Had a friend of mine call a couple nights ago looking for some Mosquitos on a #8 . Tied him a couple Adams and a couple Quill Gordon variants to go with him. Sorry about the pics,I was kinda in a rush.

Thanks Stephen!

When they need to get to a fly box so they can be put in trout mouths flies are impatient about being photographed. They'd tsther accomplish their nefarious feed on the water.

Best to you and yours.

Dear STEPHEN,

 

They look marvellous !!! sooooooooooooooo well tied !!!

 

Yes they are all great looking DRY flies...

 

pstttttt Your friend will be more than pleased with them...

 

pstttttttttttttttttttttt some periods on my beloved French little river (chalkstream)...read end of april  and beginning of may ...the first weeks of nature and 'hatches' who come on ...I was allways succesfull with a "MOSQUITO" like fly ....a realy small specimen (wich I tie as a 'MOSQUITO" but then with a 'CDC loopwing' and in sizes 16 and 18 ...thus small.............the French flyfishermen call them "PETIT GRIS"....but again apart of the 'CDC loopwing I put on ...they are exactly the same as a "M".........................ah ah ah but I tied them on allready on my cast during the summer months during the evenings ...to seduce 'selectif' trout ...aswell cruising trout in the 'smooth sections' of the river (trout mooving theirselves from one bank to allmost the other - RIVER ISN'T broad I must say where this happend)

 

a yes thus for this wich I will call not a "MOSQUITO" but a "PETIT GRIS" hahahahahahaha

As you can see, Geert is a Petit Nutcase.

Sad.

Dale, you guys are a hoot. Whether Geert is a nutcase or not I cannot comment but I do like that name. So from now on I think I will rename my mosquito
