Blue Diamond Phillips
I might as well do the fly of the week again as the Truckee’s still pumping and there ain’t a lot of fishing around here except for the LT. I guess I could get creative, but I’d rather go shred some dirt on my niner. This fly has wrecked ’em the last few years, looks like a beatis to trout, but hell, I’m not a trout so..I even tie these guys up to a size #6 and fish them deep in the big holes up from my house, works well. I gave it a nice 70’s look in the photo. Put a little hard as nails or epoxy over the sili-skin, so them toothy critters don’t chew it all up.
