NICE! 3x hooks?

Yep, TMC200R. I think the gap is a little too narrow on this model but these are the only 3x long dry fly hooks I have.

It is on my short list to learn the tying of these flies.

I never have any luck fishing isos but I still tie them...

In order
1. Vinnie's Isonychia (I added thick lead wire on each side of the hook to widen the body a bit)
2. Ramsay's Swimming Isonychia
3. Wiggle Iso

The legs are Lively Legz in rust color.

Been working on some bass flies the past few days.
First one is Meade's Gutless Frog. I never heard of until last Thursday. Based on pictures I decided to tie one up. It beat ordering one on-line for $6+shipping so I could take it apart to see how it was tied. Still need to refine it a bit

The second one is a panfish pattern I've been using for at least 20 years. Learned it from a local tyer who came up with the pattern. Normally I tie it in size 6 and 8. This one is tied on a 2/0 hook.

Isn't that the one you shared last year that always gets me large Gill hook-ups at Gouldsboro?

No, it's a different pattern. Here's a picture of a bass size 3/0 version of the one I shared with you which I normally tie in size 6. Also a picture of "Tony's Froggie" on the water in a baking dish. You can see the difference.

All with stinger hooks?

Yes.

For a fly to be "articulated" only means that the body has some type of joint (usually some form of loop) that allows the fly to flex at mid-section. Some nymphs are tied in this fashion.

In the case of large streamers such as these, the term usually implies that there are two hooks, one in the forward section and one in the rear. These larger flies often use a length of steel called a "shank" which is simply there to move the rear hook further back in the fly. The flies shown in this pic use such shanks, which I design with heavy wire.

They are very nice. I was thinking of using the wire bit tippet that I use for bluefish for shanks off the front hook.
