A collection of new and old fly patterns, fly tying tips and tricks
and other fly fishing articles
That hopper one is really cool!
I guess these were just a bit before my time. I really like the ones labeled "transistors." To think a fish would eat a piece of electronic gadgetry is pretty funny. The fish pellet would be killer on stocker Rainbows.
In the picture there is an orange corker just above the kernal of corn. I have been fishing a yellow version of that one since 1988. I fact I just made 60 of them today.I was told they are legal on PA FlyFishing only waters if they are tyed on to the hook. A few wraps of monocord fulfills that obligation.They can be very deadly in low water situations fished directly upstream and presented properly. I have caught hundreds of trout using this technique. I am not sure what the trout think this is. I believe the plunk as it lands indicates that the table has been set. Mr. McIntyre lived a couple of hilltops away from me in Pittsburgh. I have several other of the items shown in the picture but have not mass produce any yet.Frank
