I posted this a couple of years ago and thought someone on here tied flies but we never got that to work out for some reason!

I am looking for a long shank brown woolly worm fly with a gold band around it.

The image below only represents the band look and in no way represents what I am looking for otherwise!

Anybody out there make or know somebody that can make a brown woolly worm with a gold band?

Wooly worms are one of those all-fish flies, had a few white WW's for Bonefish (deeper water), you can even fish it dry and 'twitch' it to bring summer steelies to the surface...

(sorry, I dont tie any more...)

Can anyone suggest a guide service for LF? I'd like to take my son, we don't flyfish though. Is there a preferred time of the year?

I've been with Lee's Ferry Anglers a few times over the years.  I try to go with Terry if possible.  Have enjoyed his company & his style (and his knowledge).

 

As for the preferred time, I think that is of course a matter of opinion.  Winter can be good, but cleaning ice out of your rod eyes can get old. :lol:    Summer is nice, but can be HOT!    Not matter what time of year, I've never regretted spending time there!  Spectacular place! ^_^ 

 

Good luck and have fun!

PS:  Lee's Ferry Anglers will take spin fisherman.  They will encourage you to fly fish and show you some great techniques, but they welcome spin fishers.


Take a kid hunting!!!!!

I have a flyrod but have only tried to use it a couple of times. Not as easy as some people make it look. I have found that when I get ice buildup on the eyes I stick the rod in the water for a few seconds and that melts it well enough to cast.
