Tested this out yesterday and boy did it get a lot of attention. Caught the most fish on this fly. Caught smallmouth bass and bluegill on this fly. I will try this pattern on trout also when I get the chance.

Rtf, That looks like a real nice fly. The ant does as well. The "newbie" in your signature will have to be dropped if you keep this up. ;)

I agree - with a creative tying standard like this, the newbie just don't cut it anymore.

Nice job RT - keep it up.

My first impression ofg the attention getter was - wow, elk hair caddis on steroids :D

The flash in the wing would make this an interesting fly to try on Mr Trout one dark evening when they're hitting sedge ;)

Thank you fellow fly fisherman. Believe it or not last night I caught a 4" Largemouth bass on this fly. I think the fly weighed more then him :chuckle:

As far as being a newbie, I have only been into the flyfishing scene for little over a whole month. Never touched a fly rod or fly until then. As soon as I can start catching trout on my own flies, then I think we can change the newbie sig .
