A phly for fishing on the dark side - sinister in colour

By

There's a dark side and a bright side...

In my previous life, I did some of my best work hanging under wings in
the dark [transcontinental cargo]... That was then... This is now...

There's something compelling about fishing at O'dark thirty. Dead drifting a substantial Sinister through the mugging zone...

Subtle signs... the floating line and short leader take on a different "feel"... things go tight... line pays out into the night...

The basic foundation remains very much the same as you have seen in The Phar Side Phly... with variations in colour... darker/lighter/larger/smaller... you decide... or rather: the fish decide...

Basic tying techniques are combined to achieve a desired insinuation...




Don't be afraid of size... or darkness



Location, location, location... and time on the water...
