|The prototype Salamander fly|
After reading hundreds of reports from gear guys catching bass on salamanders, for the longest time I've been trying unsuccessfully to create a fly that imitates these creatures. I've never even come close. It was not until I started buying Fish Skull sculpin heads did I realize my dreams may have been answered. I made a few quick drawings one day away in the journal and later when I had time went to the vice to see if theory can become reality. I'm still experimenting with the body and possibly the legs but this is what I came up with. I had planned to try them today at Perris Lake but apparently my fishing buddy's vagina hurt and canceled on me last night. I know you're reading this, did you really expect no ribbing from me? I'll have to wait to see if these flies are a go or no go. We'll see, hopefully next week.
