Isn't that a jig hook?

Correct.  60 degree bend jig hook.

A guide I plan to be fishing with shortly recomended this pattern.  And I plan to tie up a dozen or so, as soon as the hooks I've ordered come in.

Does anybody know what the advantage of this style of hook is for a Clouser Minnow?

Thanks.

The sound quality is terrible, but it is good enough to follow along.

Tying Chat / Woven stone fly body
« on: January 26, 2014, 02:46:57 PM »

Woven body, the video

This method of weaving the bodies on large stone flies was taught to me by Tony Marasco, of Fly Tyers "Vice" way back when. Embroidery thread is the key ingredient.

I've tied this fly at the Texas FlyFishers' monthly meetings, and at some of the local retailers.
Here is the recipe:
Mustad 75980, size 6-10
6/0 Uni, Black, or color to match.
Pheasant tail fibers, for tail, and wig case
Ice Jig blade,
Embroidery thread, 2 contrasting colors
Hare dubbing, with guard hairs
Head cement

This free one may work too:

This was a "free to try" and had about 4 hidden programs in it.  It took 30 minutes to get rid of them, and then it kept locking up every time I tried to open a video with it.  It doesn't deserve the glowing write-up that Download.com gave it.

Time to go shopping in Amazon.com. 
1.  The reviews of the Movavi Video Converter 12 Personal Edition were so bad there is no way I'll spend the $40.  On to the next

General Discussion / Video format question, fly tying....
« on: January 26, 2014, 09:52:26 AM »
I found that I have multiple videos of fly tying, and fishing, that I've taken over the years with my waterproof camera. 

My problem is that the Quicktime(R) format, .mov, makes the files so large that it takes forever to share them.

None of the programs I have on hand will reduce the size, and I am not an Apple fan, so Quicktime(R) is not on my PC, nor will it be.

Does anybody have any suggestions?

What's the name of this krew?

MGM = Mardi Gras Minnow, so named because of the material used for the eyes.

Folks,

If one of you have made this trip before, please contact me.

I plan to lead this trip, but if we went today, it would be a Stevie leading Ray adventure.

Any help will be appreciated.
