Sample text

We may have reached the threshold in wire strength. Basically, what has happened is we have been working with metal for thousands of years, while we have spent only 60 years with extruded nylon monofilament. In the recent past, you broke tippets; now, you're more likely to open the bend of a small hook. To address hook-strength and improve hookups, many standard patterns can be adapted to shorter-shank hooks. Baetis are among the most common small-mayfly hatches around the world. They were the catalyst for my trying to create a good, buoyant spring-creek mayfly with a larger-gap hook.

The foam also makes it easy to tie flies with light bellies and dark backs. Cement the shank of the hook and create a thread base. Clean and stack a clump of elk hair. Tie in the hair behind the hook eye a distance equal to one quarter the length of the shank. Wrap in front of the wing to prop it upright; the wing should be as long as the shank of the hook. On the second cast, I missed the biggest fish, over 20 inches. I rested them for a while and then cast to a fish along an undercut hank. He ate on the first good drift.

With the success of the original, I have added a lighter-colored Glass-House with a tan case and amber glass bead. This version is good for species (Glossosoma and Dicosmoecus) that make their cases of sand or pebbles. Slide the metal bead and the glass bead on the shank of the hook. Behind the beads, start your thread and tie in a length of copper wire. Dub the case up to the back of the beads, leaving a very small gap between the dubbing and the glass bead. Reverse-rib the clubbing with the copper wire.
