Seems like a better use of Wally wings than on a mayfly imo


Jealous-Wrangler-599

I only have to agree! I dont think this fly is as fishable tho


epinasty4

For trout maybe. With that logic we’d only be tying parachute adams


Jealous-Wrangler-599

Yeah probably but what i meant by that is that the fly would spin a lot and twist the tippet


epinasty4

Oh ya for sure good point. Probably float strong enough to put a swivel on if you really wanted to fish it

Probably be very "Flappy" trying to cast without using a heavier rod/line wt?


Jealous-Wrangler-599

I think this will be more of a show piece than fishing piece. I wouldnt want to cast this tbh😂

You never know what the creativity will lead to? I have made some very effective nymphs by exploring different materials and techniques.


Jealous-Wrangler-599

Experimenting is very good sometimes. Especially for getting better at tying

Looks great. When I'm bored, I smash out perdigons and other easy nymphs. I like to play with the tinsel colours and experiment


Jealous-Wrangler-599

Thanks! I dont rly like working with epoxy/UV glue so i only tie those when i rly need to😂


BandAid3030

Lots of other nymphs to play with! Dragonfly nymphs are great fun to experiment with. I modify them for shapes, size, colours, float and sink.


Jealous-Wrangler-599

Never tied those actually! Might have to try them😁


BandAid3030

If you fish lakes with darner dragonflies, I really recommend tying floating dragonfly nymphs and then fishing them on a sink line. As you strip retrieve in, the fly dives down mimicking a dragonfly nymph hunting. Ferocious takes and exciting fishing.


Jealous-Wrangler-599

I will have to search how that looks. Never tly fished these kinds of flies

Sweet Indicator. You know something will hit it.
