Will be fishing a spring creek next week. Thought I might need a scud or sow bug pattern. This is what I came up with - one in a darker color without a bead head and the other in more traditional color with a bead head. Hope they work!!!
I'm using Orvis' ice dubbing with a gold ribbing and shell back of zip lock bag.

Tied a better version of the deer hair funnel dun fly. This one is a biot bodied Blue Winged Olive. The deer hair is a dyed blue/dun color. After tying this fly, I layed it on a table and the wind blew it all over the table. Wherever it came to rest, it rested, as designed, upside down.
Thanks for looking.

This is a size 14 BWO Sparkle Dun. I took 3 photos to try to give an idea of what the fly looks like from a couple different angles. This fly is an adaptation of Craig Mathews of Blue Ribbon Flies in West Yellowstone of the original Haystack fly.
In this case, I used deer hair dyed blue.
Thanks for looking,

I have begun tying parachute flies with a different method of tying off the hackle which does not leave a messy head. I always hated the messy head on parachutes tied down in the traditiional method.
This is a size 20 floating midge pattern.
Also tied a size 20 Blue Winged Olive emerger in a paraloop style.
This pattern is the "Bottle Washer" suggested by Jason Borger
These are a couple of patterns I tied up this morning. Am sure someone has tied them before, but I haven't seen them.
