I have 2 patterns coming, too. (One of them is essentially for entertainment, unless you like fishing tiny midge patterns...)

 

Those look great, D. Case! The extended body with the biot tails looks like a great stonefly imitation. Do you do all the tying on the hook or do you tie the extended body on a needle and then transfer it (or something else altogether)?

D. Case

I tie it on a needle and transfer it. Stack the two colors of foam and segment the body along the pin.  Easy and works great.  Also makes a great giant may fly pattern for Michigan's Hex hatch.

Wow, those are beautiful....

 

Mine are much more Spartan but I'm putting mine in the mail. Went with a heavy big fish fly. A "double bunny" small rainbow trout imitation. I really am hoping that most will give it a try, and they have enough rod to cast it.  I have a lot of success with the pattern in both fresh and salt water.

I'll keep an updated received flies list in original post.

Got Chubs yesterday.    BTW...chubs...for me, fishing is all about entertainment, and out here we are crazy enough to throw midges just like those.

I just got back from Idaho and had two more packages of flies waiting for me.   

 

I think everybody will be happy with the nice flies this year.

I just got back from being in Texas for the week.  The last batch of flies arrived yesterday.  They should all get picked up by mailman on Monday.

 

Some really nice looking flies!

Got my flies in the mail this morning. What a great assortment can't wait to give them a try. Thanks to all for their great work. 

 

PS.... I almost missed the tiny midge stuck to the piece of foam. I don't think I could ever tie that small. Between my eyes and my big clumsily hands I would lose it somewhere in the process.
