Default Re: Your Fly Of The Week;

Here's mine for the week ending 7/17/2010, started using it on Sunday the 11th and finished today. The fly put 21 fish in the larder for the long winter and caught and released three times that many. There were also many long distance releases because when the fish are present in large numbers I tend to try to rush landing them. The quicker you land them the more you can hook. If you plan to release then a really quick fight is the ticket. I never had the fly break off (15lb leader on 8 lb fish) and it is resting in my box.

A very good Skykomish Sunrise;

Darn it, Ard! I have been fishing with smaller flies (16-20) lately with my single handers. I have not touched the two handers in awhile. Now you are forcing me to make it so. Gosh. You are making life so hard for me.

Truth be told, I have the itch to fish the two handers, so I'll figure out a fly of the week. Actually, I have some patterns that I have been goofing around on my vise that I want to try out.

That is an awesome idea Ard. I'll be watching just to see what you two hand guys use.
Would be fun to have a fly of the week thread for us one handers and tyers too. It would keep the ideas and new ties flowing.

Default Two Weeks Ago;

Eleven days ago I tied this fly, a Santiam Spectrum to my leader to fish in the Kenai River. By the time it was re-photographed it had caught many Dolly Varden Char and a whole bunch of sockeye salmon. I kept on fishing it wherever I was fishing until it started to unravel, then I switched to the Skykomish. It held up well but I will be using a copy next time I tie one on.

Good stuff and good Idea Ard. I'm headed up your way Thursday for a couple weeks and plan on playing with the two hander hopefully I'll have a fly to show at the end of it all.

Ard: Very good idea about posting a two hander fly of the week!
Good to see the fishing is finally picking up for you! That Santiam Spectrum is a really nice looking fly, one of my favorites when I fished in AK was the Skykomish Sunrise so I know it will catch a ton of fish for you.
