Re: Green Midge

Norm,
Yea! I am liking this pattern a bunch! I know of some bluegills that would eat it up as well! I need to colorize my midge box and this does the trick! Thanks Norm!

John,
Fascinating flies from an unlikely source! I am very interested in the history behind these patterns and the man who tied them! Thank you for bringing this us! You did it well as always!

Re: A little "Betters" influence in this Orange Partridge

Wow Alan! They are little soft-hackled bombers! I am with Ray and the others on this one! I have GOT to get this one underway! Have you swung this one in front of your friends under the waters surface?
Simply wonderful! Please keep creating and renewing!

Re: Atherton Nymphs

Norm,
I am really enjoying your contributions especially this latest round of Atherton Nymphs! I have always had a soft spot (primarily on my head) for these nymphs and dries too! Your pictures make me want to get out the fur and hackles and get cracking! Thanks again!
