New to Forum and sharing a Cricket


I want to thank you for allowing me to join. I have been enjoying the forum and hope to learn and share some helpful patterns to catch some fish. I have been fly fishing for years in Virginia but only tying for under 9 months.

This pattern is one of the first ( well after a wooly bugger) I worked on figuring out. I like to share both traditional and non-traditional patterns.

Foam Cricket...

How did it Fish? One of the best fishing trips I ever had took place down in the Louisiana bayou near New Iberia with my uncle. We went to a bait shop and he filled up two cricket baskets with live black and brown crickets. Needless to say, we each caught more fish than I have ever caught in a 24 hr period. I recently tied a cricket pattern, deer hair cricket, and am eager to try it out. Tight Lines!
