I need to get on here more often!  You guys are killing it with all the great patterns.

Today I was giving some love to the ol' Crackleback.  Old but not forgotten.

 

That's a pretty fly.

Saw this on a Gunner Brammer video and thought it would be cool. 

 

You were right, it is cool.

Still getting some Isonychias out here in CT.  Galloup's curved hook cripple is the foundation on this one.

I'm not familiar with this, does it lay on the water sideways? Very nice looking and intriguing.

That’s a very nice fly. Do you find the curved body twists your leader much?

Jorgensen’s Saltwater Caddis (variation)

Found this one on the Globalflyfisher site.  Tied here in a freshwater version since I can’t find where I stashed my saltwater hooks; added a wire counterrib to protect that naked ostrich herl.

hook - WFC Model 6 #6
thread - Veevus 6/0 black
rib - ostrich herl rat brown
counterrib - x-small wire silver
body - Ice Dub hare’s ear
collar/head - deer hair dyed olive


Muddler version

It took me a google search and a couple minutes of thinking to the one figured out.  Very nice.

It rides sideways in the water presenting a single wing profile to the fish.  If you get a chance take a look at Kelly Galloup's book Cripples and Spinners, he talks about the idea behind this one cam e from his observation that most spinners and cripples float in a way that the wings are together and the fly rides on its side.

Thank you Scott.  I have fished this curved profile quite a lot this year from Hexes to Tricos and I can't say I have noticed any twisting of tippet or leader.

I "Michiganized" this version with the deer hair body.  Kelly's are often dubbed or biot bodies.  This deer hair body for an Isonychia is really a great match though in my opinion.
