    Chocolate Mint Assassin, Copper Assassin, Strawberry Blonde Assassin. Really easy pattern to tie. Put on the crystal flash at a 45 degree angle by building up the thread to hold it. Tie in dubbing and then tie in the most orange furnace hackle you can find. dub the body and palmer the hackle. Another variation that I like, but am out of, is the Purple Halo. It is tied exactly the same but palmered with a purple hackle for use in low light conditions.

    Tiemco-2457 in sizes 6 and 8 are my preferred choice with a tungsten bead head.

    Help! I'm trapped in a landlocked state.
    Do you nymph that or swing that? Or a little of both?

    Nymph to the swing with 60-80 feet of line out. Being taught some mending styles become the difference between fish and no fish for the most part. I taught DD and Mike the way this is done last year in CA. Much more line manipulation is required for the proper presentation than when simply using a sink tip as you have to stay in contact with the fly without dragging it through the water. About 30% of the fish in CA and on the Ronde were caught on the dead drift part of the presentation.

    Thanks. I think I just read an article on this - something to do with keeping the last little bit of line mended downstream with the rest mended upstream. May or may not be what you're talking about. Looks like you had a great trip.

    long nymphong soft hackles is a blast when u get it right. a bright loop or an indicator line are really helfpfull for watching the tip of the line "pause" when u get a strike.

    cast 45 upstream and make one upstream mend, then start to raise ur rod/stip in line until the fly is at 90, by this time the mend should be out of the line and it should be straight, feed out whatever u stripped in as upstream mends, then as the fly comes tight at about 45 degrees downstream it should be at its deepest point, allow the fly to swing back up and across the water column controlling the speed with more up or downstream mends...

    hope that helps, might not be jeremys method but it works for me.
