Old Trusty Goes to Town

    Keep up the fish success stories, I mean, few are not. My mouth waters over your home H20.


    • Its been good to me this spring as far as the commons are concerned. It all depends on the Missouri River staying low which keeps the upper creek sight-fishable. Last year the river went up and never came down, I think this year may be a little different.

    Hmm …. too bad the camera auto-focused on the vegetation.

    Machete or Woodman’s Pal should fix that.

    Nice simple fly. That last fish looks like a real beast.

    Those last TWO look pretty big! Good-lookin’ fly.
    Are you fishing these most often over mud or rock?

    I must ask, that looks like a chenille rather than dubbing. If so, or if dubbed, it’s a neat texture and color.


    • No its yarn dubbing and squirrel tail in a dubbing loop. it could be tied with any conventional dubbing mix or even chenille but I shy away from chenille because I think dubbing looks better.

    Can you tell me a link to buy this dubbing?
