Since I've never been able to solve the problem as to why the pics I UL to my posts show up only as thumbnail size I have to use this section to show my pics.

This pics are related to the thread about "the dubbing debate2: to spin or loop"

Many of the thoraxes on these nymphs was created with a dubbing loop.

Thanks guys! Jesse I might have pretty nymphs but I no longer nymph for trout, in the traditional sense. Where I fish in the East and when I go to MT in July, there is no need to ever consider nymphing. All those nymphs and about three other fly boxes were tied pretty much just for Great Lakes creeks and steelhead.

I do sometimes trail a little #18 BH on a piece of 5X about 6" long behind my dry in MT.

Some cool flies for winter tiers to consider.

GREAT looking flies! This gives me inspiration to go back to the bench and improve my skills.

Roguerat,

"GREAT looking flies!"

Thank you Sir!

I started tying again on Monday. I reviewed all my Catskill & Montana boxes, well over 4,000 flies, and decided that other than a dozen caddis pupa and some PMD emergers I really don't need to tie any more flies. However I probably will tie another 200 or so by the end of March just to keep busy during the day.

Wbranch-

I've only been tying small flies for 4 years now, before that I was 100% bass-bugs and Pike flies...Dahlberg Divers, Hair-poppers and all.

I figure my learning curve is still headed 'up' and your description of materials, techniques, and the close-up pics are a great tutorial.

As always beautiful flies Matt!
I surprised some of your boxes haven't "accidentally" gotten mixed in with Louis' gear. ;)

And this veiled accusation comes from a guy who still has my neoprene half finger gloves from last April. Hmmm.
