I've been wanting to try some articulated flies, but the cost of the little metal doohickies is kinda outrageous. I found some galvanized wire while cleaning out the shed today and an idea was born. Might not hold up long term, but let's be honest this'll probably end up stuck in a rock or a tree after a few casts 🙄.

SBPATT,

That Michigan Jingler is the first fly pattern that ever took my fancy @ 65 years ago in Griswolds, a  Detroit sporting goods store. It was tied with a thicker body, shorter hook, and even more heavily hackled but the rest identical.    I can still see it to this day.  It was billed a "Michigan Caddis" for night brown trout fishing.

Seems like a long name. I don't think it will catch on. Good luck on your trip.
