So I look for things that peak my interest. I've found recipes for Marabou Leeches, Marabou Damsel Nymphs, Wooly Worms, of course the Mickey Finn, and several others. All of which I have the material for. But over the weekend I came across one I just couldn't resist. Since I had to go to Sacramento on Monday, to get the back brakes replaced on my truck, I made a trip over to Fly Fishing Specialities in Citrus Heights. They claim to have the biggest inventory of fly fishing material in the Sacramento area. With list in hand, I entered the store. They had everything on my list and it was an extensive one. They also had a few things I didn't have on the list, but took home anyway. I also found white hackle for a white Wooly Bugger that I've not been able to find anywhere, even on the internet.
OK, so what is this one I couldn't resist? If you've seen it before, make like you've just seen it for the first time, OK?
Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the Montreal Bucktail Whore. Love the name.
Like I said, I couldn't resist. With a name like that, it's got to catch fish. The one above I tied. Here is the link to the one I found on the internet. You can see it a little bit better.http://www.classicflytying.com/pattern5336.html
Wow, I didn't realize this fly tying was going to get so involved. I started it just to tie Wooly Buggers and I'm now up to 7 different flys. Oh well, it does give me something to do when it's raining and I'm not sure when it's going to stop. We got heavy rain yesterday and more due tomorrow. Even though, I am going up to Ice House and see if I can get the Float Tube Cumberland in the water. Try some of these flys I've been tying.
I'll report when I get back. Till then,
