The PlipperPike: One of the strangest fly-contraptions ever to see daylight in GFF partner Martin Joergensen's vice (which has seen some strange flies). It's a tube fly. It uses one basic material. It's tied without thread. It's ugly, but it works. It's a popper with a lip - a Plipper.

Gift wrapping string fly
I have some remote relatives in Boston who occasionally sends over christmas gifts to my kids. This year the gifts were packed with some particularly interesting string. This string was braided in the colors red and green with some shiny material laid in. It said "flies" all over it! I scavenged the remains from the unpacking and stoved it away between my fly tying materials.
