August Flies From the Vise

Recommended Posts

Killer Diller - There are at least 3 other fly patterns using this same name!  This pattern was developed by C. L. Batchelder from Kalamazoo, MI sometime after 1970.  C. L. was known as a fine fly tyer and fly fisherman.  This is a great pattern if you have a lot of badger dry fly hackle on hand as it the only material used to tie this pattern!  There is also a version of this fly that substitutes furnace hackle - again, a one material fly.  This is best fished at night by skittering it across the water's surface as it is taken as a large stonefly or moth imitation.

Lacey's Caddis - First tied by Jeff "Bear" Andrews from Grand Ledge, MI in the 1990's.  This pattern is a representation of the late season October caddis hatches.  This fly is named after Lacey, a Springer Spaniel and unofficial shop mascot at The Great Lakes Flyfishing Company in Rockfort, MI.

Here's my contribution to the 2525, all synthetic swap

Andrew Grillos' Spin Doctor. Tied rusty spinner.

Hook: standard dry fly size 18

Thread: 8/0 Uni Camel

Tail: light dun micro fibbets. 4 split 2 and 2

Abdomen/thorax: rusty brown super fine

Wing: gray Mcflylon. One "strand" makes three wings. 

Over body/thorax: .5 mm opaque brown razor foam

Indicator: .5 mm opaque orange razor foam.

Thread base, tie in and split the Tails. Get the tip of the foam tied in. Finish tying in the Tails. Tie in the wings, spinner style. Dub a couple of X wraps over the wings. Dub to the foam. Tie the foam in. Couple of Thread wraps then over the foam, to segment the body. When you get to the wing Tie in the indicator. Take both foam straps over the wing. Tie down. Whip finish. Trim everything. Finito.
