Born and raised in Colorado my addiction for hunting trophy trout was a four-season experience, especially on the tailwaters of the Taylor, Frying Pan, and the Blue Rivers. These Mysis drainages force you to evaluate your patterns on a regular basis trying to find the creation that works in both high and low water conditions.
My Mysis evolved 10 years ago after noticing that you need natural movement from the fly to imitate the translucent look of a Mysis that is alive and the opaque color of a shrimp that is dead. With clear rubber antenna and white ostrich thorax tied at the bend of the Tiemco #16/18 200R hook, this imitation will pulsate in any current speed while maintaining flash with the tinsel on the thorax and abdomen capturing the attention of the large trout that are known opportunistic feeders. To finish the fly and ensure durability lay a thin coat of Loctite super glue over the tinsel and white 8/0 UNI thread wraps on the abdomen.
