Recollections…

Nostalgia is a pleasant diversion, but don’t let it stop you from creating new memories. This time of year it is easy to start hunkering down by the fire.

the lakes beckon…

A stillwater (lake) fly box filled & temporarily organized 😄 with mostly subsurface fly patterns. Of course, I have quite a few more fly boxes filled with surface patterns, emerger patterns etc. etc. Good luck and tight lines to all of you that wet a line now and then.

This & that…

I seem to flit about, I imagine you’ve noticed, between the wild lands and the garden this time of year. The flowers are emerging in all their splendor while the rivers and lakes beckon. I go through this in the Fall when the gardening is winding down and the fly fishing is good. So, I will be posting flowers and nature’s habitat along the way.

‘Vintage’ Pattern: Carey Special

Carey Special-Fly Pattern-SwittersB

Another ‘vintage’ stillwater (lake) fly pattern…the Carey Special. Peacock Herl body w/ Pheasant Rump feather fibers for tail and same for a wrapped wing material. This is the classic look. The pattern lends itself to substitutions of body material/color and the wing material can be substituted as long as feather fibers extend at least the length of the abdomen. I don’t weight this pattern with a BH or underbody wrap. Size 10, 2xl. I fish this with an Intermediate sink line either hand retrieved or with the lazier troll along presentation.
