Notes on the Fly
The fly on the left is my old blood worm pattern, and the fly on the right is the new one with modifications.
At first glance they seem the same! Look closer and you will find the changes I talked about in the previous post. No head, more slender, and larger segmentation. A much closer representation to the natural.
Using this new fly I landed my largest trout to date in my home stream this past weekend! It may not have been completely due to the fly, after all I am a firm believer in presentation is 9/10 of the law, but making the fly look closer to the real thing couldn't have hurt!
