Has anyone won the opportunity to name my fly yet by catching the first fish with it?

Mine arrived a bit late and it bounces off the ice. Need a little tungsten or perhaps some patience on my part.

Trouter I am in the same box with about 6' of frozen water on top of the river but there are some pet stores around with big fish. Hmm maybe I should sneak in at night and have a fishing session.

Did you say 6 feet of ice? If so, I will stop whining now.

Yeah but that is a pretty thin ice layer this winter. We normally can drive on the ice.

The fly shall be dubbed "mega chub slayer"

Had 2 chubs right around 9 to 10 inches nail it. Had a third fish on, decent rainbow, pop the tippet about 10 feet from the bank.

Oh yeah, and Eunans fly got 3 hits that I just couldn't get to stick. Not sure what the deal was but I've definitely began to see the effectiveness of these streamer styles!

I only kid....

Actually connected with 6 decent rainbows. The chub part was true, though... 2 of them took it too.

I'll think on a cool name for it.
