Mine should be out by Wednesday. I'm in the middle of my night shifts. As soon as they are over I'll finish off the batch. Got the new AJ Chironomid hooks and some tungsten beads from Canadian Llama. What a nice looking hook.
Ok, so I sent in two ties as well. I origionally tied up a size 15 black with red and silver wire, and a white tungsten bead head. I'm not really happy with the ribbing, I had a lot of trouble with the two wires, so I decided to send them any way but tie up another one as well. I think the red / silver one will fish, it's just not the neatest of ties.
The second one is a size 15 black with silver wire, a silver tungsten bead, and a tuft of white para post in front of it all as gills. Both ties are on the new AJ Chironomid hooks.
Hey Guys. I am on a fishing trip in the interior. I will get on the tying as soon as I get back home. Probably Tuesday or Wednesday. After this trip I have a few more ideas but I will either do a variation of the red black and red, bloodworm or JohnK's redbutt green. Maybe two. Cheers
