Not as sexy as Billy’s, but a couple for the smallie box this spring.
I’ve had a Martinelli whip finisher for at least 30 years and finally kind of taught myself how to use it tonight. I felt like a total spaz trying to figure it out. Old dog, new tricks....

Got myself a new partridge skin... so I had to do a soft hackle!

A lot harder to hide clumsy thread wraps on such a simple fly. This will be my next project to focus on for a few weeks
You know the fish don't care, but you'll grab the best ones first and fish them confidently. Nice tie.

[QUOTE="b_illymac, post: 1682316, member] Hopefully the willow blade wobbles on the kill (think smallmouth) :D almost time to test...


Hmmm.....if you troll that using a downrigger and a euro nymphing rod, is it even fly fishing bro?

It is! Since two negatives cancel each other out.
