Size 10 bead chain black Killer Bugger. Hand tied no clamps.

After two days of fussing with size 26 midges and 6X tippet and the picky daytime trout of the San Juan river in New Mexico I needed something different. Wading deep into the Texas Hole in the dark with a big fly and a big rod to catch a big enough fish was just the ticket.

“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.
