need to hit the vise soon and wondering what your goto flies are ?
Ive only got 2 on the fly and both were egg sucking leeches.
Im thinking on black/blue intruders..Im going to choose 6 flies to tie and use.

As promised Mike, here are a few for ya that I have done.

I recently got back on the bench after a long time away. When my father passed I lost most of interest and sold a lot of my stuff as I used to do a lot of tying with him, he was awesome !! Nowadays I still have my basics and I tie what is "new to me" in the way of new styles coming out.

I really like Scott Howells "squidro" patterns and a man from back east sent me a few of his where he added the squid "eyes" as well to this pattern.

Here are some of my copies, and although I think they will work this winter, they are nowhere even close to the originals when it comes to finesse.

A couple Squamish Poachers are always worth a try too

That's enough for now.

Later man.

ya those squidros are cool..ive tried to tie some last winter with the meager supplies i had..its not a easy tie for sure..the poacher is a great one too..(especially at the clux)but I can never make decent eyes..

You ever go hiking down the hill behind the ball diamond ?? I haven't fished up there for years now but besides the Q this is where I liked to go sometimes, very peaceful place and WILD acrobatic fish.
