I wanted to make a flashy fly a bit larger then the Goldie to imitate some of the larger anchovies I’ve been encountering.

I added a articulated tail and tied these with Polar Reflector Flash.

I'm tying "one offs" for now, with fish around I want to see if I get a positive reaction. Stained water or low light or cloudy day or maybe in the spring....who knows if it will catch? I like tying with bright colors and pastels

Finally got some time to tie up some more cased Caddis . I was going to collect some fine pebbles and grit from the river to tie some the way I used to. I don't if I want to go through the trouble I like the look of the burnt estaz and sparkle chenille .

Those are slick and I have always enjoyed fishing cased caddis. Not sure if you’ve seen this method before, but burning the end of a feather quill and gluing it over and underbody of dubbing or chenille makes a pretty nice case too.

Thanks . I might try something like that if it's not to time consuming . I tend to lose a few flies when I'm out as such simple and ease of the dressing goes a long way with me . Takes a bit of the sting away knowing I can replace in short order .

Oh yes, that’s a very good point...and I also can’t say that it’s going to accomplish anything better than you already have. Maybe save it for one of those afternoons when the tight grips of winter need a little loosening.

Anybody using Kreelex for saltwater..??  Kind of a clouser style. I think I am going to throw in a small red lazer dub throat for gills... Dry and wet view
