    Been doing some tying and thought I'd share because I'm bored. Nothing crazy special, just some flies. Share what you've been tying too, I don't mind.

    Nice! I'd give the last one an equally cute name & make it my tying bench mascot.

    Bloody Snot Bubble comes to mind. Okay, maybe not so cute...Baby Pufferfish?

    But what a cool assortment of flies--you have been busy. That coho Clouser looks particularly tasty... Nice work!

    X2 on Baby Puffer fish. Nice job on the EZ tubing minnows and the streamers.

    The top two I've not fished with yet, but they seem fishy. The coho clouser is a proven winner (and is more chartreuse than it appears in the photo). The little streamer will work too.

    The baby puffer fish/bloody snot bubble might catch fish, but it won't see water. That one's just for fun.

    Of course, any fly, if put in front of enough fish, will catch something!

    I tied some EZ Body patterns a few years ago for the sound. I tied them very thin to try and have them look like sandlance.
    I fished them for a bit but didn't catch anything on them. Tied on a clouser and caught a coho shortly after. Likely a pattern confidence thing with me.
    I liked the look, but mine seemed very stiff with little movement or motion on the retrieve. I plan to put them to use on some bass this spring once things warm up.

    Please let know what ends up eating your EZ Body patterns.

    I noticed the stiffness as well; hopefully the longer one with the dumbell eyes will wiggle a little, but who knows. The black/blue one has heavy wire around the hook, so it should jig a little as well. Might have to try a sequin in front of the unweighted ones.

    Time to experiment; I'll let you know how they do!

    I like braid for bellies bit not really as the whole body. Also a few brass or glass beads will give it some weight. They tend to trap air and float. And the beads will also rattle together which might help when targeting bass or musky in murky water.

    Ok, been back at the vise, just dickin' around mostly:

    Tried to get fancy:

    Wanted a little green and grizzly:

    Felt shrimpy:

    Had to try a spade-style fly. I find these really fun for some reason.

    And then there is this guy, who seems fishy as all get out:
