    "Chicago Fly"

    Anyone tie this one, or have experience fishing it the CR? I head Gerald McDaniel talk about it at a Bass Pro Seminar in Clarksville a while back.

    If you fish the Cumberland you should always carry some Chicago Flies. It is a fly that I would fish every where for every fish in fresh water.

    That looks like a Wooly Bugger that has caught several fish! Looks pretty easy to tie! Guess they have some skinny little leeches in Chicago ! If it produces fish , I would use it !!! :

    I will tie you a bunch in the fall or winter months. Right now , I have been so busy that I cannot find time to tie myself some. ( I still have a lot of HH to catch up on , And a lot of new ideas bouncing around upstairs ) But I could show you in just a few minutes how to tie them yourself. Nothing more gratifying than catching some fish on a fly that you have tied yourself !!! And a great way to kill time if you have a bunch of it on your hands.

    Either give a Man a fish , Or TEACH him to fish ???

    Looks just like a black, Mohair leech. We fished with the same thing growing up in UT. We used black and brown.....but we called them Mohair leeches. Great flies!
