A classic bead head nymph…

Time flies (no pun intended) and what was innovative (like a bead head) in the early 80’s is now a classic, basic fixture in fly tying of nymph patterns. Still a great, basic nymph pattern! The tinsel rib is seen less today, but the glint of segmentation is still an eye catcher. I still enjoying taking these macro shots of flies I’ve tied and use.

Fly Pattern: impressionistic…

bead head caddis pattern-nymph-swittersb_001

On of my favorite flies to tie/fish. Tied on a curved shank or straight shank it is a busy, buggy fly. The hackle is starling, tail deer hair, abdomen/thorax hare’s ear with copper rib. A size 14 hook here.

past times…

Strive as one may, one’s past times (hobbies/passions) can be relegated to the bin of past times. Life’s struggles, relentless at times, change the mind’s focus and when the pressures let up, not surprisingly those old hobbies seem distant. I have vowed to make every effort, through the Winter doldrums, to prepare for fly fishing, fly tying, photographing the garden, just plain getting out to reconnect. Inertia sets in and the mind seems to retreat to a lazy state.

Little Black Nymph…

Not too small, a size 14 here, trout pattern when basic black works subsurface. If you aren’t chasing Salmon or Winter Steelhead then it’s time to tie.
