notes on fishing & travel

I am a fan of the Scupzilla in Size 8 for trout.  With its weighted head with an articulated body with rabbit, it make a great fly to swing through some pool holding trout.  The issues with commercial patterns is limited colour choice and few are tied down to a size 8.

So here the latest set for this spring, with some additional touches.

  • Allowance for copper or gold heads.
  • Colours – better imitation of tan and olive baitfish.
  • Willingness to add in marabou collar or dyed amherst on the side.

What remains is adding in a Brown Trout Variant and an Emerald Shiner.
