Great pattern to follow from a much respected fly tyer :smokin:
I like what you are doing with this pattern!! So many possibilities .... it's one of those patterns that all you do is change up the colours and your good to go for the season.
Very nice work, these should hunt well for you
Thanks for the kind words everyone! Yes I believe Aaron's pattern is very adaptable and I have been "hooked" on it since I saw his original post back in January. Here are the other color combos I have tried.
Nice flies fish tech. Was up your way the week of 4/6 and the blue and black style was the only fly for me that received any interest from those tough SR steelies. I also like all the variations that can be created from this fly.
Great looking flies! I feel honored that others would find inspiration in my work. This has become my go-to fly for swinging lately. It's all of my favorite properties of a fly wrapped into one pattern. I'm going to have to try some of the color combos you posted for myself. I especially like the Black and white "copcar" version you posted.
