The wing helps the Chernobyl land upright, otherwise, being a surf board-shaped piece of foam on a hook, it lands upside down half the time. Try the ones you have for sunfish and bass, Karst. They chomp Chernobyl patterns like there’s no tomorrow. Maybe they know something we don’t. Now I’m worried.
I never fished the San Juan. Keep thinking I should. Just never find the time. And the crowds freak me out. Somebody might try talking to me while I’m finishing. Or cast over my line. Or throw rocks at me on account of my tendency to sing ABBA tunes as I drift flies at trouts.
My terrestrial tying continued last night with some Lafontaine foam beetles. I tried them years ago and didn’t feel very confident in them. But I’m going to give them another shot this summer on some mountain lakes in Wyoming. Hopefully I’m not abducted by a UFO while I’m camping up there. Wish me luck!
