Howard Cole started fly fishing over 35 years ago and has been tying flies nearly as long. He has tied flies at numerous events including the Federation of Fly Fishermen Conclave and the Eastern Idaho Fly Tying Expo. Some of his original flies have been published in books like Emergers and Flies of the West. He currently lives with his wife and daughter in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and where he is co-owner of High Country Flies.

Cole says: “Living in the Yellowstone Area, I never take for granted having one of the world’s most diverse trout fisheries right in my backyard. The plain truth is: Trout live in the most beautiful places. Simply observing the subtle rings left by a rising fish, rouses the same emotion that I had when I first came to this sport.”
Please take a look at Howard's site: http://www.flyfishingjacksonhole.com for trips, gear, and info as well as flies and fly tying materials.

Recipe:

  • Hook: Tiemco 900BL #14-#20
  • Thorax: Glass Bead 11/0-15/0 Diamond
  • Thread: Uni-Thread 8/0 Rusty Dun
  • Tail: Z-lon Amber
  • Body: Dubbing Dark Olive
  • Overbody: Z-lon Dark Olive
  • Wing: Deer Hair

Proper positioning of the Overbody is critical for the way this fly will fish. After pulling the Z-lon Overbody forward, secure it with 2 soft thread wraps. Then pull fibers back and to the sides so that when you view the fly from the bottom, the Overbody is heart shaped. Size and colors can be changed to match the different orders of Caddis. This is a very versatile fly. It can be fished dead-drift on the surface or in the film and also underneath, on the swing. Also, when you have that occasional rising fish, that doesn’t look like he is really feeding on anything per se, not a bad place to give this fly a try
