Dewey,

It was a LaFontaine Emergent Sparkle Pupa. The hook size and material color are based on the type of caddis you are trying to imitate. For example, I tie them in cream (#14,16), Olive (#14) and Brown/Gray (#12,14,16).

HOOK-standard dry fly
TRAILING SHUCK-antron yarn or emergent sparkle yarn
VEIL/SHEATH-same as shuck
BODY-superfine dubbing
WING-elk hair to match body color
HEAD-dark brown superfine dubbing

That's it. Awesome fly.

To all those who attended on Saturday, I had a great time, learned a lot, and look forward to seeing you all again.

It was a nice little oasis amidst a week of bad news.

Happy Holidays!

Can't say enough about another great event put on by Ed and Mike. The comraderie and the generousity of the folks on here that come around and make these things happen is amazing.

I still have no words to describe the beauty of the desk or the generousity of SkyBlue. I can yap with the best of them, but when I try to share, I am speechless and my eyes well up with emotion. Ben loves to fish and tie flies ever since learning last year, and couldn't wait for Saturday. He bubbled all weekend, tied more Sunday morning, and of course, can't wait until the next event. He is 'hooked' for sure.

I haven't let him use it yet - I am following DeltaDog's advice and putting some protection on the top. I also need to put some cork or felt onto the clamp of his vise to keep him from scuffing up the arms like he did the front of his desk. It, along with a newly framed fly from Eunan, will be under the tree for Ben next week.

Thanks again to everyone who attended. It was great to walk around and talk to everyone, and sit down and enjoy some fishing and Ninja talk over Burritos and Beers afterwards as well.

Look forward to seeing everyone on here through the winter and in person in the spring! (if not sooner!)

Paul

Got the rest of the pictures up on the slide show.

Somehow, I was missing a picture of CrazyGrady's tie. Just by dumb luck, I have some of the raffle flies that weren't claimed at the jam, and it was in there. Whew!

That reminds me - I have to contact the raffle winners that weren't there to claim their prizes. Soon....

Here's the complete slide show. I may shuffle the photo order around as I find time, but it's all here...

...well it's almost all here. I can't seem to get CrazyGrady's fly into the slide show, but if you click on view all, it's there.

Technical difficulties.

It's there when I view it Ed. Flys look nice Gfen. I know you thought they looked horrible because of dust, but I can't see anything.

Can I get a picture of the fly I tyed, Ed? Email me it or something?

Finally figured it out.

Yeah, gfen did his usual great job. The ones with the blue background were taken by me. Gary's are much nicer!

Email sent, Shane. Damn that fly looks great!

Thanks Ed. Have to figure out how to make the thorax thicker without adding weight.

Yellow Uni-Stretch works great for that. The Evening Hatch has it.

You'll have a whole handful of bobbins going!

I just have to post a big picture of your tie, 'cause I'm so proud of you.

Thanks guys. The Uni is a good idea, but the thought of another bobbin scares the crap out of me. Gaeron, I did not even use a flat pliers to even it all up! Which btw is a great tip.

I obviously have to learn my insect parts. Lol I meant abdomen.

Your son is the future...I understand...I could not say much after your son's reaction and his big smile was worth it all. I will never forget that moment in time.
