Confirmation that the scottish mouth wash has arrived. I will be diligent about the mouth washings on the river this year after each steelhead encounter (win or lose).

Mouthwash yes I always need some of that.
Lets discuss offline.
P.S. How is the early salmon season this year ?

As a thank you I have aquired a few mouthwash samples to send to you, most have been produced on the banks of the Spey or the Deveron

I posted all each flys picture, tying instructions, and other information (history, how to fish, etc..) in the salmon and steelhead fly tying archive.
I think I am done.
There are a couple of the pictures I will try and make better.
Thanks again !
Good luck with the flies, let us know of any outstanding results.

Good to see you are back and my guess on the pattern was close.
P.S. When is the spring steelhead swap ?

Sorry guys, I'm back!!!!!!!!
Yes, I finally got my Dad's computer going to email Hal (his runs REALLY S L O W ). LOL I just rebuilt mine (after awaiting diagnostics on my computer finding it was dead). So I'm back in full swing.
I thought I put instructions in with my flies, but must've forgot. I do apologize. To give you some insight, I had seen an atlantic salmon fly similar to this one. I liked the looks/color of it so I retrofited it for my late summer/early fall steelheading on a river I fish religiously. Has been an awesome producer in the gin clear/high vis conditions some of these rivers get. Hal I think was pretty right on, I do believe it was a black bear butt. Not sure. I never named it (I haven't named all my flies). But, I'll call mine the......
Oly Pen Black Bear Butt
Hook: Size 2 salmon/steelhead upturned eye hook
Tag: highlander green silk
body: peacock estez
throat: green dyed guinea hackle
wing: black bear fur (I used black bear, you can use ???)
thread: 6/0 black thread
Sorry it took so long, will be more prompt from now on

Not been on the board in 4 days due to hectic weekend, business, etc. must be a record for me. Looks like a lot of catching up to do.
Received an email from Steelheader 69 who has not been heard of for a month or so, got worried about him.
His hard disk fried a month a go and will be back with us soon. He got the hair wing fly swap flies.
Good to hear he is alright, thought some thing may had happened to him.
I am sure he will be back posting soon from his email to me.

I still have to post the pictures on this one.
|02-12-2003 12:13 AM|
I got the flies Friday.
Fred, that is some humongous fly, although I do like the colors. I never fish anything larger than a size 2/0 in winter and usually I fish a 1/0 to a 2.
I like this fly of yours a lot!
To everyone who participated, a great big thanks. And Hal, this has been a very enjoyable thread due to your bringing in the history of hair wing salmon flies.

Every one should have received their flies by now let me know if you have not.
|02-08-2003 11:08 AM|
Received the flies. Some very nice & interesting flies. Many thanks to all, especially Hal.
