It's been a long winter up here in Wisconsin and I've been tying flies off and on for a couple of months. What a winter it's been. Green Bay got a record 9 inches this week.

I tied up 7 boxes of flies. I donated two boxes of 9 dozen flies for our TU State Council Banquet and my local TU chapter banquet. Here are the 5 boxes of flies that are left.

I just finished tying up a box of Morrish Hopper patterns for hoppers, salmon flies, yellow sallies, golden stones, and crickets. The Morrish hopper seems to be a good match for them.

I know the abdomen is a brighter color on my flies but the Salmon flies on Madison have orange bellies.

Silver.....Those look great. I'm sure that TU is glad that you were shut into the tying desk for that long winter. ;)

Looks like some pretty solid stuff Silver!

I need to get stocked up on foam beetles and hoppers myself.....the brim are getting hungry. :D
