Intentional bad hair day at the vise yesterday :o
Bit of a bitsa to tempt a wee troot. Gary Lafontaine sparkle emerger butt hangin off an Al Troth caddis wing with a paraloop hackle and a Jinglerish soft hackle at the nose :?
Butt looks pretty juicy when wet... ;)

I've sat here for a solid ten minutes studying the photos in complete admiration. I'm gobsmacked mate! Brilliant combination and beautifully executed.

It's great to see you back at the vice (and camera) again. ;)

Are you preparing for a fishing trip?

Thanks Ray, good to hear from u as always mate :)
I haven't been tying much lately, just the occasional fly of an evening atm. I'm glad you like the fly, a bit of a bitsa but I think it should fish well. My idea was to tie something when the trout are feeding on potatoes aka caddis. If they're tough on adult imitations I wanted to give em something that's a bit of a hybrid between a dry and a wet. The fly rides well in the water adding desiccant to the soft hackle, hackle and wing only. Just theories at this point but time will tell.
No fishing at the moment either, I've nearly finished our renovation but sadly it's nearly finished me :lol:
Both my arms and my casting shoulder are in a bad way so I'm going to have to adjust my expectations. It'll be short casts on short light rods on small streams if I can. Better than not getting out there. I hope u've been well mate...

Here's another tie I recently did, simple little soft hackle emerger. Fish it wet, just under the film or in the film using desiccant on the hackle/thorax. Nothing special just a fun quick and simple tie ;)

Good stuff as usual, Karsten. That caddis is brilliant in concept, but -- alas -- so technically difficult that few will be able to replicate it. You will just have to tie a dozen for each of us ... ;) .
In ancient times, cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.
