i am getting geared up for my trip to Dallas. with the help of PondBass blog posts, i've been able to map out some local places to go. i'm just worried that the cooler water temps might slow the fishing down too much. as if it wasn't hard enough already. any thoughts and help would be appreciated!
meanwhile, i've been tying flies like crazy. channeling Roughfisher, i've created my own custom wannabe dubbing blends. they are not nearly as nice and uniform, but let's hope they get the job done. (now i wonder if Roughfisher will share his custom kimchi recipe)
here are just a few flies that i have tied up (don't want to bore you to death). again, not pretty (i'm a lazy tier), but i think presentation will be more important than appearance. in some cases, i changed an ingredient or two because i didn't have it on hand.

regarding my previous post and the sexy shad fly, someone asked me about the jig hook i was using. fyi, for all the flies that i tie on jig hooks, i keel weight the flies a la Dan Blanton to get movement and also keep the hook point riding up.
as always, comments, criticisms, questions, and tips are welcome.
