Some of you folks tie alot of flies. Way to many to comment on them all.

But wow this dragon fly got me. I can imagine a selection of blue,yellow and the green ones. Just awesome looking fly.

Always personally liked Dragon Flies even when i was a kid. Grew up in Dragon Fly country. Used to catch them in a liitle net then let them go after studying them some with magnifying glass.  Just a Beautiful tie Mr. SilverDoctor.

'Pregnant' hot-spot scud. The reason I'm posting another scud is that this one popped out of my vise yesterday, and I searched for at least an hour! Found it wedged between my sling pack and a box, some 2m away!! :lol: Knapek Comp Scud hook, size 14.

This is called a West Fork Nymph, but I think it could pass for a wet-style Stimulator. Fun one in size 10! :D

Hi brunsie1,

I used two layers of Danville's yellow floss and a few wraps of 8lb Chameleon Maxima mono. I found that using some extra tension on the mono helps to sink it into the floss.

Cheers!

I saw a picture of a stomach pump sample that had chironomids that color and couldn't match it. Tried damn near everything

but never thought of floss.

No problem.

One thing I did was colour the floss on the top with a yellow Sharpie, just to darken the yellow a bit. It ended up soaking through most of it. 

You can see the original floss peeking out right near the base of the tail.

Good luck!

Gorgeous fly, SilverDoctor. C'mon, give us a Royal Wulff!

I tied the 'extended-abdomen' wobbly stone again, with a new type of olive chenille. It's on a Size 8 Knapek Comp jig hook. Not a lot of real-estate, but a surefire hookset!
