Pom Skater

My goal for this year on our annual Bulkley River trip is to land a steelhead on the dry.

Shane, that sounds like such a great time. Here's another option in case the POM Skater is too bulky:




All the best and good luck! CopperMan.

Bulkley Bandit. This is a simple but super effective fly that has produced consistently for me.

Alaska Assassin modeled off of one of the flies “plugs” posted since the Bulkley also has some coho running.

Thanks for the suggestions plugs! Got a few of the Roll Call’s tied up but ran out of time for tying up others. Had to pack up the rig last night and help Melissa clean before the pet sitter shows up. I’ve got s ton of things in my boxes already so I’m sure I’ve got plenty of options.

Talk to you all when I get back in two weeks.

Trying out new ties with the Dave Mcneese Blue Heron Spay Irons I got the other day.

I had a minor heart attack today so I'm staying home and not going fishing this weekend (wife's orders) so I'll be tying up some flies for the next few days. With my sense of humor and the day's events this fly got it's name

Plugs, you’re a real artist on the tying bench. I really appreciate your contributions to this forum. I hope you have your ticker taken care of and keep fishing, tying and posting for years to come.
Thank you.

Hello everyone,
I'm brand new to tying and I have a basic question.
I've been tying X-Caddis in various forms and am having intermittent trouble with the wings spinning around the shank....am I right that I'm just not tightening it down enough with the initial wraps?
I feel like I'm right on the edge of snapping the thread when I tighten down as hard as I 'want' to (I have snapped it a few times).
Is my thread too thin (Uni thread 6wt) or is this just a nuance thing that I need to keep practicing?
Thanks for any advice.

I don't know if you can see it in this picture but I get the hair wet and it's a more of a pinch the hell out of it when you make those 1st 3 or 4 wraps. There's less flair and rolling if you have the hair full lenght when you first tie it on as well and keep that wing pinched the whole time till you cut the head end to length and take a few turns back through it making your way to the eye.

do you wet the whole stack of hair? like with spit?
...and just never let go until you cut the head? like are you whip finishing while still pinching from the initial hold or cutting the head and then whip finishing?
