What's in your vise?

Postby Kiskadinna » Tue Jan 27, 2009 10:41 pm

Well I finally sat back down at the vise tonight, been since spring. Too long, but its good to be back prepping for summer.
I've been working on a variation of Barr's Meatwhistle, it kills on bass in the early part of the season. I need to tie more nymph patterns and caddis too. Any way, here is the results. So who's tying and what's on your to do list?

Too true, I never could wrap my brain around year round fishing having grown up in MN - but it is a plus when youve got flies to tie!

Oh and estaz eggs, you ever trie the glue eggs? They are pretty popular up this way, while not a purist method. I llove cold water, but realistically, I spend more days on warm than anything.

i ain't tying now but after spring i'll have my stuff up here so i can. I'm thinking i'll research what stoneflies/salmonflies are out here so i can come up with a few patterns to test out when the time is right. i came up with a great calibeatis pattern a few years back that i slayed with in Oregon until the river flooded. soome caddis are in order too.

I just got a vise today and made a wooley booger (actually two, but I broke the thread on one :oops: ) and some other thing I forgot the name of. They came out pretty good IMO.

Sorry for the delay. Don't tell any purists, but thats not a traditional fly. It's actually a jig hook as the design is similar to that of a jig and pig. I love casting a dry fly upstream to a rising trout, but that's not always in the cards, so in fly tying I appreciate a little different approach. Creativity.
No more odd than a popper really, it does what it's supposed to do - be fished like a jig.

I buy bare jigs and tie 'em up for crappie and bass ... they work well on a heavy flyrod if you want to dredge the bottom of a pool with authority. Specially big black stonefly looking ones in those deep pools where you never get down with even 3 or 4 twist ons.
