Long time no see!

Hi folks. It's been a while since I posted. Work and weather has slowed my fishing but not killed it. I'm still fly fishing: fresh and saltwater surf fly (when the wind and waves allow), and now surf spin casting as well.

I ran across some hand tied flies over the weekend and was curious as to if they were actually usable. See the pics and you will see what I mean...

Those are some crazy looking flies! I see a crayfish pattern in the top image that looks like it would catch fish. Also I think there's a hare's ear nymph in the bottom image. That should work too. Lol.

I have no doubt Sandy is correct....they look like home tied flies used for shad. You live fairly close to the D river, Joe. Use them in April-May for the shad run. Loads of fun!

Might work for brookies, as long as they aren't huge.

I agree with jeremymcon.

I bet you could catch steelhead on some of those shad flies too.
