    Default Fly of the Week - May 10, 2010

    BIVISIBLE MOOSE

    This Bivisible pattern has survived the test of time on the water, and is a permanent fixture in my box. I began tying the Brown/Grizzly version with a heavy moose body hair tail to add better floatability. It has fished extremely well for me over the years. It’s a very basic pattern to tie and has become one of my most productive search patterns. It can be easily trimmed to adjust its position in the film by V-notching the grizzly hackle as well. This pattern simply catches fish when others catch more fishermen.

    Sorry about the delay.
    Got the files replaced and put up.
    Simple pattern.
    I'll have to remember this one when I get back from the CWFI this week.

    PS: Ralph! Send me a "Personal Message" on FAOL's "Private Message" board, and send me your mailing address I will send you a CD of all the fly patterns including your's that have run on FAOL since the beginning in 1997. All articles are in PDF and required the current download of the free Adobe Reader. That is the only way I can put so much information on a 700 MB CD (currently I still have over 300 MB of space remaining on the CD for more articles to be added).

    Great pattern. Simple, clean and it looks like a great fish catcher. Thanks for sending in a pattern. Keep 'em coming.
