Friday Night Flies – Tom Thumb Dry Fly
Some of my fondest memories of fly fishing comes from this very fly. It represents an emerging fly that is leaving it’s husk behind and then flies away as a fly. Any of you that have spent anytime on the water have seen the transformation from Chironomid to fly, this is also known as the hatch. You will suddenly see fish skimming the surface gathering up these easy meals.
