Wet Fly (What Would a Production Tier Do With the Flu?)

The Snowshoe Rabbit wing is there but lost in the barbules of the CDC. I close up of the CDC shows just how amazingly barbed it is…wow! Went with a copper ribbing here and a touch of dubbing and no hen hackle. Again simple is the task with lively movement in the water. These are forgiving patterns for the ‘impressionistic’ amongst you. I envision this as a caddis imitation in this size…smaller it would be a fine midge emerger too. Thank goodness I don’t do this (or photography) for a living.

Wet Fly (One Down and I Think I’ll Lie Down)

Intended to tie for relaxation this afternoon. A flu of sorts is knocking me down. Didn’t get far with the tying of a simple wet fly. The materials are simple and only the tan CDC feather is not shown. The two ply yarn is a simple, thin yarn found at a yarn store in many colors. The wire was dark olive and perhaps a lighter olive was in order to create a better segmentation along the abdomen. Maybe later…right now I am practicing mind control.
