Made famous by Ed Hewitt, and one of my personal favorites on the stream...

These things are tough as nails, float great and though I don't know what the trout think they are, they sure bring them to the top! CJ

Nice tie, though yours always are! I like the placement on the Medalist, too.

Thanks for sharing, and I hope all is well with you in NY.

Cool tie. I haven't used these, but I'm intrigued by the tailing method.

Hi Tim, glad to see you posting here. I'm pretty busy with school--as I'll bet you are, and haven't been posting much, but hope to see you on the J this year. John's going to be hard to keep up with after all the workouts those redfish gave him in Florida.

Posts: 28Martin,

It's great to talk here, too, and you always have some very informative posts. My school year is going well, and I hope yours is, too. I don't believe we got to fish together last year, so we'll have to this coming season.

I'm looking forward to seeing John, and have no doubts he'll be back in shape and ready to fish (maybe even with those HEAVY bamboo rods!).

Now there's a great fly - simple, easy to tie, yet oh so buggy looking...I have a nice Whiting gold white neck, same in black, and a nice new brown neck. I can tie these by the hundreds! And I find they make a great midge imitation in the smaller sizes (#16 and below) for fish that aren't too picky. A classic that still works today!

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

That was a go to fly a few years back when I did my trip into the Bob Marshall Wilderness. The tough part was finding hackle to tie them in a #8.
They are extremely versatile as you can fish them so many different ways and a relatively simple quick tie.
Great Photo by the way.
