We have some nice flies here but I would like to see some more participation! Come on people, use this as an opportunity to improve your skills or share great patterns... Show us what you've got!

Having a little difficulty using macro on my camera. Silver Creek has tried to talk me thru it in the past, but issues remain. Would welcome input.

If its ok we seem to have a few floaters so here is something that goes down where the painted fish lives. The body is off in color but you get the idea........so take it and improve it.A few .015 lead wraps under the thorax will help to get it down.Be safe

Some fish do fall for flies as crappy as this.

Stonefly, trying to tell what the body is on your fly. Is that foam or something else? Either way it looks like it will catch some fish for sure!

Olesmoke, I like the nymph pattern. Looks like a straightforward tie and will definitely interest the fish...

The egg sac is foam, and the body is golden yellow poly yarn. I hadn't tried poly as a body until I saw yours. Would think it should float ok even though it's pretty tightly wrapped. The wing is light yellow poly. Hook is #16 C53S.
