CONVERSATION SATURDAY WITH BEN MCGEE, Guide Services Manager.
Paul: Ben, would you pick out 10 of the top guide flies for local waters (will be available in the FRA August Newsletter)
Paul: What the —— is is this.
Ben: Its called the Chubby and fish slam it plus its an awesome strike indicator.
Paul: It looks like a cross between a huge stonefly and a hopper. There is no way this is going to draw strikes on the small creeks around here.
Ben: Trust me it works.
Paul: All right I’ll try it but I’m not convinced. You have definitely been behind the counter too long!
SUNDAY MORNING ON THE SOUTH SAINT VRAIN - The Chubby is on the line with a copper John and Psycho Prince 18 and 30 inches down the leader.
Paul: Here’ s a very deep pool. There’s got to be a good fish here
WHAM! A 21-inch Rainbow takes the Chubby.
Paul: This is got to be a fluke. Here’s another deep hole next to some fast current
WHAM! A 19-inch Cuttbow Takes the Chubby.
I can’t believe this
One more time and I’ll never take this fly off
WHAM! A 18-Rainbow inhales the fly in fast water
We carry it in the shop
