Request per Penquin is almost that time of year again when the pea-bunker arrive as do albies.
If you are interested and have the time, I for one would like to view some of your bunker and albie fly creations. I am sure that I am not alone.

Like the one with the scales
The third fly down after the albie photo is most interesting. Fish scales. How did you do that? FishHawk

Phanks Pete for sharing and taking the time!!!!!!!! Phrap, you are inphentive and innophative!!!! and your book status is???????????????
Creative ways to achieve the "roundness" of heads!!!
Your composition of flies reminds me of songs.........there are only so many notes, yet it amazes me that so many songs can be created with them ( hope that makes sense). Novel uses of materials!!!
Only one question remains (other than FishHawk's) you have more tying material in your "lab" than Bear's Den? :smokin:

As always, very nice Pete.

Me, I'm drawn to the mystical Bass River Slam (snapper blue, little flounder, sea robin and for a grand slam maybe a stinky northern sennet) and it's getting to be about time. Got anything for this truly excotic pursuit?

Impressive array of hardtail artillery Pete!

Coated estaz wrap!!!!!!!!!!!! and there's another thing I wouldn't have thought of....How long does it take you to fall asleep at night? :hihi:

Those are so exquisite I'd have trouble throwing them in the water. (although I'd probably manage to)

Pete, how is anyone supposed to even try to keep up with you!

This is strictly a spectator sport, don't try it at home, extreme frustration leading to substance abuse can result! Or... You might enjoy it!

Well said Jon!!! Was thinking that myself. Every one of Pete's ties opens a new door at our pathetic vises :chuckle:

Bug-Bond... tack free... encapsulated mylar...

It seems like every time you put up some new pics, a different vise pops into view, tools are an obsession and very fascinating to the obsessed(obviously). From a confessed tool nut.
