Another Boring Friday Night So Went To The Vice

Post  Charlie G. on 10/24/2012, 8:19 pm

Same boring Sleep crap on the tube this past Friday night so I sat down and tied up a few new flies.
The first is a high-low tie where all the material was tied on the top or bottom of the hook shank.
I like the way it came out and it looked good in the sink test, now to the big sea to see how the it works there.





My nephew stopped by to tell me the story of his latest catch. A 40" Musky caught on a trolled lure. And how some guys had been trolling large flies along with lures to attract big Muskys so I tied him up this next critter wow and another one also.
And also cause it gave me some practice palmering feathers around the hook shank.





And yes he left with 2 new flies.

Jimmy I used Varivas 2600 ST-V long shank hooks on both. The top one is a 2/0 and the bottom critter was tied on a 3/0. I really like those hooks, sharp out of the box and heavy shank.

Thanks for the info Charlie! I have spent the last few days going back through your older posts, HARDCORE!

I was introduced to salt fly on a 3 way rig last week and now I'm consumed by it. It is one of those techniques I want to learn.

Any good resources for a beginner?

I have basic questions like is there a difference between flies used with a fly rod vs flies used on a 3 way rig on a long rod with a weight?

Hook up or hook down and why?

Ever think of offering fly tying lessons? I'm like you, I cant sleep and I hate TV.

Do you pretty much use the same size eye even though different size hook? What size are those eyes?
