Re: "Bucket List" flies
Next on my list is a fly I've considered for a long time...."the Panama". I'm rounding up the materials and will give it a post when I put it together.
Vague history to this fly. Popularized in France but some say it's an "American" creation. I know it's a fish getter by the looks of it but I never got around to putting one on the water. The fly has been tempting my vise for 40 years and I think it's about time I put one together.
It's a slightly complicated dry fly and will be a few new techniques for me to try out.
