Yea I know!

I feel these are a lot easier then the Sharks pattern because there is no twisting of antron and dubbing.

Becker,

Can you tie that in all red, with red bead also. A few guys in chester county are slamming them on my all red killer. Been getting pictures sent of the DHALO and fly project stockies left and right. Not sure if there are blood worms out there or what but the all red is working.

I never go to try the all red version yet. He said 2 suckers ate them as well. Weird. I typically only get rainbows on that pattern. Just got apicture of really nice brown on it as well.

fresh stocked fish will hit just about anything. I would not get too excited.

I only got excited because the guy who was fishing with the other guy just fished the section above the one with the all red fly and didn't have a hit and the guy with the all red fly caugth a ton. The other guy came back down and still didn't get a hit drifting right along side him.

"red thread" flies like a red Zebra midge are commonly used, and they do catch fish. There is a larva that they immitate, look it up on the web. Tie them very thin, on caddis hooks. Sometimes I use thread (ribbed, then coated with head cement). I also use red Spanflex - great material to tie with, and durable as it has fibers running through it lengthwise.

BTW, the red larva is a midge larva and I believe the red color is due to hemaglobin. They are present in numbers in one of the streams I fish regularly.

These guys also have a fair amount of red-ish orange in the body and a red head:
