Olive caddisfly

While gone for the Christmas holiday week in the land of snow and ice not far from the shores of Gitchee Gumee... dock.jpg I kept looking at one of my last season bug viles I left up north.

Re: Is This............Pearsall's 6b (Sherry Spinner)?

Being a little on the "non-traditionalist" side of things.. I lean toward sparse bodies on nymphs and have had more success with spider style soft hackles than with the more heavily bodied flymphs. Rosbourough's fuzzy nymphs have a following and I'm sure they work in some waters. I wonder if their ...
