Actually the photo is just fine, I can copy it from that, or do you have a patent pending.

Spock,

Not everyone who visits the fly tying sections of the forum are fly tyers, not have all the fly tyers who visit the fly tying sections experienced tyers who can glean a pattern from a picture of a fly. That is why it is respectfully requested of you or anyone else who posts a fly to please provide the pattern recipe or dressing of the fly as well. This way those who don't tie or those who have not been tying for years can have the fly tied by someone else or work on it themselves.

Thanks for the pattern. Now, if you could turn off your CapsLock, everything would be peachy-keen. All CAPS is considered to be yelling on the Internet.

Thumbs up

Thanks for the recipe.


Do you cut the flashabou before putting it in the dubbing spinner? I like the effect.

Chromer,

You should be able to find Flashabou Dubbing, just look around a few shops in a 60 miles radius of where you live. The Flashabou Dubbing is a very fine Flashabou cut to dubbed fiber length to make it easy to use in a dubbing loop. If you can't find it locally, you can make your own by cutting Flashabou into 1/2" lengths and putting it into a zip-lock bag so it doesn't end up fly all over your tying area. However, it is much easier to simply find some of the Flashabou Dubbing.

you also can use woolhead dubbing in white for a less flashy fly when the water clears up

"Cattaraugus" means "foul-smelling river bank." This name is a result of the natural gas that oozes from the river mud.

I googled that info. Nice looking pattern, but I'll bet it would kick butt in the salt too. Anyone know what saltwater will do to Zonker and other fur. Just seems like it would have more action than artificial materials.
