Though I get all fuzzy inside when a trout sips a dry fly or slurps a nymph on the swing, I will take the crushing blow of a big brownie slamming a streamer over the more dainty stuff any day. And the bigger and uglier the streamer, the more pumped I am to throw it. That’s why I’m really digging Thomas Harvey’s Trophy Wife…which just so happens to be tied in this video by Brian Weiss with help from his real trophy wife. Granted, there’s about $40 worth of material in this bug, but it’s dead sexy and there will be some Trophy Wives in my flybox before my next visit to the river. I particularly like this tying video because of the clear, concise portrayal of each material and step. Yeah, that’s it. Let’s go with that. Have a great weekend.
