  1. Nice work! Love the use of hair brush parts for eyes. Have you been able to fish them? I imagine they will sink nearly horizontally as the rubber legs may balance out the weighted eyes. ??
  2. Thank you to everyone who came and tied! God Bless y’all. Here’s to a healthy, happy 2020🎣
  3. Thank you, John. Look forward to it. Cory will coming up to tie with us.
  4. Hello fellow Bassbuggers! Saturday, December 14, 10am til 1pm, I invite any who would like to sit a spell, have a coffee or something while we comizerate around our vices. Tie what you like. Bring a material to share. Coffee, tea, soft drinks and water are on the house. Please bring a little something for snacking. PM me for directions. I live on the North side of Chicago, Cheers Jim Wright
  5. Good stuff. I’ve been having issues with blood knots of late. For me it’s failing eyes. I’m going to have to expand my knot repertoire. That sounds like an awful condition for you Mark. I hope you can find some relief for it.
  6. Cmon Rich! You are so great at creating a fly that will hunt. They are not “lifelike” yet seem alive 👍🏻
  7. Knot tying is a skill. Take time to be precise, just as we do while tying our favorite patterns. Perfect practice makes perfect 😎 Go to globalflyfisher.com. There are many leader formulas to choose from.
  8. I can’t say anything more than what has already been said here. I’ve never had the pleasure of sharing the water with Mr Ron, but had some nice conversation at some of our events. Life is truly too short. I resolve to reach out to our membership to share time on the water. Godspeed RonK
  9. Nice looking foam bug, Terry. I hope it will hunt up a Brutus for ya
  10. That is terrific customer service!! Glad the out come went your way?????
  11. Thanks Jude! I'll keep an eye on it. Whenever you guys decide
  12. I would like to join in on this event. How is put in/take out handled?
  13. Ray Raynor was like my Good Morning America while I was growing up on the north side of Chicago. RW = red/white. Rodger that! It was a fun tie. There where step by step instructions in the magazine. I had most materials. Some I made do.
  14. Never thought of those for Steelhead. I figured them for warm water species. I am going to get up there to try again, Tom!
  15. forgive me fellas but what is RW? I have not fished these patterns. Just getting a little creative. The complex ones with the zonkers are from Fly Tyer mag spring '17 issue. It's called a "white demon". I'll let you know if they hunt. Sadly my version looks like Ray Raynor's version! (I've just aged myself). The others are an interpretation of Tim Holshlag"s patterns. Thanks
  16. Ha! Three Blind Mice, Rat Patrol, Combat... This is a great fishing show!! Perhaps a dusting of a clear varnish or shellac (sp) will repel more water? Nice tie, man. Careful in the high water
  17. This is what happens when I work night shift then try and turn the body clock back around. Some simple stuff; 2 or 3 materials. Then more complex; 5 or 6 materials. I prefer the former.
  18. Cory and I tied a mess of bass bugs that will available for raffle at our Blowout.
