Cant go wrong with a pumpkinhead on an intermediate in the shallows/reeds in the fall.
I chase the allure of standing in a river, casting dries in an attempt to watch that beast come up and take my fly.  Then I usually blow it by setting the hook to soon....

The recipe for my fly is pretty easy. If you go to www.darkwaterdubbing.wordpress.com you will see an article for it on the website. Pretty easy to tie.

A Beaver Leech!! Stillwater wonder, especially during spring say May into mid June. Bear hair tail beaver fur dubbing and a black tied back black hackle collar. Fish it whatever way you like it just works!

Great idea, Rod!

Here's my Vampire Leech:

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...

Variant GRHE a river and creek favorite. Just change up the Flouro Brite ribbing according to light and water conditions. It is fished either as a dropper fly on a Euro rig or in a wet fly fashion either upstream or on a downstream swing. I have also fished it in lakes as a top or mid fly during a buzzer hatch. I call this pattern "Tidily Bits" The pattern is put together by wrapping Flourobrite down the hook shank to the bend of the hook and then returned towards the hook eye with 3-4 wraps. You can add a tail of Coq de leon, which I like in flowing water scenerios. Half hitch at this point after the tag is laid in place. Split the 120 denier Flourobrite and add in Hares Ear from the ears or brow of the mask. As you know there are five kinds of hair on a hairs mask. The intent is to keep the hair short, sparse and spiked, thats why we use the hair from the locations on the mask that I mentioned. Spin the split thread to a good tight rope and wrap forward to behind the bead. When wet the flourbrite at the core of the dubbing technique gives an undertone from the flurobrite colours that hi-lights the hares ear fur. When behind the bead head add a very small amount of Hends Micro Flash dubbing to hi-light the head area. Brush out the Micro flash dubbing. Picric acid dyed Hares Mask "Tidley Bits" are my favourite for streams. It has the right hue of Golden Olive from the dying process that is just stunning when wet.

These are all a size #14. But should be tied from #10-18.
