The candy, not the game.

Size 20 for neighbor. He's looking to take home some stocked fish after fishing tomorrow's Trout Opening. Also gave him a recipe for Dill Stuffed Trout.

That's a size 12 scud for comparison at upper right.

Pretty simple, just hook, bead, crystal flash body and UV Ice Dub thorax. These work well on the "stockers".

The colors are a bit subdued in photo. I'm guessing any color combo will work.

Really Nice mixture of colors there! I don't think the fish will think twise on biting these candys! Green seem to be very effective on trout and char, but any colour will work fine. If you use some hacklefibers AS a tail, it may trigger the fish easyer, although these flies are just superb! Nice work Bill, and keep up the good work! :)

Thanks Thomas. Your suggestion is a good one. A wrap of soft hackle wouldn't hurt either I'll bet.
