Mods may want to lock the old random images thread to steer people here. Just a thought, may be some minuses.

Good idea Bill. I'll give it a couple days to allow for a smooth transition.

My old friend Judy Skehan and her charges bird hunting with me in Hardwick. Judy used to drive up from S.C. each fall to hunt.

Seems someone may want to ask a question in the future about an old picture etc.

 

Something like where was that, what is that, because I would like to go there or I saw one of those.

 

If you do chose to lock perhaps temporary until it falls away?

There are so few of us these days it may fall away with out issue.

A Golden-crowned Kinglet

 

Fairly common but nice to see some color in the winter.

Oh those little beauties always remind me of me as a bratty kid out shooting house sparrows with my Daisy. I shot one of those without knowing what it was. I went over and picked up the body and was awed by its beauty. I felt so bad. I gave up shooting tweety birds forever.

What's this pattern called or is it one of your own creations?

I know a guy who'd like those orange flies @zak-striper :naughty:

As Bill mentioned, I'm fan of orange/yellow/red patterns for landlocked salmon, trout & smallies.

 

Here's some patterns I regularly tie. 

 

Woods Special

I want to add these two patterns to my selection. These aren't my pics. The 1st one is a saltwater pattern that I want to downsize for salmon

That pattern came about from a Highschool shop teach who challenged me come up with a trout fly pattern in school colours . He loved it caught many trout in the spring with it , Very simple fly pattern the only changes I've made was mixing up the wing material. Originally tied with calf tail. But I've used marabou artic fox , bucktail and even died hackle feathers . It was originally named NHSspl. after the school . After the teacher passed I named it after the teacher now I just call it a Challenger . I've had good luck with it for Landlocks and trout even brookies I just vary up the size.

Brown trout in particular have a great fondness for it . 

Btw I love your work . I got a kick out of seeing Joe Sterling's Wood special . I knew him very well he was a bit of a character but who isn't . I asked where he got his chenille from with out a word he walks away . He comes back a minute or so later with a box full of it . He reached in and grabbed a big handful of it and heaves on the counter, He goes here this is where I get it from. He was a good egg though very dry sense of humor. Send me a PM and I'll throw a coupleP1150225.JPG.3bfc1a8be1b840c3b9e19ec9ffaecc9d.JPG at you .
