Time To Tie Flies (And Fish The Swift) The Swift Serendipity
This is the time of year when we tie flies, mountains of flies!!! For those of us that live within two hours of the Swift we can tie those flies and not have to wait until April to get them wet. I finished 2012 working a Swift Serendipity below the Pipe. It works anywhere that you have riffles or choppy water.
Here's the recipe:
scud hook - size 14 through 20
Body - red kevlar for the body. I like the waxy shine of kevlar. Keep it slim.
Wing - a tag of white turkey flat
head - dark red or reddish brown dubbing.
That's it!! A very simple fly that loves fast water
