Finally I found the fly box containing among other flies the one I call: The Incredible Hulk. The name is naturally coming from a certain Green very known character seen on film. Incredible has a special meaning because, even if this is the final result from a fly I composed many years ago, it attracts large trout and grayling like no wet fly I ever tried.
I remember a year when I almost exclusively used this pattern and I've never gotten so many big trout as that year. Especially trout from 1+ pound and upwards. I think it was that year that I got my biggest trout ever in my favorite still water and since every trout taken in that water must be put in a logbook (or whatever it's called) where you specify the length, weight and species it seems that it never has been caught a bigger trout than that one in this water in recent time.
Although this is certainly not a tiny fly I post it anyway because I've been requested to show it and how it is made so here it is. As you can see this is a used fly and I would estimate that I've taken like 2 dozen trout on this hook since I've been forced to tie the fly or repair it several times. If it's tied properly though it will be just the deer hair part that needs a refinish. A step by step tying description will follow soon since I've been requested to do this.
Have fun and More Info Will Follow,M.O.
