I just love fishing these types of midges. Really nice job.

Dark Knight Jig

Sweet looking fly and nice picture. I like the way that black krystal flash looks.  Would probably go well with some CDC hackle, too.

Here's an attractor pattern that I wasn't really sure I should post because I consider it my own design.  I know, I know and I hate saying that because with what must be hundreds of thousands of fly tyers in the world it would not surprise me if someone starts screaming that their uncle Frank used to tie the exact same thing and he even got it published it in a book back in 1992!  Then the next thing you know uncle Frank is at your house banging on your door with a gun.  Anyway this pattern is created from common methods and techniques that we all know and love. And with all apologies to uncle Frank I can say that I arrived at it on my own. 

This fly has been productive for me anytime terrestrials are working, locally that can be June through October here in the Northeast.  I fish it exactly as an emerger at the surface.  No floatant, dead drift in the surface film. A subtle twitch of the rod can make the legs kick.

Red Tag Palmer

Tail: 1.  Red Marabou  2.  Red Wool. 

Palmer: India Hen 'Greenwell'

The photos shows how I trapped the front of the peacock body when wrapping the hackle on #2.  

I think I prefer the longer, sweeping hackle.
