Re: BWO Splymph

Steve - When is your trout spey book coming out? I am definitely interested in buying a copy, when it gets published. Ray, wish I could answer that one. Would like to get it out before somebody else beats me to the first book on the subject. Right now trout spey is the fastest growing branch of our...

When it appears to be coming under control it needs to become complicated again

Nah. Just more choices. No need to take on more than piques your interest.

Re: BWO Splymph

ah Steve you hit my interest with your last post. I'll look forward to the new book about trout spey. On that subject, I fish a lot with a 10'6" 3wt nymphing rod when I'm swinging wets. Quite often I'll use a snap T or single spey cast with a standard fly line, 3or4wt forward, floating line. With t...

Re: BWO Splymph

Thanks for the kind words guys. Hope everybody is able to get out & wet a line this spring, while staying well. WDFW closed all fishing in the state of Washington due to the virus, so doing more tying than usual while working on edits to a book about trout spey. Tying is always fun. Editing can be f...

BWO Splymph

bwo flymph 003 (800x714).jpg Having attributes of both a spider & a flymph, I suppose this one might fall into the category Bill Shuck defined as a 'splymph'. This one represents a dun, & I sometimes fish it dry. We have larger BWO's in spring, about #17, & I tie these in #16-#18 on #16 hooks. Hook...

Re: Derbyshire Blue Dun (second attempt)

Great tutorial & awesome tie, Ray.

Bait.

I like this kind of written tutorial with notes. More artful & satisfying than a video. You are good at it.

Re: Partridge & Yellow

Great freestone fly, Carl. Simulates a lot of small & medium stonefly species. It's Hidy's pattern, I'm not sure what he used it for. But I agree, stonefly would be appropriate. I was also thinking Mahogany Dun. Getting ready to tie some Mahogany Duns (Great Red Spinner) (Dodsii) for the upcoming s...
