I spend a little time checking out fly tying videos, and there is a vast variety of good and bad flies out there. This one, found on the Daily Fly Paper Blog, fired up my imagination. It's tied for turbulent early season rivers, but man, it's fat and juicy--just what the trout at my lake really like. This, with a few alterations, may be the fly to wake them up this Spring. At least I'm excited about giving it the chance.
It's good to be excited in late January when the rivers are high.
