    Default Fly tying

    I don't fly fish much but to kill some time this winter I wanted to try my hand at fly tying. I started off tying some jigs for steelhead and ended up tying this wasp the other day. Im happy the way it came out but I wonder if it would work for trout LOL Has anyone tried it before ? any suggestions or feedback is appreciated.

    Nice job Tom Gobble looks realistic.
    will you be using it as a dry fly or wet fly?

    I use to tie them as a kid. Been considering getting another kit. Great job on the fly. Myself I like to dry fly fish. Or use a half hitch with a regular fly.

    Dry fly because it floats.

    I've caught a few trout on bee and wasp patterns in the late Summer to early Fall. Most of these times have been when the fish have been rejecting everything else I've put in front of them!

    There's a wet fly pattern called a McGinty that's considered a classic Bee/Wasp pattern.

    There is an English chalk stream traditional wet fly called the Mc Ginty that represents the tell tale yellow and black warning stripes of a bee or wasp. You can tie it in a dry fly pattern as well. That''s how I tie it. I've kept a few in my trout box for over 30 years. I use them occasionally when fishing Brook trout. I'n answer to your question, Yes trout will take a bee or wasp imitation. img479e8226790f2.jpg
