Here are the top fish producing flies from last week in no particular order:
San Juan Worm. Fish took these with gusto. I had major issues with them falling apart after a few casts or one bite. I used bright pink. Some had a shrimp pink flat diamond braid body underneath. Violent strikes. Others had luck on red. Producer Jason had his biggest steelie take a red san juan.
Hareline Dubbin and more specifically Greg Senyo materials. I wasn't sure how to tie these so I went to Youtube. I'll post those videos in a second. These flies take a time investment to create. I normally would never spend this much time on a fly but the results were worth it. I've never had a more violent strike than the fish that ate one of these flies. I tied them in blues, pinks, purples, and chartruese. I spent most if not all of my food money for the trip stocking up on all the great materials at All Sesons and Malinda's to enhance these flies. Tying them on Senyo shenks worked much better than cut up bass stinger hooks.
Next up was the Blood's Dot. I had never heard of this fly until the podcast with Autumn Siren Flies. I had one fish bend a hook on this. It looks crazy good when wet and is super easy to tie and fun. Just be sure to tie sparse. Play around with colors.
The fish seemed to change their minds for no apparent reason as to the color, shape, and size of what they would take. And that is the fun of fly fishing. If it wasn't a challenge I probably would knit blindfolded.
