Small flies

I get a kick out of tying some small flies. They are a lot of fun as I try to pay attention to the detail of the small patterns.

Just finished up some more flies for a fly shop. Here are some tellico nymphs, y2k eggs, zebra midges #20, and some stripper midges #24.

Ribbit, Ribbit

I got a little time today to fish a farm pond. I had a couple new fly patterns I wanted to test. I had one fly that did an outstanding job for me that I didn't even try the other patterns. The fish gave their approval on my swimming frog pattern. I was even surprised with a couple catfish that just hammered this fly. Here are some of the fish that fell to the swimming frog. The fly is still a work in progress and I don't have a good picture of it yet but you can see it in the pictures.
