Fly Tying and the IDK Pattern(s)

Where do yours’ go? I have plastic bins of IDK patterns.  I Don’t Know what they were suppose to be. Often I tied with improvisation, trying to not so much match anything as create something interesting, and to me enticing to the trout. Not a good process. Better to match something then improvise and then keep it in the ballpark of reality. Yet, hundreds of flies fill plastic bins. Flies that rarely saw water, immediately rejected at the vise or removed from a box after dozens of mental rejections on the water. Sometimes, I find a few like these that actually seem OK rather than IDK……….

Midge Mania

Some would say cursed (my kids) by the afflictions of always on time (actually early) and Semper Paratus…I am often arriving early to meetings and killing time sitting in the rig or as I have come to do…wandering a bookstore. Recently, I was killing time in Medford, Oregon at a Barnes & Noble and came across a book that begged the question ‘how many variations of a chironomid/midge can there possibly be to warrant a sizeable book?’ Apparently many. Sorry for the cell phone blur…but you get the idea…

The book has a nice layout and covers every conceivable variation of chironomid, midge, buzzer, gnat…. you are bound to find something new to experiment with…I did. I did not spring, but given the detail and thoroughness of the book, it is worth the price (I won’t quote, given the various resources out there to acquire books in the store or online).

Jay Moor + Exclamatory Words and Phrases

There are many notable photographers that seem to combine the camera and the environs of the rod. An always noteworthy one is Jay Moor. As you peruse his images you will indeed utter your ingrained selection of words that show awe, respect and appreciation. I think we all agree this is the medium…the visual…that transports the work bound, house bound, duty bound to places they have never been or not been to in too long a time.
