The Triple Double

The Euro Nymph phenomenon has spawned a lot of Innovation when it comes to blending materials and anointing fresh creations with catchy names. None is better at both than our very own Fly Czar, Josh Linn....

Please stand by... evidently, someone didn't push the record button. Oops. Our video department is scheduling another studio session and will have the results posted next week. 

The triple double is a Perdigon style fly I’ve been playing with for a while. The triple is the tritone body; flash butt, main body, and hot collar, the double is from the double tail of Coq De Leon and Glo Brite. Adding the flash and the Glo Brite to the rear of the fly makes it stand out a little more. It has that little bit of flash that might look like a bubble or maybe just twinkle, and the Glo Brite tail gives a little red trigger.

 

I started fishing versions of these flies about two years ago playing with different color combos and this chartreuse has been one of the best. This fly has worked year round on the Deschutes and I tie it in size 14,16, and 18.
