Catskill influenced flies incorporating modern materials
(and drunk cellphone photos in the woods)
Very Interesting!! Have you used this pattern before and was it successful?
I have never used the pattern before, in fact, with the amount of small vinyl tubing I used, it would sink pretty quick. I was inspired by planetrout's recent post where he did a "broken back cream tiger midge" it looked like a pretty neat idea, so I more or less challenged myself to trouble tying a n emerger somewhat along the same lines. Check out his patterns, probably much more successful for December, at least here in the Northeast. Thanks for checking it out Kevin--- don't give up in the cold weather also, between me and by buds, we landed about 40 trout Saturday and Sunday!
Looks great! How long did it take to tie up? I bet it would get hit hard by some trout.
Maybe 15-20 min... I've been hittin the larva lace hard lately, I've been having insomnia lately, so its been putting me at the vise late. LoL. I think I made that fly at like 2am. I'll use it soon enough, but right now most trout I've landed are like 8" or smaller, so those Sz 14 are a little big. Thanks for stopping by! -N8
