Watcha tying today.

This place is awfully slow. I understand the weather has turned, but shouldn't that mean it's time for tying? Experimenting?

In and attempt to get us all excited.....

What have you been today today? (or at least recently)

I just tied up some of what I call Soft Hackle Zeebs (there may be another name for them, I don't know, but that's what I call them)

One of my seceret weapons for the Ferry.

I use just a bit shorter hackle version.

The traditional "zeeb" with a little extra.

Thx.

Scott

Like your Soft Hackle Zeebs. I am going to tie up some chironomids today. Chromie's, Chan's, TDC's, and blood worms.

Thumbs up

I like them. Look tasty enough to me.

Gona be a favorite pattern to tie of mine once I get going with that.
Looks like a simple enough tie but idk ( hmm.. mostly hook, a bead, fluffy chenille/hackle’? and metal wrap ) but very detailed... again I know practically nothing but just admiring your work.

That's what I was shooting for the first time I tried it. I just want a short collar. I thought Ostrich Hurl would give me a short collar that looks like gills. What I got was this and my first thought was "Oh ****, I think I'm on to something here!"

For those that asked, it's a very simple, basic Zebra Midge Tie, the only difference is the Ostrich Hurl palmered at the bead like a soft hack feather.


Mike, you have indeed been tying a few hoppers.
