Pete,

As always: very nice flies and something that is bound to catch fish!

I've been fooling around with Popovics' Fleye Foils lately and making some small baitfish, but nothing with the variation and fantasy that yours display.

I've NEVER been a big phan regarding the pre-phrabricated phly phuselage notion... but...
"if you build it, they will come"...
'might as well have the phur n' pheatherz pre-attached and internal magnets for a click-on-click-off quick-change application...
To each their own... but I digress...
Here's a "Wrapped n' Welded Three Pheather Phlat Wing" that was enthusiastically "assembled" in the Area61 Skunk Works by ME and phinished with BB magic voodoo acrylic...

Pete,

I do agree with you on the prefabricated parts, but I doubt that the average tyer is able to obtain with plain materials what can be done with fly foils with less skill. My own first attempt, which I have named the Foileel, does look pretty convincing both above and under water.

Aaahhh, Florian, that begs the age old conundrum... Idea

How can you get experience if you have NO job... Question
hmmm...

The T-Tailed Phunny Phish are extremely leader shy... Rolling Eyes

The Yellow Eyed Devil Marauding Snapper Blues have NO regard... Shocked

Use wire and save the phly [which will look as if it was run through a wood chipper] and the False Albies will take a pass...

I really do admire your flies, although I have been a fresh-water North Country style fly-dresser for most of the time. I have done some salt-water fishing for the smaller cousins of your targets.
I never did subscribe to the attitude that 'mackerel bashing' was strictly for the once-a-year holiday
day fishers. Some of the most exciting fishing experiences have been catching mackerel on light spinning tackle using simple sandeel/silver baitfish imitations. We don't get the tuna on this side much, certainly not to be able be able to develop an obsession with them as you have. I make no bones about it, given the chance, I would have done. I am not sorry about my fishing experience has been mainly with brown trout in our Scottish small burns (creeks), rivers and lochs, using mainly wet flies. But, fishing is fishing, and Halford and his friends were not the only so called 'purists', they can be found in all spheres of fishing, fresh water wet flies are no exception.
I think your flies are superb examples of imitations of fish food, which is what we are all trying to achieve. Great stuff, keep up the good work.. You've cheered me up a lot at 05.00 AM.

Thank you Donald...
your kind words really do mean a lot to me...
Martin is a wonderful host and has made a great place to visit and share our common and diverse interests...
This is a very civilized and safe harbour in which to spend quality time... GOOD VIBRATIONS !
The phact that I've brightened you day [or anyone's day] with my incoherent banter and photos phrom the phringe, all the better!
I appreciate any and all encouragement!
My background has been almost entirely in shore salt water... with the occasional safari off shore or to the interior where things don't need to washed off at the end of the day...
My sweet water tying is abysmally limited and basically downsized versions of what I tye for my Striper/Blue/Albie phishin'...
This November I'll be spending some quality time with Faruk Ekich [check out his "Ultimate Bobbin" and "Damaseal Vise"... amazing!] at the Int'l Fly Tying Symposium at Somerset, NJ...
I hope to be properly schooled and to return home with some fresh water phuzzie notions...
ya' know what "they" say about teaching an old dog new tricks...
weshallsee!?

This is what the soup de jour has to offer... 'more phalse albie phodder...

Gentlemen,
I couldn't agree more with Pete, this is a nice and quite place to exchange views on the second best way to spend time.
In my FF life I have tried a few things. Seems there are pros and cons not to live close to fishable water.
I am home to fresh water, fishing the same river in the 33rd season that is close to my birth town, now a three hour drive), and there is and I hope there always will be a fish smarter than me in the water. Besides that my job takes me to prime fishing spots on occasion at leats it used to, these days it is more Asia). That is the way I started in the salt (or as Pete puts it "where you have to rinse the tackle") on the island of Fyn in Denmark. New Zealand and Alaska flights were paid for by someone else in the better days.
I also lived 2 years a little north of Pete on Cape Anne, stripers and blues.

Pete's flies are great, as are the ones Donald showed (as said earlier I teid a few and they were successfull in the Gerrman midlands).
My tying is far from being as presentable as either of yours, but I take great pleasure from exchanging views and the occasional joke.
TL and always a hand of water under the keel (your both boat fisherman and the customary dry socks are meaningless in this case)
Florian
PS @ Pete your saltwater flies would work for Northern Pike without altering a bit. Unfortunately we are in wire tippet territory again, but large trout taking pike streamer don't care that much at least every now and then

Pete, Florian, Donald,

Thanks for the kind words. As long as you guys and a few others keep posting, I feel that there's a good reason to keep this running. I enjoy the calm tone and the great flies, and it might not be busy and high traffic, but it has its charm.

Martin
