    Been tying some poppers, Christmas Tinsel streamers, wooly buggers and wooly worms. Going to tie some more foam stuff this weekend and give yet another try at spinning some deer hair for bass bugs (my last attepmt was a dismal failure so will give it another go).

    My warm water boxes (yes,multiple!) are still overflowing from the lack of use last year but I've been tying some deerhair streamers lately for sinktip applications. If your looking for a really cool foam pattern for bream, I suggest adding some of Kent's Tokyo spiders. Craft foam, thread, rubber legs, and a hook. I tie them in yellow/black, chart green/black, and black/red/white usually in sizes #8 and #10.
    heres a link to the pattern.

    I've been tying all winter and have stocked up pretty well. However, I need some cooperation from the weather. We have had snow on the ground twice this winter and several days of snow fluries. What happened to golbal warming in the south? Can't wait to get a break and flip some flies on some semi-warm water in MS.

    For me it's been gotchas, clousers, crazy charlies, deceivers, and you can bet I got some crabs!
    If it swims throw a fly at it!
