I'm trying for a semi-slider variation...
The pheathers and bucktail are as dense as a 9th grader in a geography class just before lunch...
They move alot of water and stay at or just below the surface (almost phloat).
Any jury suggestions?!:confused:

Pete, I`m going to be up there a lot this spring. we will have to fish at night to give them black ones a fair trial. They look like Mr. wiggly to me. What happened to the tail on the middle one?

Hi Steve...
I was trying for a sorta' phlying wedge...
the black ones came first (with night fishing in mind)...
the middle one was tyed last and I now see what you mean about
"what happened to the tail"...
Good point!...
a few long hackles probably would have been in order...
I guess they call that R&D (research&development)
Fishin' in the dark was drastically missing from my last seasons schedule...
That won't happen again!
Meet you at O'dark thirty!:whoa:

Jack Northrup would be proud. The B2 does not have a tail. Pete, how large a battery does the fly require to operate the flight control computer for a day?

The white one reminds me of Mark Sedotti's "Bunker Head" pattern.

Put a few monkeys in the bunker, show them how the Baracuda works, reward with lotz a' bananas, and soonerorlater they will come up with a...

If scientists can turn bread mold into penicillin...I ought to be able to turn some fur n' feathers into something that can fool a phish with a brain the size of a small pea!

Good therapy too!

Attaboy Pete... making use of "the Bunker" I see. The tying room that is.......

Nice work commandante!

Nice combination of cool vibes (aka "pushing water") 'whilst maintaining that open/translucence that Kenney gets all lyrical about ;)

Simply Phantastic!

Pen, did you consult with Phineas J. Whoopie on these flies or did you and Chumley pull this great feat off without any outside help?
