  1. Default A Couple That Have Been Productive This Winter

    Here are a couple patterns that have worked well on my local tailwaters this winter.
    The first is a midge I call Jumpin Black Flash Size 22



    This second is BWO that has been especially deadly in 11 Mile Canyon this winter. Size 20

    Yat, most exceptional. What is the material for the thorax on that first fly? Looks like Estaz, but for a size 22 that doesn't jive.

    Thanks,

    Kelly.

    Great looking flies Yat..Is that a glass bead on the midge?

    Yes. Mercury glass bead. The body is a single piece of black Krystal flash wrapped flat up to the bead, with a thin coat of UV Knot sense covering, then the peacock herl.
    Super simple but deadly. I've had hits on that fly as soon as it hits the water, before it even sinks.

    Kelly as much as the fly fishing itch is bugging you, its better to follow the doc's advice on the ankle. We don't want you laid up when the warm wx returns!
