I just started tying about two weeks ago and have quickly realized how addictive it can be. I started easy with greenie weenies and san juan worms and once my wife taught me how to dub, I've been focusing on using that technique. It's just so damn fun. I was messing around one night drinking hot tea and listening to some Neil Young and came up with the fly below. Once finished, I realized it looked a lot like a walt's worm or a generic caddis larva. I'm calling it "chrome dreams" in homage to the great Neil Young record that was spinning in the background and all the chrome that makes up the fly.
Here's the recipe:
Silver beadhead, gray hare-tron dubbing, silver ribbing, and some silver ice dubbing for the collar.
I'm going to mess around with the beadhead and ice dubbing colors to get some cool patterns that I think, and hope, trout will take an interest in.
