Re: Marilyn Flymph

I love the fly! ...the rest of it, the whole 'Marilyn' thing, I don't get. She never pumped any sunshine up my tookus; she looks like one of my old elementary school teachers. Must be a generational thing...

Re: Lord Gray

Beautiful tie, Norm.

My computer shows the fly to be decidedly green, especially the head.

Re: Grizzly King

I love this fly, especially this rendition of it. The first fly I tied for a swap, back in the old FAOL days, was a Grizzly King on a double salmon hook. Got any pictures of it? I'd like to see your version, just because of your hook choice. That being said, and I'm sure we can chock this up to one...

Re: Gary LaFontaine's Sparkle Pupa

Beautiful picture; so different from my home waters of northern Maine. I've tied the Sparkle Pupa but it pales beside yours; outstanding job. As for fishing it..., I have to agree with Dubbn. I've never done well with it, and I really put in the time with that pattern. I finally came to the conclusi...

Re: Bridge 99 Emerger

Mike, I have to disagree with on the hook! It has "graceful lines"! On the smaller scale (having to do with total shank length), Tiemco's 3761 has these lines (humped shank) but not quite to the degree of the 200R or TFS 2312. Norm, a very interesting looking emerger pattern! You do these...
