    Re: 2010 Favorite Fly Swap(s)

    Just checked in for the first time in a week or so. I see there are some open slots in round two still. I hope they get filled, so everyone gets one of the emerging olive flys I started tying.

    Re: 2010 Favorite Fly Swap(s)

    Doublehaul:

    Since you live and fish the Adirondacks, with the recent
    passing of Fran Betters, I would be honoured to tie one
    his patterns for the swap.



    The Usual

    If you haven't fished this pattern, you need to do yourself
    a huge favour and try it.

    I have fished this pattern from Maine to the Smokies and it
    is a favourite of mine.

    I tried fishing one with white thread under wrap and it doesn't
    work no where as well as having the orange thread.



    I just special ordered today some materials from
    Tight Lines Fly Shop. If it comes in before the
    deadline, I shall tie a bonus fly of Fran Betters' design.



    Here is a tease.. check out the hook I'll be using
    for that second fly.

    Re: 2010 Favorite Fly Swap(s)

    The benefit to the orange thread in the usual is that it can help represent the color of an emerging sulphur or the color of a caddis its just enigmatic enough. I participated in a NEFF swap a few swaps back and tied a usual variation that I have had great success with for selective trout and chris said it killed, so I am sure he wouldn't mind another of the usual.

    A rabbits foot can truly be good luck for the angler, Art Lee wrote an excellent article in fly fisherman magazine on how to tie variations of the usual. The articles name was "The Usual With a Twist". This article was published some time ago but can be found in "The Lore of Trout Fishing", so if you have read the usual on the usual check out that book.

    When I think of the usual I do not think of Fran Better first, but the Dette family. The few times I have had the good fortune to shop at the Dettes fly shop in Roscoe. An acquaintance of mine would clear the Dette stock of here usuals. The most productive usuals were by far the ones that my acquaintance referred to as theblueusual. In one day I saw that fly take 5 + fish over eighteen inches in one spot.
