Fly Tying & Fishing: Tag Ends of This & That

Double Bead Peacock Herl Nymph: A size 10 to 14 hook. You could use the swimming nymph hook or lightly bend the shank on a 3-4xl hook. Glass or metallic beads can be used and the colors could be varied. Metallic will aid in descent. The green looks nice here. The peacock herl is always an awesome material to use. The tail is more of a tag than a longer wispy tail.

Carp Fly Fishing Presentation (not sure if this piece is attributable to the university or Fly Fish Addiction site that published but did not attribute or if one in the same source. You will find some interesting suggestions).

No Retrieve: “Gary LaFontaine, in his book, Fly Fishing the Mountain Lakes, states that “a slow retrieve outfished a quick retrieve 4 to 1 and no retrieve outfished a slow retrieve four to one….I’m a specialist at not moving a fly—nymph, dry, wet, or streamer—on lakes.” (ohhh, patience, patience. Unless fishing a streamer pattern, we all tend to fish too fast. If your fly sinks too quickly and hangs up, then perhaps the fly is too heavy or the type of line is taking it down too quickly in shallow water…10′ or less).
