I Hope The Good Doctor Doesn't Mind

Post by Brk Trt » Fri May 05, 2017 8:05 am

Over the last few years I've had an affair with the Cinberg. It has given me many a day of enjoyment on the stream.
I tie this fly a bit different as far as materials go, but I do incorporate the main player the wood duck collar.

Here are a few meetings with the local brook trout and the Cinberg.

I hope the good Doctor Cinberg doesn't mind the variation. I hope to fish this fly one day on his beloved Neversink.

Alan looks like you have the WD hackleing down pat. I sure enjoy your skills sharing these field experiences. I have yet to dabble into the talent needed to fish a short two weight. Would you be so kind as to give us some idea what your rigging might be on a daily bases so as to get the various offerings you use to those challenging little Brooks?

Jerry,
Most times I use a furled leader 3ft, to that I'll tie on a 3ft 6x tippet. When fishing these streams I almost always fish downstream, meaning I cast and let the fly drift downstream. 99% of the time I fish dries or wet-soft hackles, these flies can be effective for they can be fished in various ways. I at times will fish a dry subsurface like a wet, brookies will attack flies fished like this, and some of the soft-hackles I fish I will dress with floatant about 4 inches of the tippet to bring the fly almost on the surface. These streams require stealth more than the fly or a precise presentation.

And best of all they're the most rewarding type of fishing.
As Datus Proper referred to them as "Real Fishing"

Great-looking Cinbergs Alan. You tye them with shaggy bodies the way I like them.

Thanks so much for your explanation Alan. I view your blog often and had always wondered about your setup and techniques.

Regards, Jerry
