Just another guy addicted to fly fishing. I'm a regular on WVAngler.com, fish mostly WV and MD. Although I made the journey to State College twice last year and have plans for future trips. I believe I also fished with two of you guys in last years HNFI.

Anyways here's some flies...

Welcome, those are some great looking streamers. They would eat most of the flies in my box. I like that crayfish as well. A little more involved than my crayfish pattern.

Good luck this year, and look forward to reading your posts.

lv2nymph, I live in north central WV, but I've ventured down that way to fish a time or two...

mike, that crayfish is actually easier to tie than it looks, but it's one of those patterns I tied just for the sake of tying. My go to crayfish pattern is nothing more than some lead eyes, arctic fox, and a schlappen feather. It fishes just as well as any crayfish pattern, is simple to tie, and won't make you cry if you lose it to a snag.

I've ff the new river for smallmouths down there and it was very good, as a matter of fact at least when I was there there were some really big blue gills in there too. And of coarse cat fish, but we got them another way. Got my first pink belly ( when I was ten)on that river too, that wasn't as much fun. My dad would never let me go out in the john boats without him and especially at night, one evening he let me do both I was so excited about checking the trot lines that I didn't think about it or the fact I was going with three teenagers. You know that stung all night and hurt all the next day, everyone got a good laugh back at the bank when we got back! Just part of the initiation of the river, a week sleeping on the river bank, fishing, riding four wheelers and generally mesin around with a big ol cat fish fry at the end was worth it.

Nicely done. Nice colors combos. I noticed that several fit in the palm of your hand. I have plans to adapt many streamer patterns to a variety of sizes...mostly the down-sized versions. Hate to scare the fish to death!

Haha. Actually I have extremely large hands, nearly 9" heel of palm to tip of my middle finger. So it makes the flies look smaller than what they are. For example, in the 3rd pic down, that fly is ~7 1/2".

I do a lot of downsizing patterns too, I'll take musky flies and scale them down to around 7" for trout

That's the upper size of most of my trout stuff. I have some smaller stuff (3-4") that I fish on my 4wt with normal water conditions. When the water is up and muddy and the big browns are on the feed, I break out my 7wt with sinking line and the flies are normally in the 6-7" range.
