    Painting jerkbaits for big trout

    I've got a nice little stash of them on the way as well but mine haven't arrived quite yet. I'm thinking with that color that a guy could add a few dots with a sharpie and make a decent trout imitation ? Certainly won't be a Doty special but could possibly work. I'll be the guinea pig with them next month.....

    I have the tool and I'm trying a decent bug but it spinning around the hook. Any tips?

    Quick trip, report w pics

    pretty fish and a good report. When I started fly fishing this summer I kind of feel in love with it, I bought some waders thinking maybe sometime I would wade below the dam if I didn't have my boat. Well I'm on this taney fly fishing facebook group and I swear every time I see a picture of a fish there is a ton of people in the back ground all close to each other. Not sure that looks like much fun to me so i'll probably stick to my boat fishing or use it to beach somewhere in the lower trophy area away from folks. I just can't believe how packed it looks during the week of late.

    I was hoping to make some where the bead is attached to the hook, basically threaded on the hook.

    i have a mold that will pour a 1/80th ounce head and a size 10 hook so that is what i'll use on those. I want some both with and without a jig head. I will also check out the tubes or make one out of a pen. Thanks so far guys!

    what size of jig and any idea on a hook size? I pour my own heads so I could do this as well for a variety.

    just put beads on a hook? what size or kind of bead? we talking something you can get at a craft store or something special I need to buy somewhere else? Also thanks for the tip on the McFlyfoam, I just ordered some of that. I would like to know more about the beads as well so I can make both.

    I may not be using enough material perhaps
  13. I think I have midges down pretty decent so now I'm moving onto egg flies. I can tie jigs, Micro jigs and midges but my egg flies suck. I need tips or hints. I've watched a dozen you tube videos and mine just don't look good. Ugh. Frustrating. These are on a size 6 hook FYI.

    Observations, 10/4

    Can you explain a little on how the different ways to fish a megaworm? I have some tied up but I'm unable to get a clear answer on the proper way to fish them.
