Going Deep...


When sun is high and surface is calm, heavy tungsten-head pupae save the day...short line style.

Oh yes.... those are heavy bomb...
I will need to tie some of those too!

Very nice... Vlad, what kind of rig you use? My common strategy for the fast water is tie one of those heavy bomb first, then trailing with another small unweighted mayfly nymph.

Mark,

I know these nymphs are your style... I must admit, I usually fish a single fly, and I should use droppers more. When I fish particular spring creek in Iowa, I sometimes use heavy leech and trail unweighted San Juan worm behind it-it works very well. Your combination sounds great (like a small PT nymph behind a 'bomb'.)

They are heavy and easy to snag, so quick ties are best.

"They are heavy and easy to snag, so quick ties are best."

Totoally agree with you!
I am more "kind of" impressionist in fly tying... mainly due to my laziness... I am thinking use smaller bomb with slim profile maybe will reduce the snag rate (finer leader for faster sinking rate).

I heard of the San Juan worm behind leech or bugger could be deadly...I should try some of those too. good call, Vlad!

Vlad, what reel is that one beside the brown trout... Looks like CFO1? great looking reel!

Mark,

I love CFO's but this is just a little 3" Beaudex, with the brass foot from P-foot.

Beautiful flies...a sharp fiberglass build...and a classy Young reel. Who needs anything more?

Thanks Cam,

Each time I use a Young reel I realize how nice those reels are...can't go wrong with any of them.
