    Next trip is probably going to be to a little blue line for Westslopes; they're not real picky. Updated version with the mono core for durability and all synth wing for simplicity.

    hook - Dai Riki 135 #10
    thread - UTC 140 burnt orange
    core - 12lb mono
    tail - deer hair
    abdomen - 1mm foam orange
    wing/post - Congo Hair white
    hackle - grizzly/brown
    legs - rubber medium brown
    thorax - dubbing orange


    Regards,
    Scott

    Scott, you inspired me to tie a carnage-style Drake to imitate the big ones that come off here. Only had time to tie one before my last trip up to the river, but it turned out ok and they were hatching so I tied it on. First cast, hooked into a nice (16-18") brownie; a few seconds later, he snapped me right off. I think I'm sold on this style!

    Proportions are off, but the fish didn't care. Also, a gallows tool seems like a good idea, they're kind of a PITA without.

    Stinks when you lose the only one you have, but at least it went out in a blaze of glory.

    Absolutely. I like the duck flank wing
