My Version of the Carey Special
« on: March 15, 2012, 06:34:51 AM »
Here's another one of my favourite stillwater patterns. This pattern is a true Canadian classic, that has accounted for many species of fish to the net. It is designed to immitate several types of aquatic insects and other food sources of the trout, and is a great all-round attractor pattern.

My version utilizes some UV and non-traditional components that makes this classic pattern even more productive...

Hey Todd,

what was the body of the crystal carey that we were tying last year?  or is that on the low down?   :-X

That was a crystal chenille that's produced by Dragonfly Performance Fly Fishing Products.

For me, the quality of a trout is not measured in inches or pounds, but rather by the journey and circumstances that allowed our paths to cross...

This fly looks for very fishy! Another one to add to the lake box. Thanks for sharing Todd!
