Chubby Chernobyl

Here's a pattern that can have you dreaming of summer time and big dry flies along the banks!  The Chubby Chernobyl is as big and bright as any fly out there.  I haven't fished this particular fly, but have fished many like it over the years.  I tied some up to try out this summer, which will be here before we know it.  I am not complaining, just trying to be prepared!    For those of you who have fished this pattern and have had success, leave a comment about this fly.  I am sure there will be a few.

    Are you guys ready to get out in warmer weather and throw bigger bugs? I am!

  6. Great pocket water fly. Can suspend one or two droppers. Durable. Catches plenty of fish also!
    Bring on summer.

  9. Do you ever credit designers of flies, or simply editorialize? Thanks for your magnificent insight on a common trout fly.

    1. I try to credit those patterns that I know who designed them. In this case I don't know of the designer of this particular pattern, just that it is a variation of another pattern.
