    I think it's a ant (giant ant)

    I've been working on restocking my stillwater box for the spring. Blood midge is a big spring hatch at Lake Davis here in Northern California, one of my favorite trout lakes. Here are some blood midge patterns I tied over the hols; these are mostly in size 14 and 16, and I tied some of these with red pheasant tail, a material I haven't used for these patterns in the past, but I like the look. I also added some emergers, a pattern I haven't used much in the past. The technique I've had the most success with is subsurface, either floating line with strike indicator and long leader (especially with a little chop on the water), or clear intermediate line hand-twist retrieved verrry slowly. Can't wait for spring!

    Poor quality materials and tools are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.

    With some imagination looks like a Trichoptera (hairwings) huh ? from a little distance anyway.

    Up closer looks like a caddis fly pattern.........
