely destroy this fly!

                          That's nice. What's the recipe?

                          J.R., I just follow the film critic recipe, except I do a palmered hackle and trim it....simpler

                        I decided to tie up some dirty azz nymphs for steelhead...adding enough weight in there to get down in pockety water of smaller streams that I often fish (without adding split shot) while still having enough movement to swing well at the end of the drift. Nice to tie something that I can bust out a half dozen in very short order...

                        Cheers
