some local moths over the past two summers
Nothing fishing related, just cool creatures.
Use to have a pattern for these we used on the Madison a few years back, was guarded secret then and probably still is.....I remember it fished well. Really well!
Which one(s)? If someone fishes a giant polyphemus moth pattern on a fly rod (the first photo), that would be a sight to see!
Not sure if it had a name, one of the locals there shared it with me, I'll try and search some of the old boxes and see if I can find it.
Well couldn't find the fly I had, but essentially a larger caddies style fly, try looking spruce moth patterns, there are several out there that would work well
These are common here:
Fun fact: that's what a tomato worm turns into.
I love finding the ones in your link. We would get them up by kettle falls all the time. Don't get them here very often.
I was unaware that the moth I posted was a tomato worm. I haven't seen one of those in years.
We get a lot of these here. When they were little, the Kids chased those relentlessly in both forms. I've never seen one like the drone in the the first post.
