One of these days I'm gonna invest in a quality JC cape so I can tie those pretty flies....even though I'd have absolutely no use for them.

Nice work Darth!!

John,

Nice looking flys fer sure. I have no clue as to their catch ability with the JC eyes ,but it makes them prettier to my eyes.

I have been working on some saltwater flies, most recently some beginner attempts at flash dancers in some colors that I see no reason a red fish wouldn't like. I also bought a bunch of funky chenille at Hobby Lobby the other day, thinking it would be good for something. (extra long fibers). I tied a saltwater woolybugger with some black/gold today, that I think I would eat. will post pics before too long.

Spent most of my weekend sorting flies......

Image

sanding cork poppers.....

Image

and some foam frog poppers.....

Image

repairing the walkway out to my boatdock......

Image

pond is really looking good......

Image

tried out my wiggle frog.....this thing looks badass in the water....it has a really nice side to side wobble....will dive down a couple of ft. and the legs really make it look like a frog swimming....I think I struck gold with this thing!!

Image

also tested out a bass swap fly....deerhead shad pattern....did'nt sink very deep....maybe about a foot behind a sink tip....but fished down stream and stripped back thru the current I'm sure it'll get down deeper....and most of my largemouth fishing is spent throwing up to the bank and stripping back out into deeper water....so I don't like heavily weighted flies anyway.

Image

also tried out a rabbit strip crappie minnow.......

Image

it looked really good too and caught this little guy......

Image

Did'nt fish long....temps dropped about 30 degrees and rain moved in.....they were shut down.

Oh yeah.....also bought the old lady a new handgun and took her out shooting for a bit.

hoping the first person shot is'nt me!! :o

Tom,
I really like the frog pattern on those poppers. Do you have a template with holes in it that makes it easier to paint that pattern ??
