    Were you smoking grass while tying flies? Just looking at that fly gives me the munchies.

    No Gene....It should work four times as well! Just curious, but what were you thinking? I wonder what a trout would think about this, just might be the next hot pattern?

    Gene, that is awesome. you should tie one of those that is 4 different chironomids,like different colors rather than the double that is all the same color.

    Yes, but I tied four different patterns on the same hook. That's the hard part :D

    (I wasted some perfectly good tying material and a long shank hook all for a joke -- I suffer from a humor curse)

    Hi Gene,
    No, you didn't waste the materials. You went for the "funny" and we (and hopefully you) enjoyed it. Many thanks. For your next trick, tie a Callibaetis nymph, emerger, and dry on the same hook.

    That first pattern should be named "Foreplay".

    I would suggest "buffet" or "smorgasboard", perfect for the indecisive trout that just can't make up its mind what's for lunch.

    Man that is wild! I am with Cabezon, Royal Fork or Chuck Wagon....

    I started to come up with names for Stonefish's theme, but none were appropriate for the forum!
