I finally got out on the water a few times but I could not record the trips because I lost the charger to my camera. I'm back in business now and I thought I would share what's been working this winter. This first fly is actually a grayling pattern from Great Britain. It is a little wisp of nothing tied on the first third of the hook shank. It looks like a half finished fly but the trout were stupid over it. I fished this fly off a dropper on my standard Czech nymph set-up and it out fished my favorite patterns 3:1.
