Low.

I'd like to direct this line of discussion back to the matter at hand.

Uhm. I've made some patterns using glass beads over a green thread body, but not been very happy, and just wrapping clear plastic tubing-ish-stuff (beading cord) over green dubbing, too. That works well, actually. The beads takes too long, but the cord is way quick and sinks gooder.

Are you just picking out some fibers or are you wrapping some sparse material on the thread?

This the same as the butterworm you did, too? Furled thread there, then brushed out?

You do realize how much of an ass you sound like? Seriously your going to try to tell me that anything we tie will work and they are just dumb fish? Jerry (you see I called you by the name that you don't mind not the one you really hate, just shows I am not that mad) Anyways, you talk all high and might about all the fancy flies and only the best of stuff. You go out spend tons of money on fancy equipment and materials, and then you try to tell me, that they are just stupid fish and whatever you tie will work? Maybe thats why you don't catch more fish? Sure, your right, they are dumb fish, but they are still smart enough and sometimes picky not to eat anything that just floats by. Now shut your hole and stop being a D-wad. O, and if you are so concerned about to many steps and how you don't need to make anything fancy, stop tying royal M F wulffs.

By the way, before I tied the one I posted about, I tied one of those shark ones earlier today.


Ok, done venting, still like ya creeper, but sometimes you just have to shush.

Wait one more thing, if you wanted to criticize the tie, I am fine with that, but you had to go all into your dumb TL;DR novel, thats what annoyed me the most.


tl;dr.



O no you didn't!!!!

Jdaddy, thats what I was going for. Jack delete my profile please

Seriously though, I figured I would just post a pattern that seemed to be pretty killer for me. I mean as fly tiers and fisherman, we are all after that legendary pattern, the Holy Grail, that just annihilates fish right?

I agree, it looks like a caddis/mayfly hybrid, but hey, it worked right.

I prefer a simpler wire ribbed- fur dubbed body, ostrich head and a bead.

I also echo what fishidiot wrote: many people oversize the bead. I tend to use the smallest bead possible and tie the body of equal thickness. Not the triangular-tapered body found in the orvis fly tying manual, but then again, that style also catches fish

I tried the larva-lace, stretch tube, V-rib style larvae before. They didn't work any better for me than the dubbed body version- and the dubbed body is easier to work with.

I think the bigger bead help in another way besides weight....

The flat-bodied clinger mayfly species have a wider head, so the bigger bead could resemble this, as far as profile.

That said, I use a smaller bead than most books and charts suggest.

It was whiney, I made it through the first couple sentences and decided you just weren't able to accept the sublime wisdom and were revolting against the gift of knowledge.

You mean the Royal Coachman, and its evolutionary paradigm shift into the Royal Wulff?

1878. You're 133 years too late.

Anyways, crankster, I think I misread what you were doing. I thought you wanted other people's "killer caddis larva," which brings me back around to fish just putting things in their mouths. Also, tie them in cream. I don't remember why, but there's some local caddis that's actually got cream larva, not green.

Finally, sparkle caddis, and the rest of the Lafontaine patterns. Works like gangbusters when caddis are coming off.

The...."O no you didn't!?" reference was suppose to be read in an African American Lady's voice, not meaning "I do not believe you did not read it". Sorry should have been more specific.
