Flies for 2012 - Striped Bass

I have been tying Fresh and Salt water patterns, preparing the upcoming season for striped bass and trouts.

This season my fishing will be done on fewer flies but tied with a little more attention than usual. I am still using epoxy but I have ordered the UV Epoxy from Loon Outdoors. Epoxy was great but it yellows and it is truly difficult to have consistency.

As a whole, I do not follow the patterns to the letter, instead I use different materials. My flies are far from being good looking but they fish well and are build strong.

Enough Talking - See below pictures of some of my saltwater patterns:
