    Default Hoping these guys work for pinks, etc.

    Tied what are supposed to resemble coho muddlers and handlebar variants -- all size 6. The buggers are tied on some ols SS Mustads I had and the shanks are a bit short, but then all my flies come up short, especially when examined from closer than five metres. Note how no two are alike, even though they are supposed to be ...

    Your top right look like what the standard handlebars that are used around here. Don't be afraid to go just a bit smaller as well. I doubt youll even get around to trying all those out...I've had a single handlebar last me all season.

    JW: Based those two on the handlebar tied by Aidan of Nile Creek Fly Shop on Youtube.
    Adrock, thanks for your kind comment. My nephew is a commercial tier; I'm just an aging baby boomer who has to squint and swear just to thread his bobbins ...

    I'd say those will do very well.

    Yep, good ties there. Should be plenty of fish at the end of your line coming soon. Just get a few more of each so you don't get caught short. 2 of each fly is the bare minimum for a day of fishing in my books. I tend to sacrifice at least one to the rocks behind me, and occasionally one to the fish in front of me, so I try to always have 3 or 4 of my go-to patterns. That way if I have a good day of casting and don't loose too many, I can trade one or two with other people on the beach Click here to enlarge
