Winter’s Hope (Attraction for the colder days)

Winter's Hope Steelhead Flies

Winter's Hope (Winter Steelhead Fly)

Found this beautiful pic, but cannot locate notes on who took it…I did not. So, no attribution. Those flies positively entice the flyfisher and I am sure that certain muscled fish as well!

Purple & Lime Glowing Caddis (Nagy’s Candy Caddis)

Nagy's Candy Caddis

Nagy Candy Caddis

Nagy’s Candy Caddis

Hook: Dai Riki 135, sizes 8-12

Bead: Gold bead to match hook size

Thread: Danville, fluorescent green, 6/0

Body: Flat silver tinsel underbody, Spirit River chartreuse Jelly Rope plastic cord

Collar: Purple or blue Estaz chenille, trimmed to shape

For a neat body, after tying in tinsel, secure piece of Jelly Rope along the hook shank then wrap Jelly Rope back toward the hook eye over the previous wraps. Stretch the Jelly Rope as you wind it, controling the diameter of the rope and tapering the body at the hook bend.

Purple and blue are under-used colors on Lake Erie. They are visible to steelhead in low light conditions due to their shorter wavelength (longer wavelength colors like red and orange become less visible due to absorption in the water). Jelly Rope has incredible light reflection properties resulting in rich, iridescent colors that seem to glow, especially when tied over a reflective underbody. The chartreuse Jelly Rope body helps the fly stick out in stained flows.

Daddy Kills Fish

Daddy Kills Fish

 

Until your daddy learns that it’s not ‘fun’ to kill, keep your doggies and kitties away from him. He’s so hooked on killing defenseless animals that they could be next!

Well, for starters we have to get Daddy into Catch & Release and to stop incessantly watching those “Greatest Kill Shots, Volume 4, Colorado Elk”

Just  a little humor….or is it? A unique group all rolled into one: vegan nazi’s, green, anti-fishing, anti-hunting, anti-pet ownership and of course anti Weber BBQ’s!!
