Interesting. The bend back in the wire is under quite a bit of tension and I wonder if it loosens the binding thread over time. I am very surprised that the double over wire would pull out even with a moderate amount of thread over top, especially with no junctions in the thread. I am going to dig out a few I've had sitting around for a while and see how they do in the slow pull test. Thanks again for the heads up.

I'll send you a few replacements.

Reminds me of the 8" blue bunny fly Larry dropped on Jim Teeny up on the Kispiox


The look on his face was priceless.

Cost ya .99 cents to watch it.

Throw a couple of 8mm beads between those segments and you have yourself a wicked steak and eggs fly! Nice twist on an articulated fly. Can say I've seen that approach, stacked tubes, but it seems like a great way to go about it. Well done.

Each section alone would make a great little micro flesh fly, which can be deadly at times.

Nice work you guys!

I haven't tied much in the past year. I must not be fishing enough, or not deep enough when I do fish. Plus Coley takes pity on me and sends me flies, so I had enough for all summer, fall, and this coming winter. One of the nice things about fishing with a floating line is that I don't lose too many flies, although a recent summer run ran away with a Muddler, thanks to crummy RIO leader tippet, but that's another subject. One of the downsides to fishing with a floating line is that I don't catch too many fish. Which isn't so much of a downside since WDFW implemented mandatory hatchery steelhead retention on the Cowlitz and other rivers this year, and I really don't want to keep an October summer run. Alas, the season for the Spade and Muddler is coming to a close, and it's time to swing the pretty flies Coley sent and my ties that resemble decorations for a French whorehouse.

Pretty flies. What do you fish those for? Tiger Muskie? Can't tell what size they are, and they don't look like what you've preferred for coho.

I've been catching resident coho and searuns on them. I've been cutting them back a bit but still a little larger then I'd generally fish with for them. The wiggle action is very good.
I've really been hoping a blackmouth would jump on one. I do plan to fish tigers and lings more this year and will use something like these.

Nice ties Stone. Wish I could find the time to sit down at the vise. I don't see that happening until next winter or maybe beyond that. Booo...
