So, I took the Guadalupe Green Fly and bastardized it into my own bead- head pattern with no hackles.
This is the result. Pattern works well in yellow, white, black, chartreuse and olive. Caught 5 bass with it this past weekend, plus a whole bunch of panfish and one Rio Grande Cichlid. (The Cichlid turned out to be one awesome fighter on a fly rod!) Haven't tried it on trout yet. Don't have access to the trout sections of the Guad. Anyhow, thought I'd share. I'm calling it a "Bead Head Lupe" after my home waters. http://snapguide.com/guides/tie-a-bead-head-lupe-fly/ -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the "VFB Mail" group.
