  4. North Central Native Trout

    Looks like the Government. may be backing off on Bans but I hope they will now focus on habitat destruction. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/alberta-trout-fishing-recovery-plan-1.4546810

    A few new Caddis designs in #14. Foam Body for a bit more flotation and no Hackle. Call em Doc's Yellow Caddis, Doc's Tan Caddis & Doc's Sparkle Caddis. Should be interesting to try these patterns out this year and see if the Trout like em. .

  9. stonefly tails - alternatives

    Moose Body hair is really nice because its tough and seems to stand up for me through a few trout. Short deer hair is also a good option, but I usually look for short hair from the neck which dosn't flair as much. I was also contemplating using flex or rubber legs.

    I carry both Parachute and Traditional. They will both work at different times and conditions.

    You flies look great jgig0e. I was lucky to have quite a number of mentors over the years including parents that tied and quite a few commercial guys that I have been blessed to know. Every time I sit down at the vice I learn or remember something. I'm far from perfect. Some of the most fantastic tiers I've known didn't strive for perfection but enjoyment. When I run lessons I push proportions and the less as more rule.

    I often go back to swinging Wet Flies in the old timy manner when the condition are right. It can be a great way to imitate stages of a hatch of Mayflies, Caddis or small baitfish . Originally tied by a Yellowstone National Park guide Frank Beals, who supposedly would shake with anticipation on the morning of a fishing trip. Used to imitate the Isonychia (Slate Drake) or October Caddis.
