“Ain’t that somethin’? She falls down a well, her eyes go cross. She gets kicked by a mule. They go back. I don’t know.” – Cousin Eddie
What a fun time of year to see all of the creative and fun flies around on social media for all of the Christmas fly tying contests. I’ve just entered one with my homies at the Fish Porn podcast who recently invited me to be a guest on their show. Check out episode 9 to hear the guys and myself bullshit, tell bad jokes, and drink beer.
My entry for the contest is a mop fly Christmas tree. This is a fun fly to tie. It’s super simple and according to +Mel Moore of The Bluegill Bug on Facebook, it’s super effective. I could also see trout eating these, because, it sort of resembles a big cased caddis, too.
What do you think??
To all of you out there that read this, I would like to wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas, and I hope you all get some time off of work.
Side note: I posted this with the year 2018 in the title and was called out by the man, the myth, John Sherlock. I will not update the title of this post, I sincerely hope you all have a very Merry Christmas in 2018. 🙂
