Re: Blue Partridge

Wow Guys,
This is such a good thread with the blue button hole twist as body materials! Our friend Bill Shuck sent me a few patterns very similar to what you guys have done! Talk about a killer pattern! There is something about blue and purple that is so attractive to our finey friends!

Re: Gray Marlow

Norm, Wow! Such a beautifully tied pattern! I love the very butt end of your creation! Smooth, seamless, delicately tapered! Just like the insects we try to portray!

Re: The Dark Needle

Tom, Your pattern above is quite stunning! I like the magpie hurl at the head! Very buggy looking pattern overall! For some strange reason (and this is assuming my little speckled darlings are basically pigs at heart) this pattern has not been well received! I have fished it all season long. It just...

Norm,
Strikingly good looking pattern! I know some seasoned veterans in the pond down below my house that would snap this one up in a hurry! Please make more goodies like this one very soon!
