Tying Challenge 10
Since I'm having a hard time consistently getting up a weekly challenge, I'll start just numbering these instead of including the "week." Anyway, how about a broad challenge for this week. Fall is either upon us or nearly so depending on where we live. Its time to get out and chase those big browns. I had a great time last Sunday and found lots of willing fish. They sure get aggressive before the spawn as they feed up to prepare for the rigors ahead. So this week, let's see your favorite fall brown trout pattern(s)!!! I will try and tie something, probably tomorrow or Thursday, as I need to tie for this next weekend anyway. Looking forward to seeing what everyone has!

Flyman, I'm starting to understand how you catch all those monster browns... :rolleyes:

That stonefly looks great. I like the folded wing cases. I try to tie with folds but mine never look that good.

Grannyknot, how about some tips on that awesome wingcase? Have wanted to tie stoneflies like that but have not been sure how to get them to look that nice...
