    Nice streamers! Where do you get the hooks for the Meat Whistle? What type of hook is it?

    Cool thanks! I know Daniel can order those for me. I might have to try that pattern out. It has appealed to me for a while but I've been too lazy to try and track down the hooks...

    It's a great pattern. Just fish it slow, hopping it back. I've caught browns, bows, and carp on the Clinch with it. If you need the recipe for either the Meat Whistle or Craven's version of the Sex Dungeon, check out Charlie's Fly Box. There are some great step-by-step recipes for these and lots of other patterns at:

    Yes, I plan on getting one up. Wanted to do one last week but time got away. I'll have it up either tonight or tomorrow morning...
