Larry and Cicvara thanks, the hook was suposed to be #13 and was ordered to do some caddis with but there huge at a guess somewhere between 1/0 and #2 but with 3x short shank (only guessing) they should give an awesome hook up tho

Justin thanks, you swing it across the water the same as any other streamer or wet cast across and down if the water is still its slowly pulled back in if you feel anything give a good pull as larger fish it can be hard to set the hook well (heavy tippet 10-15lb at least)

Great looking fly. heavier and bigger gear that I usually fish for trout with. As they say...big lures catch big fish. I don't know why I fish with #8 or smaller...the spinner guys are casting a landing fish on two to three inch meps lures. Hmmmm...

Even my buggers have been smallish...I think I've got some tying to do

Thanks JJ

I like the pattern! Something I have learned about nighttime flies is they should displace water when they are retrieved. The more the better (within reason)
__________________
Each smallest act of kindness - even just words of hope when they are needed, the remembrance of a birthday, a compliment that engenders a smile - reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it's passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away.

Hi Chris that is one nice fly....I really like it....

I Have to agree with Kerry though ...They must displace water when they are retrieved. They do like the signals.....Like the Old Jitterbug or the old Hula Poppers they send out those signals
