Another very simple, classicy reverse spider type SRC fly. Four components; hook, thread, hackle, dubbing. I have a few beaches very close to my house that I am very confident hold fish on the right tides this time of year. So for fun, I experiment. Gaudy flies, super simple flies like this one, ugly mistakes (about 67% of my ties), etc. I fish them all just to see what works. Super aggressive SRC help me out by being very willing participants!

From the vise of Steve Herter, Steamboat Springs, Colorado, his Chinese Dissident

Dissedent - 1.jpg
Hook: Very tiny dry fly. Steve particularly likes the Tiemco 103BL these days
Thread: Gray. UTC 70-denier Gray Brown a favorite
Tails: Gray fibbets, long
Wings: Single piece of gray foam V clipped
Hackle: Dun tied parachute (optional)

Herter, “ I invented this fly during the Beijing Uprising and since Foam Wing Dun sounded kinda Oriental, Chinese Dissident ……”

Just for you a lil history on this fly it was named after the fly shop and bait store here on the Kalama. Back in the day it was a going place with fly anglers from all over the world coming to the Kalama for the extremely good salmon and steelhead fishing we once had. With the fish in a never ending decline so was the customer influx thus ending and closure of Prichard's Western Angler store. Everytime I drive by the shop and see it all closed up brings back such great memories and I can't help feeling great sorrow for what it once was. When the shop closed it was owned by the Orzel family around 2010 or 11
