The past few months have been a bit of a whirlwind, but here are some flies that have been coming From the Vice. Enjoy!
Here’s what has been coming From the Vice over the past few months, mostly. What’s not pictured are some size 18 soft hackle BWOs, which is a pattern that just works really well. Hover over the picture for a description of the flies.
Casey Smartt’s Nose Job
Some Clouser-style flies with different materials.
Some variations on a Swingin’ D 2.0
Two (of eight) Hammerhead crayfish patterns.
239 Flies A2Z minnows – freshwater versions
The high water selection
Some small crayfish
A half dozen Headbangers to fill an order
Some larger Pheasant Tails for warmwater (on a size 8 Gamakatsu Bonefish hook)
Some small Carp Breakfasts
Two Headbangers for the personal stash.
A small crayfish to use up some extra materials
Some crayfish versions of Drew Chicone’s Swamp Cabbage Shrimp
Shumaker’s Shimmering Minnow, with a wiggle tail and cone head.
Some Clouser Swimming Nymphs.
Baitfish made out of Baitfish Emulator Flash
My attempt at a smaller-sized Buford.
Zimmerman’s Backstabber in two colors
A small Double Barrel Popper, for panfish
Some Buggers tied with Cohen’s Carp Dub (in a dubbing loop) for the body
I call the one below the Hot Rod Swingin’ D 2.0. I took the back hook from a factory-tied Swingin’ D (it would cock out at an angle when the beads were where they were supposed to be), added a 20mm shank in the middle, and tied a new front hook. I’m looking forward to trying this one in the water to see how it moves.
