Here is a late day post of a PMD Emerger Extended Body. Very busy day but I did manage to remember this post today. These type of extended body flies are great looking little bugs even if I have had very little luck fishing them. It is all in the timing and I guess I have never been good at that or that tricky little thing called 'matching the hatch'. I will continue to read on the subject and practise my observation of the insects aquatic but until I get it.... I will just enjoy the beauty of these flies.
Also here is a very ugly reversed tied fly I tied after seeing how the hook of a normal dry fly dips below the waterline and is very visible to a trout. My hope in this fly is that the hackles will disguise the hook and make it more appealing to a trout.
Is it a new technique? No. Is it a new attempt for me? Absolutely.
