    Default The Black Martinez Pattern

    Here is a pattern that Jimmie sent me with some materials to tie it with, it is called a Black Martinez and it is real popular with some of the fly fishers in the Sierra's. It is fished dead drift, let rise, no retrieve.

    Thanks Chris! I think it is also a killer pattern, that is the first one I have tied. I'm going to tie up a few and give them a try on the local streams and see how they do in the Rockies.

    Thanks Jimmie for sharing such a great looking fly pattern!

    Soft hackle nymphs like that are very effective patterns; at least for the fish that we have up here in the Poconos.

    I like the density of the partridge collar, just enough to give overall coverage, depending on how the fly lies in the water, but not so much that the leg/antennae imitation is lost.

    You're apt to get the majority of your strikes when you're at the end of your drift, pause the rod and let the fly drift up against the current; since you're imitating a rising pupae at that point.

    We had a guy up here named Jim Leisenring who used that technique all the time and was locally renowned for his routine ability to out-fish almost anyone else. The technique that you describe to activate the fly and make it attractive to the fish is known to us as the "Leisenring lift".

    Great looking fly. The Leisenring Lift has become well known everywhere I believe. I learned it under that name many years back.
    Let us know how you make out!
    Each smallest act of kindness - even just words of hope when they are needed, the remembrance of a birthday, a compliment that engenders a smile - reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it's passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away.

    That'll work for sure, though I'd likely sub peacock herl for the chenille thorax.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.
