    I like that a lot. Seal buggering an olive willy is genius! I’m going to tie one for my next day on the water. Thanks for the pic!

    I’m curious about the fly you just described David… it sounds like a winner. Can you post a pic?

    I feel your pain David. Very generous of you to offer to tie. Like many others I’ve had excellent success with the olive willy… it’s become my go-to on high and lowland lakes. Best tutorial I’ve seen on the pattern is here – https://youtu.be/H4rZ8v_Xc9M. I usually use yellow dyed guinea for the hackle. Have been having very good luck with burnt orange seal buggers (Denny Rickards style) also. Hope this is useful 🙂

    Hi Garrett. I’m excited to hear about the fish you described. And I can relate to your comments. Especially the part about convincing yourself you were exaggerating about the size. As if the logical part of the mind is calling “bullshit” on what your eyes registered. Almost 2 years later I still experience that with this one.

    (pics will be attached separately)
