Happy New Near!


Have a cup of cheer. Then consider the question. What was the best new bass fly to come along this year (2015)? Did you see it here or somewhere else?

I spent a lot of time studying Kelly Galloup's articulated flies. The patterns look great, though I did not use them enough to prove the concept. Anyway they have all been around for a while making them not new this year. Flies using new materials like silicon sheets and satin fibers also were interesting. In the end I will nominate Craig Riendieu's Wild Hare just premiered in Fly Tyer. Now I understand his receeding Hare tail. His version is labor intense so I will simplify. I will make it with Gilt Eyelash for the body and a fine wire brushguard. I will try to post a scan of th fly if I can find the magazine issue.
