From the Bench

Bought some saltwater flies at a fire sale some time ago. Not useful for me, but I was scoping the heavy hooks. Last night I used a pocket knife to strip off all the materials and turn out a half dozen carp flies. The hooks are stout: will not bend or break. John Montana sent me a pattern to replicate - couldn't really do it that well because I don't have any really sweet beard/sword material... But I think in some situations these would fish okay. Maybe a bit on the loud side really. Half the shite I tie up I hate the second it's done anyway. Ha! Tomorrow night I'm going back to basics: dusting off the small LOD - the pattern has gotten away from its root and it needs to veer back that way.

Drop that in front of a carp on the big C and you are in business.

FYI, the army of worms is coming together. I whipped up about 15 or so today. I'll work on some other "basics" in the coming weeks.

eye of the beholder my friend. If you don't like those, I can probably find a good home for them.
