Getting Ready For Springtime on the Yakima

With the cold, windy, rainy weather we've been having here in the Seattle area lately I have had a lot of time to sit around tying flies and dreaming about upcoming fishing trips. It was during one of these fly tying sessions that I was moved to tie a pattern for one of my favorite times on the Yakima. Early spring can be boom or bust on the Yak, and year to year it has proved to be one of the more unpredictable times to fish, but when it is good, it's really GOOD.

The natural coloration of the deer hair post makes the fly a bit harder to see, but trout seem to find it irresistible. Tie a few up for the Yak this season and let me know how it goes!
