Since tying this fly for the swap I've tried a few more color variations. It's a really fun pattern to tie, and there's a lot you can do with it. They're all weighted to a 1/8 th" tungsten bead with tungsten thread.

Look like Czech nymphs. I thought the halfback was pheasant tail and peacock herl.

They do look good!

I tried to replace the first pic because it seemed too small to see but waited to long, now I can't. Didn't mean to pile up the pics. Just wanted everyone to be able to see them. Thanks a lot trout & Joe.

Thanks a lot guys. Weaving was frustrating at first but I feel like I'm starting to get the hang of it. That and figuring out that latex gloves gives a better grip than the cotton gloves I started using for this. My hands tear most of the material used for weaving to shreds.

Jack when I saw Halfback in the title I was thinking of a totally different fly. I tied 2 dozen Halfbacks last week for my panfish box. This is what I was thinking you were talking about. Nice ties by the way.

Nice looking flies.

I've seen this pattern before but I can't recall where.

Jack, all of your bugs look good. I've seen some in person (Roger stole them from you) and they're sharp.

Jack is quite the tier, he never ceases to impress me.


Nice Jack, can't wait to test them out

Hammercreek flyfishing has a video on the pattern which is where I first saw it.
Roger and I fish a lot together, we're always swappin patterns.
Brian, thank you for such a high compliment.
Thanks to everyone for such kind words, I appreciate it.
