1st EHC

Recommended Posts

Just tied up 2 of these, but figured I should stop and see if I need to change something! Tried my best with my camera, but interested to see what you guys think!! Thanks, once again!

Based on the photo I would say the wing is a little long, I like it a bit past the bend of the hook but not too much. I also like the hackle to just touch the point of the hook no longer. A better picture would help but with EHC's as long as the wing does not spin around the hook they will catch fish.

I agree with Joe about the wing length. BUT that fly will catch fish :D ! The EHC is one of my go-to flies. Try it with a couple of turns of CDC under the wing, too. That's the way I normally tie them, and they really annoy the elusive Brook Trout I pursue.
