    Yes, I really miss speaking with Norm. Great guy to talk with and he stood behind his products 1000%. I stopped by the NorVise booth at the Atlanta show this year and quite frankly, it wasn't that...

    I've owned tied on the Regal, the Dyna-King Barracuda, and the NorVise. Once I tied on the NorVise I sold the other two and never looked back. For me, the NorVise is the best vise for my style of...

    Wow, this is a bit different that the more classic patterns that you tie and share with us. How is the action in the water?

    "Wake" fly

    I've been playing around with Mister Twister Floating Jig Heads and they look great in the water so I thought I try something a bit larger with a heavier hook for bass. This is tied on a size 2...

    Floatng Jig Head patterns

    I thought I'd post a couple of flies I tied from the dyed Arctic Fox fur I posted about yesterday. These are tied on Mister Twister Floating Jig heads. They dive down 3" - 4" with a quick strip of...

    Dying your own materials

    I thought I'd share something a bit different. Arctic Fox fur is one of my all-time favorite tying materials, especially for leeches and minnow patterns. I find the choice of colors available to be...

    Once we get a little warm weather, you need to get out on the water. I have my best luck fishing for Crappie when I use colorful jig "flies", especially the ones with the blade tails. Be prepared...

    Swopper Popper

    I got the idea for this pattern over on FaceBook from a talented guy named Graham Weakley, so I thought I'd play around with the idea. This popper system will allow me to very quickly change the look...

    Because it is just slightly buoyant, it drops down 2-3 inches when you strip it on the retrieve and then slowly rises to the top. If fishing on a sink-tip line, it will stay up off the bottom and...

    Floating Jig Head flies

    When I saw that fish USA had Mister Twister floating jigs on sale for 80% off, I thought I'd take a chance and see if I could do anything with them that would work well for bass. Here's what I came...

    Scrounger fly

    I spent some time at the vise yesterday and came up with what I think will be a killer fly for big bass and pike if we had them in Georgia:( It's tied on a TMC 8089 hook size 2, with a stinger hook...

  23. A couple of Jig-Head flies with Dragon Tails

    Tied up a couple more jig-head flies with Dragon Tails. I used the small Dragon Tails and still trimmed them about 1/2" shorter to eliminate the need for a stinger hook. These are tied on size four...

    Sure, I'll give it a try. My photography skills are about as good as my Pole Voulting skills, but I'll give it a shot. The SBS that is, not the Pole vaulting;)
