Re: Fishing wets over stocked trout - wingless 2:1

The bonus of course is that fishing wets is so much more fun than staring at an indicator.

Anyone have a good source for Kamasan hooks

Kamasan hooks have always performed well for my wingless and winged wets. Does anyone have a reliable source with good selection?

Fishing wets over stocked trout - wingless 2:1

Enjoying soft hackles and winged wets fished over stocked trout, I've noticed that wingless wets outfish the winged ones about 2:1. Still, I love catching trout on a Silver Invicta or Woodcock and Hare's ear. I'm experimenting with different positions in the cast to see if that makes s difference.

Re: Grouse and Claret

That's a great looking fly. I'm trying that on a trout soon.

Re: English Grouse & Woodcock Hackles

Beautiful. Woodcock is a favorite of mine too. I don't know enough about the bird to know if supply is dwindling or stable.

Re: Black caddis

Very nice! Love the proportions and the color/textural effects. This looks very fishy and worthy of pattern theft!

Re: Starling & Red Soft Hackle

Sparse starling hackles are a joy to see and a blast to fish. Well done.

Re: Beaver Bling

Great fly. I like how the black list of the furnace delineates a "thorax". Well done.
