I made the clown phallus two years ago.

It sat in my box unused for a long time. I fished a ditch of an ATW in central PA for the opener, and saw a few quill gordons hatch, but that's it.

Naturally, it was time to tie it on.

It was a hit. I may still have it. It's going on at dawn day one if I still live in the humidor.

If not, I'll throw it at dawn on the madison.

Camera being flaky, and patience low. This is what I get for using an unstable ROM. I know, I know. Of all people to say that to...

Anyway.

Tail: Chartreuse marabou, red krystal flash, and flashabou
Body: blue crystal braid
Colar: pink marabou
Head: chartreuse estaz

Let me try to get the camera working. Or go to bed. One or the other.

Lead and the ability to properly floss is crucial.

Someone needed to throw it in there right?

Thanks for the info guys. I HOPEFULLY will have time to sit at my bench and turn out a few dozen flies in the next few weeks. With a 1 year old and another on the way and a sick wife on top of a full work schedule, needless to say I haven't had much time to tie let alone fish. This trip on October and my vaca in a few weeks might be some of the only fishing I get done in the next few months.

Not true
That may have been the way you did it, but not everyone did it that way.
My crew sight fished with floating lines, long leaders and early versions of sucker spawn. And we did really well in New York, PA, OH and MI.
Watch the fly. Watch the fish. Watch the fish eat the fly. SET THE HOOK

ryguyfi, you're heading up in October? Make sure you have a flak jacket and helmet! lol. The crowds can be pretty bad in October. You'll definitely see the mono/flyreel/sponge guys, up there. lol.

DSR. Pay the money. Embrace the socioeconomic segregation. Eat the caviar.

Seriously. $45 for sanity. $45 for INsanity. I pay it every time.

I saw one crew of sponge chucking snaggers down there. We called the river keeper and their asses got hauled out.

In a sense. Used to be a recording engineer in Nashville.

Isn't that a form of lifting now a days ?? we tosed flies with split shot and swung flies, just used mono or fly line depending on conditions.never saw the fish just felt the hit..

We used no weight. Back then, the Erie tribs in New York had "snagging streams" and non snagging streams.
We fished the non snagging streams and were not allowed to weight the line.
We soaked the flies really good and then tried to hit the downstream side of a redd. The fish below (rainbow/steelhead or brown/laker) would usually swim over and eat the fly. It is just like dry fly fishing except under water.
We could do that back then because the non snagging streams were pretty much empty.
When we saw some salmon, we swung flies on sink tip lines (made our own) with 2ft leaders. They more often than not slammed what ever was in front of their faces.

We took those tactics to Erie, PA and over to the OH tribs. Few people fished Erie and almost nobody fished OH. There was plenty of room to have a pool to yourself to sight fish.
