Count me in with a Black Nose Dace. This fly was very productive in PA last year.

A Pitt fan, a Marshall fan, and a WVU fan are climbing a mountain and arguing about who loves their team most. The Marshall fan insists that he is most loyal and then yells,"This is for Marshall!" and jumps off the mountain. Not to be out done,The WVU fan next professes his love for his team. He screams,"This is for the Mountaineers!" and pushes the Pitt fan off the mountain.

Welcome Horseshoes, Bruce and Rogue Flies.  We are half way to a swap.  Really good to see another Rogue River guy on the Forum.

Welcome  stabgnid and rstout, I always enjoy seeing swappers that I haven't swapped with before.  Four spots open, got to be some more Chrome addicts out there.

If you will take a newer member, I would be in, Skykomish Sunrise or a midwest favorite, large Purple Prince Nymph....hell, maybe both?

If you want to put my other tie down it's going to be a Double Legs. It's primarily a sea trout tie but with a little bit brighter Ice Dubbing in two colors I think it's looks like something I'd happily tie on if I ever got back up to the North Shore. The egg is going to be the Lazer Dub slime egg on a heavy hook with a colored brass bead the in center of hook the dub will flow over. Similar ones took a lot of fish up north for us and the only problem with the fancier ones like I'm tying versus the basic ones we did up north is it hurts more when you loose it on the second drift.

 

Skykomish Sunrise be a pretty tie thereWI  Troutbum. I'm assuming if you're WI you fish that driftless area that most people claim has no trout, just a few spotted dace. Too late...the secret's out. I fished that area a lot YEARS ago and then also spent a lot of time fishing Lake Superior streams on the peninsula between Ashland and Bayfield. Folks lived right past the Sioux River and just in from Hwy. 13.
