    Over the weekend, since I'm on Christmas break, i have had a lot of time on my hands, so I wanted to make my own fly pattern. I wanted to make a hex nymph, but I hadn't quite figured out what materials I'd use or how id tie it. But it came to me, and this is what my idea turned into. It's very realistic, extended body( I wrapped dubbing on some mono and tied on three tails), and a poxyback. I'll use it at Lake Almanor next June, and I think it will bite. I would also like some opinions. Thanks. Here it is image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

    Ultimately, it is up to the fish but it sure looks good to me.

    It is a very confusing fly to tie. I don't even know how I can tie it. But soon, within a month or two, I'll do a step by step. Just tied another one. image.jpg
