Last night for the first time in ages, I sat down at the vise to turn out a batch of flies. No doubt that last weekend's mission gave me the impetus to get in to it. I rattled out a few of the usuals (having noticed holes in the ranks of Pheasant Tail Nymphs and Hare's Ear Nymphs) and then set about solving the crab fly conundrum.
After a couple of attempts I managed a reasonable Furry Foam Crab or 2.
Tomorrow I'll see if the snaps will eat them.
