Ephemeroptera Dinosaurus

Postby deepminnow » Sun Aug 15, 2010 9:26 am

Last week I made a pleasant discovery. Once again I can get to outerbanksflyfishing. You say, "What's the big deal?" Well I've been living overseas for a while and my IP address wasn't kosher with the host network security. I couldn't reach obxff. Something changed in the ether world and now I can.

I can't say I've been fishing often, but I have however been able to do a bit of fly tying once in a while. Here's one I did a few weeks ago. I keep imagining that if I were back in VA now, I'd drop this thing on a striper who's sipping small stuff under some dock lights.

The background is the cover of a book my son Peter was reading beside me when I was tying this. It reminded me of the Jurassic Park image that I posted a long time ago.

Will this work now???

Cheers!
Andy

I can't say for sure, but I think it should to work on the chalk streams. It's time for a bit of field testing.
