Adrian ....argh too late for this week-end!

Came up to Burlington this morning, loaded up for the salt with no F/W gear.

Last season everything just stayed in the back of the car the whole summer - fresh, salt whatever. This year I decided to be a bit more "organized".

I'll bring some along next time.

Nice ties. Bring some of those to the cape...our pond has been lit up with trout.

Yup, same stuff. It's sold as a packaging material. I got a sackful from a company (I think it was XDR something or other ???). Probably enough for a thousand lifetimes for about 12 bucks

It looks great.

damsel suspender

I love to fish surafce flies in any environment. On my local pond and many warmwater areas I see a lot of damsel flies and back in the 'old country' the nymphs werer a popular pattern for still water trout. I would expect them to be consumed in large quantities and wouldn't hesitate to throw one to a big Carp - just as soon as I get the chance.

This one had done very well for me so far. Here's the pattern:

Hook: Orvis curved nymph hook size 8 (code 1510)
Tail: Olive dyed rabbit fur
Body: Olive dubbing
Rib: Oval gold tinsel
Suspender: Small polystyrene ball encased in nylon mesh stocking. Finished off with a coat of loon hardbody to help endurance.
Hackle: Rootbeer, wound parachute style.

This is a real simple pattern to tie and very easy to cast with lighter lines (4-5wt).
