No Flash. No Marabou. No Trailer Hooks....

For the first time in 6 months, I sat down at the vice and realized it was time to turn the page.

Everything has it's place, and of course, time.  I often wonder if I had steelhead around 12 months a year, would I appreciate it as much as I do know when the five month gap takes our trips away from spey rods and more to lakes, and local rivers.

Carp anyone?

For a lot of that time, I'll probably be throwing this bug.  Soon enough, it will be time to break out the traditional hooks and get back in the steelhead mode.

Until then, it's time to lob the turd.


  1. Swinging this bug yesterday did the trick, and caught 3 or 4 times as many fish as any other pattern last year.

  2. that's the best stone nymph out there
