google jacklin and green drake there is a real good video of him tying the fly
That is a neat finish.
The best green drake I have ever fished.
Kelvin, how does a guy talk you out of a half dozen of number one? I'll give you a report. I think those all look good, but the first just screams I'm buggy come over here and eat me.
Interesting, I like the foam extended body on that one.
Photo of your fav pattern Please
Pm me your adress I know I got it somewhere
you have to make the body first and let it dry for a day so give me a few days
take me fishing somewhere
I have used John Barrs Vis A-dun. I noticed these Large mayflies in early fall on the river in my back yard, and I had nothing to match a may fly that big. I looked in Mr Barrs book for a may fly pattern and found his Vis A dun (Barr Flies chapter 14 Page 103). This fly worked well for me. I like the look of the foam Idylwilde fly, and the others posted. A fun hatch to fish for sure.
we should do a Green Drake swap anyone interesrted?
I just take a bunch of light colored adams and a pocket full of colored felt pens for matching the color of hatch .
