PMD 2017

Just a week ago, June 5th & 6th, Yellowstone River hit the peak of this year's runoff, reaching 30,000 cfs 😲. With that, the outlet culvert of DePuy's Spring Creek was submerged. This is one the highest in the history and we can have high hopes for good cold summer flows & good constant fishing😀!! It will definitely wipe off PKD and following nightmares of last year😬!!

One of my most favorite and busiest times of the year, Pale Morning Dun hatch is just coming in a week (or so) at Livingston's spring creeks.

I just came up with the new pattern for this season; Thumb Down Emerger.
How I developed and how I came up with the name will be announced on my fly catalog in winter, along with the tying instruction video on YouTube.
Here's an emerger hook version
And on the straight hook - this is the very original intention.
Bottom view😏
My imagination and creativity extended a bit too far...........😅
Here's my rendition of PMD with the Atlantic Salmon Fly style😎

Besides with PMD on spring creeks, Giant Salmonfly (Pteronarcys californica - do not mix up with Salmon Fly like above!) is about to come. I will fish/guide/scout around. I will keep you updated.
