I loved this fly when Aaron first posted it, and Paul's recent beauties and wonderfully different color schemes really made me want to finally give it a go.

This is such a great pattern to play with, and I hope you give it a try! Thanks to Aaron and Paul for the inspiration!!

I usually tend towards more "earthy" tones in most of my flies. Olives, browns, blacks, usually with a touch of yellow are what mostly fill my box. So, I came up with this one...


Golden Olive Daybreaker,






Thanks for the look,

-Bill

Bill you have really been on fire lately! This thing is a real stunner and I cannot wait to swing your fly from martys swap at some summer fish! Are you still working at this all in hand?

Thanks again guys, especially Aaron for coming up with such a great pattern! I'm glad you approve.

Josh, I jump back and forth tying in hand. This one was in the vice. Except on small hooks, I'm still having trouble with floss and tinsel bodies. Haven't tweaked a technique yet.

On more buggy ones, like the swap fly (which I am thrilled you like), I'm still tying in hand- however, when you slack and only tie 3 or 4 in hand and realize time is running short, then it's factory line production mode, back to the vice, and crank the thread!!

Cheers gents,

-Bill
