great flies guys.
good stuff all around

Your hopper looks fantastic.
1x or 2x long streamer hook
Large gold bead for head
Olive marabou tail
peacock ice dubbing for body
Black uni thread
green ultrawire for ribbing

tie that guy to the whippin' post! I'll get some answers out of him!

Oh! I tied what I call the Peacock Hypnosis nymph. Gold BH, peacock ice dubbing for body, peacock sword for little tail and green ultrawire ribbing. The brookies are absolutely mesmerized by...

i'll do a foam backed cricket that's common in my neck of the woods.

flies went out today by priority.
Got mine today. Really amazed at the variety of crayfish. Good stuff!
