Hickory Shad, Deer Creek, MD - 10 May 2013
by Rob Kirsch
(Wynnewood, PA, USA)
I thought of this fly as soon as the yarn arrived. It's a blue Clouser/Mayfly tied on a size 8 salmon hook. I stopped at Deer Creek on my way to the Tenkara Summit in VA. The Hickory run is just about over, and hasn't been that good this year, but I got 3 to the hand and several good tugs.

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
