Tup's indispensable

Post by Boarmountain » Thu Nov 21, 2019 12:32 pm

My take on it using seal fur with a little ice dubbing mixed in for sparkle for the thorax. Hen dun tail and hackle, primrose silk abdomen.

Very nice. I use one similar on some creeks in your area, west of Basin Mt.

Dubbn,
It worked well on the Missouri this year. Good late season pattern when the pmd's are around.

Yeah, but you only need 5 more Mike to be in the Secret Santa Swap. ;) :lol:

Nicely done Mike. That should be a great pattern for you. It definitely has that Tups attraction to it.
I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.

Wish I had time, guys. Being a taxidermist, it's my busy time of the year.
