YEG Blob
« on: May 23, 2017, 03:15:07 PM »
Get your BLOB on. It is that time of year again. By using existing 15 mm chenilles in my fly tying room it allowed me to maintain the UV presence in the fly pattern which is a great addition to the pattern.

There is a Step by Step tying procedure attached below.

Nice blob!  Patterson Lake, here you go!
I will fish anywhere and find beauty in it.

Don't be a Pessimist. Don't be an Optimist.  Be a Realist and change when you need to.

Thanks Chris, It did well last weekend on Rainbows and Tigers on Chain Lake. Although conditions where not idea for this colour pattern at the time. I think it would have preformed even better had there been more direct sunlight instead of the overcast. But it is possible that the luminescent center may have been effective under the overcast condition. I am sure that the UV reflectiveness in the 15mm chenille helped also.

Very Nice!!! :)
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...
