Fly Tying & Fishing Your “Hmmm’s?”

Fly Tying, for me, often results in dozens of finished flies that just don’t quite come together as planned. Experiments (most often) off the beaten tying patterns path or just distractions and lack of focus have resulted in flies that maybe get tucked into a fly box (if lucky) or into a lumping of such uninspiring patterns into a sandwich bag, lidded box or such, and forgotten.

Maybe some of those Hmmm’s (you look at them in the vise or fly box and say a quizzical or exasperated ‘Hmmm?’) deserve an experiment on the water? Such is the below pictured pattern. A little ’emerger’ pattern that is a sloppy tie, but isn’t it worth a try? Frankly, if no one ever saw what we tied or we didn’t take pictures and display them for scrutiny, who would know their visual worth beyond you and the fish?

I have plenty more where this came from!
