I have been flyfishing for many years. I live 5 minutes away from the Provo river in Utah. I have spring break coming up in 3 weeks and will be doing a lot of fishing, so I will have plenty of time to test your flies, and let you know how they fish.

Hi, I'd like to apply as a fly tester. I've been fly fishing about 8 years and tying flies around 3 years. I love it! Best relaxation and stress reducer I've yet to experience. My fishing is in the Pacific NW, primarily for trout, salmon, and steelhead. I belong to a membership-restricted fishing club and have private property access to a number of ponds, lakes, and rivers not open to the public. The club is working to develop trophy fisheries in this area so there's lots of fun fishing. A good number are also fly fishers which makes it even better. I believe I'd give the flies a test on the Metolius for sure, and whatever else may open during your test period.

Don't know what else to say. Just might be fun to give someone else's flies a go for a while.

Thanks......

I would be interested in testing these fly's. I have fished these pat urns for several years, so it's not a question of whether they will catch fish but the quality of the fly. Will the hook hold up; will the material survive a reasonable time after hooking fish? These are the things I will test on several trout streams near my home.

Smile I just got a fly rod and reel from my parents for Christmas, and don't have any tackle for it yet ! So if I was picked, it would be the only thing I would have to use so I 'd give it a good tryout up on Straight river for Browns and Rainbows ! Also it would be fun trying it for Gills, Crappies, and Bass !

I would like to start things off by sending out a special thank you to canadagoes for these flies.Smile
After recieving these flies, I inspected everyone under my little magnifed glass that I use for tying and was every happy with there choice of hook and quality of material that they used to tie up these flies. I have used them on steelhead, rainbow trout, brown trout, crappie, panfish, and sucker. For the most part I have been very successful in hooking up and landing a few nice fish with these flies. A very memorable moment was when I was fishing down at the huron for some trout and tossed about 20 different flies at four rainbows for the past 30 minutes and could not even get a trout to look at a fly when all of a sudden an ant floated down the river between my legs and those trout started to fight over in who was going to eat it. I then tied on the RED ANT that came in the assortment. Low and behold I managed to catch 4 nice rainbows in the next 15 minutes. I have been using the bead head and the nymph flies every time out and have managed to catch fish every time out. The bead head flies are good for crappie where they give it just enough weight to drop it down in a school of spring spawning crappie, worked properly will drive them crazyWink. I did fool a small steelhead on the PM with the black nose streamer but the hook came out before we could land it. The grey wulff worked out very well that weekend too on the brown trout.
Again thank you very much for these flies.
I would recommend these flies out to anyone wants to catch a fish.SmileSmile

Yes Dave, I did lose 2 of them.Frown
I lost one of the bead head and one of the nymphs.
The bead head was on a nice crappier out on lake Neva and the nymph to a log in the Grand. Hoping to use them a little more since the opener is this weekend.

This another follow up to the flies that I recieved from CANADOGOES. Last week I went to the Little Manistee and the PM. Had very good sucess with these flies. The best one that seem to work no matter where I went was the RED ANT. Caught 2 nice browns on the little manistee and 3 bigger browns on the PM. Hooked into a nice steelhead and lost it. Broke off and my favorite little ant was gone. Did manage to do pretty good with the royal coachman and the golded ribbed hares ear flies, they both caught fish. Overall these flies have brought me in some good fish. I have caught rainbows, browns, crappies, sunfish, and steelhead.
I would like to send out a special thank you to CANADAGOES for these flies, I will be getting hold of them to get some more RED ANTS.Wink
