A killer fly
Indeed it did. In the next 20 minutes I landed seven more sandies and missed at least that many hits. Mark had noticed the remarkable change in my luck and asked to see the fly. He expressed surprise that such a small fly, even though weighted, could be so successful. In the next days I intend to tie up a number of this fly in size 18, 16 and 14, each with a commensurate size tungsten bead. I can’t wait till the females arrive in the Elm Fork. Oh, yes: this time there will be an appropriate three-weight line on my reel.
