That sounds like a grand old southern fly fishing method my Granddad would use, we called it dapping for bass.
How old are you again? :)
Nice fly! I really like that! Could you do a FOTM? I need to tie a half dozen of those in cream and brown for the gulf, they look like a good crab imitation.
Here are a few photos taken from czechnymphs.com:

If you're lame like me you get the sticker:
Robin, I hope to get over there during the Christmas break, I plan on using my spey rod and a sinking leader.
My vote for most fatiguing (I'm including mental fatigue (getting bored) as well as physical exertion) style of fishing would be:
1st) Streamer fishing (more cast and you need to strip all they...
Tie them on tube flies to escape the pike's teeth.
Maybe a really long crackleback?
I (and many many trout around these parts) LOVE Hans' IOBO Humpy. It's one of the deadliest dries I've ever fished.

The woven fly looks amazing as does Davy's sets.
I have a few of Al Campbell's flies as well as Jim Hatch. All I need now is some of Oliver Edwards' and I'm all set.
Jared ask around the base, back when I use to guide a few years ago I know that groups of soldiers out of Lawton would visited the Lower Mountain Fork River every few months for fly fishing trips. ...
I like your new flies JJ and I hope '76 isn't considered vintage yet because I may be well past my prime now! The hackle I used was plain 'ol Med Light Dun Hen Neck hackle. I find it perfect for...

Good lookin' flies! :D
The hooks look close to the size of a TMC 20s to me but they're bronze. Here is a size 20 soft hackle on a TMC I just tied up:...
Perch and bream are the most common name for them in Oklahoma
I believe in luck. When I take a stream sample or catch an emerging insect, look at a rise and select the proper fly, all I'm doing is hedging my bet that I might catch a trout.
To me, if you...
