AHA! The 'truth is out!' And I can't blame you a bit.

Hal, thanks for adding the recipes.
Even Atty's can get it "right" sometimes. Blind Pig and the acorn thing.

Pout, pout ... JD kept it for himself. Pout.

Didn't get one of those in the great box in todays mail. But God that tie looked great in the photo's.

If we're all to put up with your "I'm in love" thread ... cough up!!

pmflyfisher Did you get the hair wing swap flys yet and the other ones I threw in ?

There is tungsten conehead sparrow type nymph that is similar but in a hex style. Just about the same.

Give it a go and let me know how it sinks. I think it will dive right to the bottom of the Rouge into the zone. :hehe: :hehe:

Pout, pout ... who come I! didn't get one of these???

So, Hal Baby .... get your sorry fanny to the bench. These look like they could be true 'hunter-killers.' A half dozen would be good on size 6 and 8 hooks; wted would be wonderful.

I WANT SOME!

Notice how "wine" (as what the bottles empty????) and "whine" as he wants some of these flys, is 'only an 'h away?'

Gotta admit it's amazing what works in one area

of the country and is a zero in another. Even the length of the river will determine what will/won't work for us on the Rogue. Shrimp patterns are a dead loss in the upper river due to it's length; here small and dark patterns prevail. Exception to that, at times of the year are single egg patterns.

Not unusual to be chasing King Salmon with 'traditional steelhead patterns tied on hooks in size 8-10's in the upper river.

Looking through all of those flies...

... it seems that there's a huge degree of separation between salmon fishing and fishing the SW along the East Coast. Most of that stuf looks totally alien! Neat though!

Wow, John your really delivering on this giving me and Fred more work. I may be sorry I sent so many flies!
I dont think I'm giving Fred much work, only his own fly and the cheese fly affect him.

Actually Hal I appreciate the variety thet you sent in. Now get those recipes added . Especially the rainbow streamer :hehe: I have uses for that one.

pmflyfisher Wow, John your really delivering on this giving me and Fred more work. I may be sorry I sent so many flies!

Can we keep the GLs fishers who may be on the same river as me from viewing these pictures, my strategic advantage may be now neutralized ? Oh well they still have to find the steelhead and present the fly properly, more information they all may not have.

This is the first of Hals entrys in the simple but deadly fly swap. I'll let Hal enter the recipe.
