I'm in....I am going to tie a caddis pattern that has always been my GO TO fly... I will post photos as I tie them.

I'm in. Thanks for hosting!! It'll be one of my best performers. It's not a dainty dry or even a respectable nymph. It just catches trout no matter were you go.

Olive Crystal Bugger. Trout just love it!

The McGinty Fly!! Great choice!!! My Granddad has one in his old fly box, he told me it used to be one of his best. I could never bring myself to use it, or tie another. That fly sits on his old Boo retired for the ages. I just look up at that old setup and think of all the fish that were brought to hand by it. Two generations fished with that rod, my Granddad gave it to my Dad and he used it for a good while. That was of course until that new fangled fiberglass rod came out. I have always wanted to take the old Boo out to catch just one fish to make the third generation but I'm afraid it just would hold up anymore.

Anyway, Thanks for the memory!!!!
