Thanks.... But due to some of my medical issues, prolonged or repeated standing and walking along the creek/river is out for me, I also recently sold the kayak, and my boat is down for some much needed up & or retro grades. Then I'll sell it and wait for the new bigger boats come in by getting on a waiting list. BLAHAAAAA

What's taking so long though is first there was 40 days of rain...... followed immediately by sizzle your skin off like bacon summer heat. Next (wouldn't you know it?) a plague of locusts (cicadae) But the adults called them locusts in the 60s when I was a kid and it stuck. droughts, and fires, Let me stop here before it makes it to politics LOL!!! But the aforementioned happenstances To an average layman would or could have almost seemed biblical in nature... But to your average Texan it's more like "Yawn".... just the beginning of summer. But truthfully I have just been enjoying the AC a bit too much lately LOL!!!! That and tying flies keeps my hands busy and out of trouble.

My latest.... Sunny

Nice tying and video. I wish I lived walking distance from a pond or creek to test my creations like that. I hope you don't mind me copying you, but I'm gonna make some knock offs of those myself. But I'm planning on doing some crawfish, frogs, & tadpoles next though.

Things like this frog popper.

Well the crawdad looks like a shrimp but the water strider came out ok. Then there is the tadpole, it's a Beaver skin zonker with a foam popper head turned backwards on the hook. To neutralize the buoyancy of the foam head I gave it 13 tight wraps of solder around the hook shaft starting one wrap back from the eye of the hook. Then there is the frog popper.... Foam head, green tinsel lower body, and fluffy marabou for the legs as well as the tail and claws on the crawdad

I'm not sure what to call it but it swims well and it ought to get some fish's attention. It's weighted to sink fairly fast but the fluffy marabou sort of parachutes it a lil bit.

That's 13 flies in 2 weeks, not bad for someone swore he was going cold turkey on the fly tying habit..... This is worse than quitting cigarettes

nice flies! Are those the "booby flies" which have foam at the head? Do you fish them with sinking line? I tried them a few years ago, never got them to work for me.

I don't have a lot of experience with booby flies. I have only fished with them once. But I did manage to catch two crappie with a green one. Yes they have the foam head and body. But I use a little lead wire on the hook shank to give them almost neutral buoyancy with floating line (meaning they will sink but very slowly). I tried them with no weight and did not like how they swam.
