In 1978 I lumped everything I read about and everything I knew would work for a Streamer and the best qualities of the flies I caught fish with and came up with this fly. The very first cast snagged a fish. I call it the "Family Hole Special". The fly has two loops of mono to tame the material from fouling. The pic of the fly is in a bowl underwater. The fly can be tied in many different ways.

Next up a mickey finn.
I think I'll do some more of these for the fall. Need some red bucktail though. Might be time to raid dad's supplies next time he's distracted with the grandkids.
I can't afford all this stuff.

Pink and shades close to pink, like cerise, have caught me a lot of fish. They did really good in dirty water. Still throw pink when I go fishing.

Fooling around with a variation on Craven's Mysis Shrimp pattern tonight.

Although the beadchain eyes are larger than I had hoped, there is something appealing to me about them. Maybe an exaggerated "trigger" will be just what the doctor ordered... I'll let the fish decide of course.
