Default skwalas

heres a skwala stone dry I've been working on. Low riding, bullet head. I think I'll toss it around this weekend.

Very nice work, congrats! That should fish really well, let us know how you do.

I saw a pattern on the nymph swap that Joe (aka stenacron) tied up that also looks like an awesome skwalas pattern, scroll down on this link to see his pattern.

That's a good one! The trout around here love the skwala stoneflies but I have about one month till it's "go time." Where are you that you can fish skwalas in February?

Thanks guys. I'll check out that nymph for sure. I'd be interested in fly swaps in the future as well.

Dean, I'm on the eastern flank of the Sierra, Reno/Tahoe area. We've had a crazy mild winter. We desperately need some more snow pack. I think this is our fourth bad snow pack in a row.....praying for a miracle March! This summer could be sketchy.......But, in the meantime, the spring bugs are already ahead of schedule. Mild temps have fish pretty active, so maybe they'll be coaxed up for a big meal, even if they're not quite out yet.
