Re: Small Size Flymphs

Wayne, You are and always have been my hero from afar! Size 24! Wow! This must call for a visit from 7x and even 8x tippet I presume and a slightly stretched out leader of trouty proportions! Awesome! I can't seem to venture outside the size 16 and 6x and occasionally 7x tippet barrier! Doug, this i...

Bill,
These are awesome MD caddis (other caddis too!) patterns! Every one of them looks great! The olive dubbing you have used looks wonderful! Next to orange (October), olive is my favorite! You do great work friend!

Re: Ugly Muskrat

Wayne,
Excellent looking pattern for sure! Let's rename it "Beautiful Muskrat"! Indeed, that's what it is! You have, as you always do, dazzled us with your technical tying which I have come to love seeing! Thirty fishes.....you are blessed!
Great job friend!
