Lost a few flies on the last trip. Only had one of the trout magnet flies anyway and it did really well. I've lost a few of Tom's Crystal Calf tails and need some more. So I dusted off the tools and tied a few. My dry is not nearly as purdy as Tom's, but I bet the fish won't care. :D I had to change a few of the materials to what I had on hand.

This is actually a pic of the one left in my box, but you get the idea. 8-)

I bet that Caddis Larva would really fish good if it did'nt have that bead on the front :mrgreen:

I really like the dry with that lime green in it. Over the last 4-5 years I have caught a load of trout on a Dun EHC with a lime body

JT, I have an all lime green DHC. Deer hair caddis, since it's the only green hair I have. We have some small lime green bugs come off occasionally. Looks like a small stone fly. The caddis works great. It's the one on the left. It's responsible for a very nice brookie on a tiny little stream I like to fish.

Yeah,
We have a bright green Stone Fly here also.....bought size#18.
I am a big fan of dry flies with green/lime in them during warm weather
