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.

CDC bead head pattern…

cdc-beadhead-nymph-swittersb

This pattern is tied on a straight shanked hook, size 12 here. The trailing material is mylar tinsel for movement and flash in the upper strata. The body is a wound dubbing brush, but of course you could dub a similar body, in olive. The wing is a couple of stacked CDC feathers.  This pattern has done very well on rivers and lakes as a diving/emerging caddis imitation. This would be an equally good pattern without the bead and fished below the surface or in the film.

Fly tying: deer hair collar…

A buoyant material added on a caddis pattern. Spun in a dubbing loop and wrapped as a collar/thorax. It is fairly durable and impressionistic of wing/legs.

Almost, but not quite…

Always fussing about with settings, in the off chance I might get a nice shot of a hummer flying/fluttering about the feeder…I need to enroll in Cindy’s class on ‘How to Photograph Hummers” ūüėɬ† ¬†¬†https://cindyknoke.com¬†

This was the best chance I had for the day…was preparing to lift off.

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.
