    monthly isa tying

    next thursday 4 -19 is our fly tying session at dupage fly 6pm. i will be instructing on tying the action worm using eyelash yarn . the small version is a great imitation of a ned rig . mid size is a worm or minnow pattern depending on how it is trimmed. a large version is just like the dragontail used on musky flies . for the fans of the ned rig come on out and bring some mushroom heads . i will have a clear container with water so you can see the action when wet .

    Just 4 Fun

    i cant judge the two of you because i havnt seen jude dance yet. very close as terry can dance and jude has a bug named after him. if there was a fishing challenge i would favor terry in cold water [tube jigs] and jude in warm water [jude bug , chug bug ]

    Who's tying what?

    those bombers are very nice one thing i would do is use starflash silicone legs they are round and thicker= more silhoute and more water movement . i think starflash is made in southern illinois. rich

    thanks for sharing this fly. two questions are the beads on the mono metal or plastic? why use a sink tip on a diver?
