I have been asked to document the dimensions of the weed guard and tailing loop for the Mustad C52S size 2/0 and Tiemco 8089 size 2 hooks.  The 20 lb Hard Mason weed guard is   4 7/8 inches and the tailing loop is 2 inches. Please note where the weed guard is tied in on the hook. The Fuzzy Mouse and Fuzzy Perch Slider below utilize the weed guard shown.
I have been working on a tool set made with deer and reindeer antlers  They include a half hitch tool, a bodkin, and a double weed guard tool. 

K&K FLYFISHERS  ON A SATURDAY MORNING.
"THE EYES HAVE IT." The bugs in the pictures below are examples of what you can do after vewing both videos. They show different eyes tied in different sections of the bugs. In the two pictures on the left,  the first  bug on the left, has one set of eyes, the next two have two sets of eyes, the last two have multiple eyes in a row using two different techniques. Also the rabbit strips on 4 of the 5 bugs have been trimmed to imitate frog legs. Note the frog feet. The picture on the right are one of a kind experiments. 
Examples of recently mounted flies that were, or will be, auctioned for various groups such as PHWFF.
The Popper below is entitled "BLINK" in memory of Jerimiah Denton. Vietnam POW Hanoi Hilton. Passed away 3/28/14.
- …. .- -. -.- -.-- … ..- !!!  (THANK YOU).
He blinked the word TORTURE in morse code in a controlled interview with his north Vietnamese captors so the U S military would know the hostages were being tortured. That is the reason for BLINK! He put his life at risk for his fellow prisoners.

This is my "Frog leg" weed guard tied on a Mustad C52S size 2/0 or Tiemco 8089 size 2 hook. This was used for "The Eyes Have It" pictures above. and for the "Red Fish" bugs below. It is not as easy to tie as the tailing loop, but the legs stay separated and they do look like Frog Legs when the bug is fished. They really do work!
I had a need to stabilize my Wapsi Fly Tyers Z-Ment on the tying table so I could use it like head cement. The best bases are the antler  and the hard plastic hook box. You can even make one from the packaging bubble. 
HEART OF A VETERAN is displayed in a 4 inch dome and auctioned at PHWFF events. 
CFR CLOWN FISH is displayed in a 4 inch dome and was auctioned at the IFFF in Bend, Oregon. It has added verbiage. "WE ARE NOT CLOWNING AROUND WE WANT A CURE!"
“Mike’s Heart of a Veteran”

Now you know why it is true
A Veteran does bleed Red White and Blue.

For Sacrifices they have made 
They only ask one thing from thee,

“Remember me, Remember me”

The Next Level DVD
Below is my attempt at tyng Red Fish flies. They started as a Deer Hair version of a Spoon Fly and evolved into the bugs below. They are all tied on salt water hooks. The small bugs on a Mustad C70SD size 1/0 and 4, the longer bugs on a Mustad 34011 size 1. They do have lead dumb bell eyes for weight and they have been tied the same as the mouse pattern above and trimmed. This means the hair that floats has been removed, only the tips are tied in. They do sink at different rates, determined by the hook size and appropriate sized lead dumb bell eye.  I did also tie some as a swimming frog pattern and they really do look like a swimming frog! They do catch Kansas bass.
Of course it could not stop there. The two bugs below are Frog patterns that do not have lead eyes.  Pink and Green for me was a natural. 

FOURTH GENERATION BILL FISH FLIES.  
These are tied on a Partridge Sea Beast #6/0 hook. The stinger hook is an Owner SSW 5311-151 5/0. It is attached with a 70 Lb Titanium Leader wire that is attached thru the eye of the base hook.  I do tie these with 200 Denier Gel Spun Thread for strength. I use my own techniques as demonstrated in the videos. I tie one bunch (BIG) on the bottom and one bunch  (BIG) on the top and pack the hair with my fingers. The basic techniques are demonstrated in the first DVD. The eye patterns are demonstrated in the NEXT LEVEL DVD. 
The song "Dante’s Prayer" was written to describe Dante’s Journey through the 9 circles of Hell in “Dante’s Inferno”. After his journey Dante is pleading with God to:  “Please Remember me, Please Remember Me.” 
I believe all veterans have experienced their own journey through Dante's 9 circles of Hell and in my verse they are asking their God to: “Please Remember Me,  Remember Me."
