How To Tie The Inebriated


Curved Caddis Hook Mustad 49CS (Any size you choose)
Black Thread
Chartruese Wire
White Antron or Icelandic Wool
Six Pack of Coors Light


Drink the six pack first. Start you thread behind the beadhead and wrap down to about two thirds of where the hook bends. Keep wrapping making a nice smooth body. This may be difficult since you are a six pack under by now. Tie in your wire behind the beadhead and wrap back and once again make a body over the wire. Finish your thread wraps behind the beadhead. Palmer your wire up to the beadhead in even smooth wraps, tie off wire. Take a small tuft of white antron or Icelandic wool and tie in behind beadhead. Cut off excess and then whip finish. Send wife to store for more beer and watch the football game because it's too dang cold and windy to fish (like today).

I've fished this creation on both the Blue and the Lower Mountain Fork and unbelievable as it may seem this fly captures bows.

How do you usually fish this little guy?

It started as a farce Harley, but if you simply drift it you'll capture fish. The first one I tied not only had the tuft near the beadhead but it had a trailing shuck. Now..go figure.

Hey, glad you are exploring the C&R more and hope you will continue. I think there is a lot to be said about that area that has yet to be said.

Keep up the good reports and your blog.
