Jack,

Would you fish a shrimp pattern in the salt?

If the Bighorn ever makes your bucket list, do yourself a favor and pass on it. Scud/sjw combo seemed to be the key to the nonstop fish catching. Then again, the bottom was crawling with scuds and tiny red worms.

Gahh!!! You're killin' me Dave! Those are the first fly I ever caught a significant number of trout on and thanks to my tying laziness, led the way to "Maurice's Miracle", Which is one of my go-to flies. As far as popular flies that I don't get, put me down for most dries and all midges.

Try hanging one near the top of the water column in a deep, clear native stream. Nothing like bringing a jumper up from the deep.

It's just a guess, but probably something similar to the fly that you barked something along the lines of "WTF IS THAT???" at the pine creek jam.

I'm a believer. It works.

What Jay said. It's nothing more than brown saddle hackle with a lemon wood duck tuft for a tail on streamer hook. I thought you knew I named it after you. LOL. Shakey calls it "that Maurice fly" I believe.

Not a big fan of clousers, green weenies, or prince nymphs

Cool thread. Man, lots of people hatin' on the prince nymph. I loves me a BH prince...now the zug bug, on the the other hand...seems like a waste of my Alexandra peacock sword to me...

Great post Ernie! I'd have to agree with JayL's notion on the traditional winged Wets. Soft Hackles are a perfect substitute and definately easier to tie.

The Prince has a place in my box, but my success with it is less than I'd prefer. It doesn't quite live up to the hype for me, but I know lots of guys love that fly. Pheasant Tails on the other hand are very consistent for me, and I love to tie them.

Nah, I had a good 15 minutes on it at this year's jam and Shakey asked me what I was using. Seriously, dude, you were right there. It was right after hot dogs on Spring. I hit 3 in about 15 minutes after a whole day of two fish. I thought you were standing with us. I could have been wrong.

I like them...they just take three times as long to tie than any other caddis pattern. The work, they float, they're durable, they're overkill...
