A little announcement

Hey everyone. Sorry for the lack of posts so far this week. Been working a lot and haven't had much time in front of the vise, or on the stream. I promise to get some new patterns posted tomorrow (lots of them!)

For tonight, I'd like to take a few minutes to let you all know about our newest (and first) site sponsor. They are called Rip Lips Fishing and their website is They are based out of Connecticut. I found these guys originally through Ebay, because they have great deals on Tungsten beads for tying. I've tied quite a few patterns with their beads (and caught quite a few fish with them!) so it's only fitting that I support them. If you go to most fly shops, you'll be able to pick up 20 tungsten beads for around $8-10. These guys have them at $11.99 for 100 packs! It's a great deal. They also have flies, fly boxes, and other fishing gear. Feel free to check out their site and stock up.

Here's a sneak peak at one of the new patterns I tied with their beads. I call it the Citrus CJ.

UTC ultra wire - brassie (Chartreuse)
Peacock Herl (thorax)
Goose biots - tan (tail)
Hungarian Partridge (legs)
