Default Off the Bench

A few people posting current ties encouraged me to post a few currently off teh bench. I was trying to think how long I've been tying, think its hitting 52 years. Need to figure it out one of these days.

October Caddis


Deer Hair, extended body Drake


Shaky Bealy


Light Cahill


Doc's Caddis


Foam Drake


PMD

Keep trying, in another 52 years you'll get it right!

Just kidding, those are great looking flies. I've been tying for over 45 years and still learning new tricks.

I know a certain little trib where that foam body Drake would be smashed by big trout.

Awesome ties Lornce.
