I have a black nymph pattern I made up that I was planning on tying for this. I use some easter grass as the flash back for it. Snagged a handful of the grass from my neices basket this past year and use it for all of my flash back patterns... works like a charm!

Bruno,

Are setting a limit on the amount of tiers? I'm in if you have room. If I counted right, I would make 11. This just what I needed to get tying again. I'll probaly tie a soft-hackled hares ear if we stick to the "Go-to" theme.

I'll also take the photos if you want...however I fear it was my poor photography for the midges that resulted in almost no one claiming their ties...so I make that offer with the disclaimer that someone else keep track of who ties what!


Your pics aren't that bad, I just havn't gotten around to Id'ing the fly's yet. Just might do that tonight after the X-mas party.

Since I am new to PA and USA fishing, can someone let me know if I need to tie on barb less hooks and if there are other regulations that need to be followed, e.g. is additional weight allowed.

Either I am going to tie a nymph pattern that I use in New Zealand for fishing under willows (which I have been able to get a few 5 lb browies on) or a big deers hair cicada pattern typically used in New Zealand to suspend nymphs and doubles as a great indicator. Else a classic all black gnat.

Hey, if there’s room I’ll join the swap with a Thunder Creek Series. I’ll have to think about what pattern would be best across PA. But these streamers have proven to be very effective, with a slim profile, dark back and target eyes. Even though they have a slim profile, the tying method results in a rounded nose which, as it’s stripped back, produces a water cone much like a natural baitfish. I personally think Keith Fulsher is a genius for coming up with this pattern. I finally got round to tying and using them about a year ago. I’ve known about them since 1962 and finally got to them. No reason to rush; I fly fish to get away from the rush. Why they have not been more popular is beyond me. Maybe the Clouser minnow has overshadowed it? Anyways, after a year of tying them, I believe I’m figuring out how to get the same profile as Mr. Fulsher intended, with a small elongated head. Not one with a rounded, bulbous head. Fredrick, who also has joined the swap, can testify to how this pattern produces. I gave him one I tied and he had good results with it on the Big Bushkill. I’d also like to get the Thunder Creek streamers added to the swap pages.

Tight lines,
Larry

If unusual materials becomes the theme, this article should motivate some interesting tying.

ffNZ,

Many of us use barbless hooks on our own accord. If you have barbs, nothing a pair of hemos can't solve for me. There are usually no regulations against it, aside from a few special regs areas. As far as weight, I think that's kosher for the whole state.
