Re: Tailwaters Candy

I like those enough to maybe attempt them. I found an old stash of hooks from my tiny fly days. What's the body material?

Funny you mentioned midges. My first thought was bits of fish that had gone through the turbines.

Re: PT Jingler (pheasant tail stiff hackle variation)

Ray, whatever your day job is, quit. Just stay home and design new flies for us to copy. If you need incentive, I can contribute ten dollars and a roll of Quilted Northern TP a week. Brilliant fly and so well executed with a tutorial anyone could follow. Well done!

Excellent, Karsten. Loved them when I saw them on FB, but now that I see them on the bigger screen, they are stunning. Like Carl, I am drawn to that one with the yellow rib.

Just got off the phone with Jim. Got a couple of those bad boys headed my way. It's no longer a question of need, but want.

Re: Many First Impressions (multi spectrum jingler)

Excellent SBS, as always, Ray. Clear written instructions and excellent photography. I like it so much I stole the idea and used it on some trout spey sorta flies to help the soft, wispy hackle stand out from the body. I'll post a pic when I can.
