Tying Some Streamers

Postby nokinrocks » Sat Aug 18, 2012 2:17 am

I will be heading to Montana in 6 weeks and I am making a point to hve a box full of large streamers. Here are the patterns I plan to tie

Sex Dungeon
Butt Monkey
Heifer Groomer
Meat Whistle
Peanut Envy
Wooly Bugger
Hairy Fodder

Most of these have single hook and articulated versions and I will tie both in multiple colors.

So far I have gotten a good start on the Peanut Envy and Heifer Groomer.

Cool loking set up. Looks like a production all right, can Blaze tie any flies yet?

Thanks, Blaze doesn't tie but he sometimes donates a little fur to the project.

Your fly tying room looks great Alan! Great job on the flies too. Be sure and keep me posted with a trip report and some awesome pics. Good luck.

Well it's a mess but thanks... The trip isn't until 9/27 so I have over a month... It is going to be hard not to test out a few of those streamers on some bass before I leave :)

That's one fishy-looking streamer!
Blaze looks a little sheepish -- like he just finished off a squirrel tail he managed to slip off your desk.

I sorted out some materials and laid them out on the floor, only to look down and find Blaze wallowing in the pile.

I have a golden retriever that was involved in a pretty nasty accident a few years ago and had to stay indoors while he recovered. I came home one day to find a bucktail in the living room. This was strange because my tying room is across the house from the front door. As I walked toward the den (tying room), I saw a trail of tying materials. I reached the den to find most of my tying stuff all over the room. I cleaned everything up, but over the years I will start looking for something and come to the conclusion that it was a casualty of Doc's fly tying picnic. I still think that dog can read price tags, he ignored most of the materials that I have gathered myself and went straight for the stuff bought at the flyshop.

Funny.... I took Blaze into The Fish Hawk yesterday and I think he enjoyed it more than Pet Smart...

Nicely organized set up! Mine looks like a bomb exploded in it and I don't have a dog to blame. Go get 'em out west!

PS - want a Shimmy Fish to try out?

LOL... A Shimmy Fish would be great, let me know what you need from me. You still have my address from the Hairy Fodder info you sent?

If I posted a picture of my room they would kick me off the forum. I just dumped it all in the floor and started over organizing and throwing stuff away. Someone tell me why I have 42 colors of dubbing. :? All I use is pink.
