That's brilliant! Did you tie the one in the pic?
I understand that two-fly rigs aren't allowed in British Columbia. Found this pattern on another site and thought I would share it with you fine folks. I'll definately be tying an assortment of variations of these for wet-lining.
That one's a screenshot from the link. You can also simply bend a 4xl streamer hook, I'd assume similar to this 'epoxy back cray' via ftf.com. Just make sure you're using a good quality hook or I could see the bending process causing some grief.
You can buy hooks that have that strange curve in it here: http://www.canadianllama.com/index.p...products_id=81
I like this idea a lot! Definitely going to try it out, but I wonder how this hook is at holding fish?

Good to hear, and ...ya, nice avatar picture! Wow...
This is the one I tie

I tied up some double chronies in the spring on just Xlong hooks (can't remember what kind but not bent) but I don't think that it will matter as long as the hook is long enough to tie a double pattern on. Tied up black&red and chromies and they worked the same as single patterns. I didn't notice any difference in the amount of fish caught.
About ten years ago I developed a pattern called Blood Brothers, a red and green bloodworm on a size 12 swimming nymph hook. I would recommend tying on a different hook though.
Did you fish that fly John, and was there any sort of difference in success using it?
