Perdigons were first developed by the Spanish competitive fly-fishing team but were really popularized by the French. These simple nymphs epitomize what I look for in good fly design. They’re simple, they sink like rocks due to their inherent weight and slim design, and when you put in a bit of effort, they can even be pretty. - from a Charlie Craven blog post. As new as euro nymphing...Thanks, I recognize the RS2 now that you posted but never have seen the Perdigon before; is that a new pattern?
A few years back, I was on my way to Florida to meet the family for Disney World. I decided to drive down to see some states that I had not been too before. I made sure to drive through and hike some different places in TN-NC-SC-GA. I saw wonderful waterfalls and beautiful mountains and streams. I had done my scouting on the computer and fly fished a few different places. One of those places was Chattooga River area and side streams. I can remember hiking and fishing the Ellicott Rock area. Thank you for the memory and nice fish. Take CareHiked up to Ellicott Rock on the Chattooga, which is the corner where SC, NC, and Georgia meet. Covered about 8 miles today and was able to get into some nice wild trout, plus a bunch of chubs and other river fish. Tried a few of the feeder streams, no fish but a few nice pics.
