The heavy stuff for slovenia

I focussed on depth charges on Saturday afternoon. Nasty stuff! But I believe there are some deep and fast stretches that hold some large, challenging fish. I'm not really planning on spending my time dredging the river bed. I far prefer the surface action with small dries. But I've decided to be prepared for all eventualities or I could find myself wrong-footed.

Top row: "Egg flies" made up of 4 tungsten beads of tapering sizes and Bug Bond
Bottom row: Steve Thornton's Ammonite nymph, a brilliant heavy nymph and control fly.  I add an "overbody" of Bug Bond because it makes the pattern more robust and it just looks so good!


 Back to #24 midges now, much more my thing!
