My Mop Fly video is now live, and I'd love to hear what others think of a pattern like this. Enjoy!

It was unbeatable in WV the other week. Blue and chartreuse were the two colors that seemed to work best.

The goal was get trout on the line and it worked.

Barbed hooks rule!

I am not lazy.  I just truly enjoy doing nothing.

My definition of work: Doing something in which effort exceeds gain.

Most pics were taken with the guy's phone I was guiding. It was a PHW event. 40+ vets.

The only one I have my phone is this one on a black crystal bugger.

This post is not exactly a ringing advertisement for the mop fly, but honestly, it's probably not a fly I am going to fish if I were on the water. I had to ask other guides for a couple for him to use and I think they all ended up in trees. We probably landed 2 on the mop. Went to clown eggs. Then hopper droppers which worked well, although I can't remember what the dropper was.

Around the campfire, the mop was reported as widely successful.
