Hi all -- My friend Harvey, your worthy moderator, told me about this board and suggested posting some flies. I see that Steve Farrar posted some of his very inspiring patterns, and that others have posted some great flies as well, so I'll contribute a few too. I tie for both fresh and saltwater, but since this board seems to be pretty Northeast/saltwater focused, here are some baitfish and squid patterns I like to tie for anything ranging from stripers, blues and albies, to tarpon, snook and roosterfish. First, here are some baitfish in a style I call "Kinky Muddlers":

Default Smaller Baits

Finally, here are some smaller baits, like peanuts, sand eels, spearing and bay anchovies. Have fun, guys.

Johnny amazing flies. I met you at the fly show in Somerset and a great pleasure it was to meet you. I have the KINKY MUDLER you made for me on the side displayed with a Bunker pattern from Steve Farrar until I get a shadow box to put them in. I noticed you have used a jig hook on a couple of them. Is this because they can sit on the bottom better or give them more of natural movement.

I first met Jonny at the Somerset Fly Fishing Show a number of years ago. Jonny is a very talented and innovative tyer, and his patterns have been featured in all the fly fishing magazines.

Jonny combines the best features of natural and synthetic materials in order to simulate the movement of a baitfish.

He's very approachable at the show and will demonstrate his patterns for all to see. Anthony was lucky enough to get a private lesson and was handed the finished fly to use as a model when he ties his first "Kinky Muddler".

We had the hardest time keeping those "Fish heads"? on our hooks when we tied them with our club. Do you need a special hook. (Third photo down in Smaller flies). Thanks in advance.

Great ties all around BTW



Hauler,

I've used Fish Skulls many times and never had a problem with the head staying on the hook. Below is the Fish Skull reference chart. After I complete the tying I cover the wraps with superglue and push the skull into place. It's important that you create a thread dam in front of the skull to help keep it in place.

Harvey


? Size SMALL for hook sizes typically #8, #6, #4.

? Size SMALL-MEDIUM for hook sizes typically #4, #2, #1.

? Size MEDIUM for hook sizes typically #2, #1, #1/0.

? Size LARGE for hook sizes typically #2/0, #3/0, #4/0

Default Hi Johnny King

Thank you for sharing with us the pics of your beautiful creations! They are amazingly beautiful!!! As I worked down the list of pics each teaser got better and better if that is possible. Then I got to the last pic with the baby bunker, oh my, I wanted t grab one and go fluking. I could visualize my double digit fluke salivating trying to eat that teaser.

Thank you!

Folks, thanks to PNutBunker and his tying friends that post here for us we are being treated to some of the best creative crafted teasers we will ever see. What talent these people have.

Please take a minute and thank these people with a post telling what you like. That is the least we can do to show appreciation.

If I was not a rod builder I would like to be able to say I could tie a nice effective teaser. I have tied a teaser or two but do not have the time for rods and teasers both.

Thank you again!
