stolen from the Limp, a spectacular improvement of Bob Wyatt’ DHE tying process. As the previous post amply demonstrates, I’m not the nimblest guy this side of the Rio Bravo, so I was convincing myself (while rereading Trout Hunting, a brilliant book in many respect if you ask me) that the DHE in a couple of colors and sizes is probably most of what I need for surface feeding fishes, with perhaps a DH sedge for good measure.
So I was: ok, I’ll start my flytying training with it when I have finished the two rods I’m building. And bam! Marc comes up with this:
So I guess, my 2012 box will be full of DHEs, from 12 to 18 (there’s no possible world in which I can tie a 20 fly).
