    I think I'm going to try to do one salmonfly pattern and one golden stone pattern. I'll be at the vise today so we'll see what I can come up with.

    alright, don't judge until you slay the trouts with it...

    It's my Clark's-ish stone. This is geared more towards Salmonflies with the larger size, and darker moose wing (sorry, photo's a little washed out). I'll tie up 5 of these and 5 with a lighter wing to look more like the goldens we have out here on the Deschutes. I've actually had more success with these than any other fly out there, even after the trouts have been pounded into submission by the hoards of other anglers...When you fish it, lather the entire thing up with floatant and go to town. The more that wing gets spread out, the better it fishes.

    My only judgement is a good one. That looks buggy!

    Good! Starting the next set of 6 tonight. I decided to tie up 2 different patterns instead of everyone getting duplicates. They'll be out the door soon enough....

    I'm all tied up. 10 flies, plus whoever sends the best flies will get an extra one of mine!

    Is everyone okay with tying two more so we can let in mayfly aviator?

    Sure, since I tied up 12 already. I forgot I was 1 of the 6.
