little moth…

on the backdoor window measured less than an inch wide. It cooperated while I putzed about with the macro against the glass.

Dusting off the vise…

Spring is near. The Winter doldrums worse than usual. Tying some flies might rekindle the anticipation.

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.

This chunky spider was once upon a time dangling right above my front door…I brought it in and placed in on a paper towel and snapped away. I released it into/onto a safe environ.
