Default The Green Gobbler Evolves

I did a little shopping and found some 2/0, 10X Long Carrie Stevens Hooks at Stone River Outfitters yesterday. So I decided to tie my Green Gobbler on a proper hook.

Here is what I came up with. The wing is a little long, other wise a pretty good effort.

A little long? Not. I know a few places where many a landlock would smash that.

It is a plain fact, however, that downstream fishing with a non-imitative fly (lure, in the British sense) does not mix comfortably with upstream imitative fishing...I'll stay out of the argument about whether this technique is really fly fishing. In terms of interest, it is for me ahead of most downstream fishing and spinning. And I've already opined that spinning is better than staying at home with the television set.

That's a real beauty! For my taste, I'd like to see larger (not longer) hackles that balance better with the size of the hook & shoulders, but i think the fish will like it the way it is.

Nice job,
Mark

Mark,

Great observation. I have always had a problem with proportion. I can generally get the length right but I have never really given much thought to the width or height.

In addition to the larger wing maybe smaller cheeks would have helped balance the look of this attempt

To everyone else, thanks.

Warren
