I thought you guys might like to see this with the Hendricksons starting to hatch soon. As much as I like the old Catskill patterns I also like to tie some innovative patterns. The trout will be my judge...

Thank you!

I posted more details here... http://flypatternsfortrout.com/2012/03/ ... y-pattern/

If try it please let me know how you and the trout like it. I am now using it for all my Emphemerella's, including dorotheas and PMDs.

I know this is an old thread, and I apologise for the bump -- but I was wondering how the new design tested out?

Thanks,

cass

I had one day to really test it when the hatch was on and some big fish were steadily feeding and I got snapped off twice. So I guess the trout approved it. :D
