At the Desk Tying Trash Flies
The first one that caught my attention was the Foam Emerger by Masamitsu Kasuya. Just my speed - easy to tie and simple enough to work. Tied these up on a #16 scud hook. Now I can't wait to try it out - I bet the Tenkara Sunfish will kill them!
From there I went into tying up a few flies I had to replenish my box. The beetle has long been a favorite of mine so it is no wonder why I am always re-stocking them in my small fly box. With the creeks and tiny mountain streams I go to searching out the brookies, the small terrestrials are always a viable option to tie. A passing trout cant help to give these little guys a look. The only problem I have had with them is when fishing them I find it hard to see them at distance. They are usually tied in #14 or #16 sizes and with a black body, I usually just fish a rise in the area of where I think my fly is drifting. To solve this problem I have began to add a little white nail polish to the back of these stellar bugs.
