Overhand Worm Peacock Bass!
Acrilic yarn OHW
Soon as I read the "Overhand worm treatise" by Chris Bum, I wanted to try it and was absolutely sure that "my" local peacocks would love it.
Actually, since they catch on almost anything that falls into to the water (even a bare hook), I was a little surprised I never before figured out a so simple fly could work for them.
The aspect I like most is that you can tie it on the go and change the hook dress to try different colors without even untying it from the tippet.
Practical and efficient, what else can anyone ask!?
“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin
"Study to be quiet." - Izaak Walton 1653
"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." Col. Robert Venables 1662
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.
