Don, is that Lloyd's pattern? Cool... hmm.. I recall seeing it in a back issue of Barry Mitchell's Alberta Fishing Guide.. no wait.... that was "The Mitchell Special" (also a secret fly for said Creek as I understand). The above recipe almost sounds / looks about right except I think for the hackle... but let me jump aboard the Sherman Wayback machine and get back to you. Hmmm... I think it was to imitate the little black winter stone flies out there that I see every year.. but have never actually seen fish take. I know Mikey D fishes an uber long tied Griffith's gnat to some effect to match that hatch. Looking.... researching...

 

Damn.. you had to mention Stauffer in the winter.. spring.. my cabin fever rose about 15 degrees now.

Here is the ACTUAL pattern. I knew I had this pattern someplace (right from the book of "Flies for Alberta" that I got Reg to sign before he passed). Sigh... I still miss Denny's Flyshop.

 

P.S. - Roy (DT, or other next of Kin).. please don't sue me. :)

Brother,

 

Do you really think Lloyd would have published what he actually fished with? I am risking ghostly visits just showing what I did. :)

 

 

Regards,

 

Tim

I think he's already lurking around Southwick's bench as we speak.. I noticed a few 'Spirit Orbs' in one of the photos he took. No wait... that was just Scotch & Five on the lens.

 

However, I am already busy trying to channel Roman to lend a hand with the Size 32 hooks when they arrive.
