Five Hundred Faithful Followers. Let’s celebrate!

TGIF, fellow Currentseamsers. And thank you for being part of the Faithful Five Hundred! To celebrate, we’re doing our customary flies-tied-by-Steve giveaway. Here are the contest rules:

1) No purchase necessary.

2) You must be a follower of currentseams to enter. (If you’re not one already, you become a follower by clicking on the “Stay current with currentseams” button on the home page.)

3) To enter, leave a comment on this thread saying you wish to enter AND share with us the name of a favorite fly pattern. One entry per person. Deadline for entering is 11:59pm March 31, 2017 (no foolin’). Three winners will be chosen at random. The winners will be notified in the comments section of this thread or by email, and will be responsible for sending me their address so I can ship the flies out. Sorry, I can only ship to U.S. addresses.

4) All decisions by me are final.

Thanks again for reading and following currentseams.

A dozen classic North Country spiders — and they could be yours. One lucky winner will get to swim these in a river this spring. They’re tied on light wire hooks with Pearsall’s Gossamer silks. Left cork: Winter Brown, Black Magic. Right cork, clockwise from 3 o’clock: Orange Partridge, Snipe and Purple, Grey Partridge, Poult Bloa.

    I would like to be entered. My favorite fly last year was the partidge and orange. I learned a lot about fishing the wet fly reading your posts.

  2. Drew says:

    In with Isonychia

  3. Zak Griefen says:

    I wish to enter! Currently my favorite fly is a Usual, followed closely by Snowshoe Emerger a la Bob Wyatt. Still love your Drowned Ant, though. Zak

  4. David Larson says:

    I’d like a crack at the “flies for five hundred”. My favorite fly pattern is a March Brown Wet. It just looks right, though I catch less when I use it. Maybe time to go on the river with you Steve. Cheers and congrats on 500.

  5. Avram says:

    I would love to enter….Culton’s famous Squirrel and Ginger; queen of the waters is my second favorite!

  6. Alton Blodgett says:

  8. Mike fatse says:

    Congrats on getting to 500!
    To Infinity and beyond.
    Thanks for your support of CVTUs banquet last night… You Rock!
    See you at the FCF&G meeting
    I love all the wet Fly but the squirrel and ginger is killer.

  9. Andrew Werney aka 245 says:

    Ever growing. I like it. From #245 I would like to enter. Favorite pattern is squirrel and ginger for searching.

  10. Jack Crowley says:

    Royal Coachman, Steve.
    Inherited from my Dad’s fly box.

  11. Gary Bogl says:

    Thank you for the invitation. I would like to be entered into your contest. One of my favorite flies is the Platt River Spider.

  12. David Bennett says:

    The photos are gr8 because for a guy who doesn’t tie they really show the end result clearly. Maybe i will get lucky.

  13. William Macgeorge says:

    Please enter me in your contest. I think I’m going to a single pattern this year – Soft hackle pheasant tail and partridge.

  14. Greg Tarris says:

    Really enjoy your comments or I would not be here lol!!

    Being that BWOs are around almost all the time. According to a book I read by an entomologist, BWOs constitute the greatest percentage of dry flies trout eat because they are so ubiquitous.

    I would go with a comparadun BWO

  15. Levi Randall says:

    I wish to enter, please. Favorite fly is a Klinkhammer. I really enjoy reading your posts.

  16. John F. Carson says:

    I wish to enter the contest. My favorite fly would most likely be the soft hackle that is at the moment catching fish, but if forced to choose, I would go with Leisenring’s Spider.
    I had the good fortune to attend graduate school close to his home town and was able to see many of the waters he fished. Sometimes, I could sense his presence.

  17. John Genovesi says:

    Please include me in the raffle.

    One favorite of mine is

    Glass bead zebra midge

  18. Jorge Rodriguez says:

    Count me in. I’ll be chasing the spring stripers with an R.L.S. Sure Thing very soon.

  19. Justin Fuller says:

    I would like to enter. Favorite fly: Ken’s Crazy Any.

  20. Doug Duvall says:

    Please enter my name into the fray! My favorite pattern is one called “Tan Flymph” which is a great searching pattern for me. Small sizes seem to work the best, 14’s and 16’s mostly!
    I was prowling around your site and wow! It is fantastic! I will visit here often and continue to enjoy your other entries in the archives!
    Thanks for creating such a great site!
    Doug Duvall

    I would like to be entered, my favorite fly, the “Frenchie”.

  24. Chuck Shamback says:

    I would like to enter. My favorite fly is Ray’s Fly because it doesn’t have to followed to the letter to catch fish. I have tied hundreds of them, all different colors, and they all work.

  25. kathleen grose says:

    Congratulations on 500!. I like any wet fly.

  26. Vincent trzeciak says:
