I am reengineering the bug for great lakes waters, will send you some, upon completion of prototypes for application out west.

Summer run season is kicking into high gear so plenty of time to test the 'new configs.'

Please post the pattern so others can get a chance to tie some and give them a try.

Now that I purchased a digital camera this past weekend I guess I can do that if, Fred will let me divulge the reengineered versions.

I think he wanted to have first water advantage with the new buggers on his waters.:hehe:

Fred has not even seen some of these yet. In business we call these corporate trade secrets.

So you are going to tantalize us? Most of us don't fish Fred's waters anyway.

I decked a 10# on one of these flys late last week. Mentioned in another post that another fellow on the beach and I had hooked 5 fish between us that evening .... but 'bumkin' here forgot to tell you all my fish, and one of his, were on your flys.

Guys I have not got the digital camera picture procedure and downsizing to meet the forumm 30k size limitation yet to provide a quality picture. I am still working on it but when I see it takes longer to transfer the picture, down size, load it to this site, than it does to actually tie the fly I know something is wrong.

I will get them up eventually

Congrats on the fish fred, I tried them but no luck yet. To be honest I did not give them a long enough go compared to my old reliable producers.
