All the reading, blogging, tying, and thinking about fishing doesn't satisfy my hunger for being on the stream -- it makes it worse.
Here are a couple new patterns using some cool streamer skull heads. As well as some tinkering with deer hair heads. In both patterns I've loaded a lot of weight onto the hook. The skull heads are nice and heavy. The deer head pattern has a moderate sink rate--wrapped two layers of wire on the shank (otherwise I'm sure it would float). Deer hair is sweet for shaping heads but it's so buoyant and I want these guys to sink.
