Chell's frog

Chell's frog

 This floating frog will make subtle sounds when jerked and even dive when pulled for distances.  Simple and inexpensive to tie, too.

Chell's Permanent Eye Fly

Chell's Permanent Eye Fly

Reading about eyes falling off, I wanted to create something that could not lose an eye. Reading about crease flies gave me an idea. It's still a project, so your final steps might differ from mine.

Chell's Floating Ant

Chell's Floating Ant

Chell's panfish attractor

Chell's panfish attractor

 Easy fly to tie that seems to attract hits from any fish in the vicinity.  I've caught a lot of panfish, bass and a few catfish with this pattern.  The colors and exact materials can be changed for whatever waters you're fishing.
