Do us a favor post a how to video of that bad boy. Try not to be so mono tone though, fly tying videos are boring enough try to be exciting.

Sbecker you can use any red thread you want for it. Back is jelly rope. It makes a nice segmented body.

I plan on posting some videos I just need to get my brother to take the footage for me. That is a feat in itself. I have only been asking him all year to make some videos. Lol

Alot of guys are dumb. You chose your background based on the strengths of your foreground. The black quite nicely helps emphasize these tones, including the royal blue.

For a true neutral background you want 18% Kodak Grey. For people who aren't that anal retentive, any medium dark grey will work.

Nice flies, nice pics, nice new pattern. Sorry I missed meeting you at the JAM last weekend. Maybe another time we can rip some lip together.

(message to all paff)


Is it just me, or am I just exceptionally gifted?

I feel like 99% of fly patterns out there, I can just look at a single picture and do a pretty good job of copying it.

It's not rocket surgery guys. Just takes some effort and imagination.

Nice tie Aaron - the one you gave me looks even better though.

I got the chance to see one of Letera's fly boxes, and there wasn't a poorly tied fly in it. It was eye candy, for sure.

I'm glad to see some positive feedback for you. It was a pleasure to meet you this past weekend on stream. I hope more people get the chance to meet you, and fish with you.

This is one of the great benefits of getting the people here together in person for our Jamborees/mini Jams.

BTW - I call first dibs on fishing with you at next year's Steelhead Jam!

H.A.

Heratage the fly you got is tyed with the diamond braid I dyed. The one pictured is the first prototype I did and it was with that flat sparkle braid. I changed over to what you have now. Thanks for the complements. If you fish with me you can try any flies I have in my box as long as you send me the pics of the fish you catch.

One other thing I wanted to add about this type of pattern. This year you are going to start seeing more "smash up" patterns. Especially in the NY area. In NY you can only use one hook so it makes sense to combine two good patterns into one sort of double dipping. You can also tie patterns on mono and do that "hareline" type rig with a few flies up the tippet and one hook at the end of the tippet for NY. I personally don't like this because it seems too much like snagging or lining the fish. Also for those guys thinking of making the Oak Orchard trip next fall. When you go to set the hook the motion has to be strait up not off to the side at all. 7 guys got fined when I was up there because their hook set was a little to the side. In NY you don't actually have to snag a fish to get fined if it looks like a snagging motion they will fine you. Its a $250 fine too.

Fair enough, you certainly know a lot more about that carp than I do, however I would disagree with the use of black here. You can hardly see the black biots and the jelly rope and under body are very hard to see as well. Needs moar contrasting background to my untrained eyes.

Way easier to see imo.

Becker, so you are saying too many colors because in nature there typically is only a color or two represented?

And you accuse me of trying to science up some art....
