Check out this bad ass prototype of a fall caddis (stick worm)...I plan to whack them on the Black River with this! Alot of times over there I use a simple stupid brown chenille fly...but as we hammer them over there and the fish get "jaded" and wise:) I am always trying to show them something different....this fly is tied on a size 4 3X long hook...it is HEAVY...I made the dubbing brush using copper wire...this bad bug with get in their faces...I will short line "high stick it" instead of using an indicator...
As some of you know I nymph fish ALOT. It is very effective and almost always produces action. My go to fly or top dropper fly is normally a hide a bead nymph. The flavors vary from a dark hares ear, a hendrickson, a march brown or a wd40 version....this one pictured is a hendrickson. Hendrickson Nymph Recipe: Tail: woodduck Body/Thorax: a blend of Muskrat with a touch of claret dyed dub Wing case: Canadian Goose Hook / bead: Size 10 w 5/32 bead or size 12 w 1/8 bead Step 1: bead hook, tie on thread, position and secure bead in thorax area
