Since I had some time and it's been pretty cold, I've been busy tying my little life away. I finished one side of the box I posted about earlier. It's mostly a caddis box right now, and all the beadheads are tungsten beads. I don't know if I will have time to start the other side, but I have 3 days next weekend at the show to start filling it. I tried to add some new patterns that I don't currently carry in this box. It is geared more towards the bigger sizes, #14-18. Now, what to put in the other side?
X-Caddis in Tan & Dark Dun.
Not sure the name on these. I saw something like these somewhere, so it's not a truly original pattern of mine but it might be different enough from the one I saw. I just can't remember.
Ready to go.
Droppers ready for action.
Purple Stones and Golden Stones.
Mercury Caddis, Peeking Caddis, and my caddis larvas.
My version of the Arizona Prince Nymph.
Caddis and Stones.
Purple Stones. I've never seen purple stones, have you?
#14 Tungsten Red Headed flies. I need a name for these.
Mercury Caddis, Peeking caddis and my BH larvas.
Arizona Prince Nymphs, #12-14
Time for the other side and then to the stream when things warm up.
