    Default Time to get "serious"

    Back to the (early season) tailwater stuff. No sense trying to tie these in the truck with a headlamp; it's warm inside and my fingers work. What they may lack in aesthetics, they make up for in effectiveness and ease of tying.


    Zebras

    traditional



    sunburned




    Firebead Scud




    Firebead Ray Charles Softhackle



    same fly with UV Ice dub instead of ostrich





    Bloom's Weight Fly



    Bloom's Weight Fly Dark (pretty much a Grape Slushy on steroids)





    Rainbow Warrior

    what are you using to coat your zebra midges with, looks like it would make them a lot more durable

    John,

    Couple coats of nail polish (Sally Hansen). These were spiffed up since they were getting their picture taken; usually I just brush one thinned coat and that's provided all the protection they've needed.

    Bloom's weight fly dark........ I bet that dubbing looks buggy when it is wet! Lots of dark shine.
    Faith, family, and fiberglass. Make it happen.

    It's UV, too (Ice Dub Brown, which kinda comes out as purplish),so it has that going for it, which is nice.
