I've had this pattern idea in my head for over a year. Why aren't there more newt patterns? I fish a small lake in the Catskills every now and then and it's loaded with newts doing their thing (insert porno music here)in the spring. Then it dawned on me; the fish have got to be eating these left and right. I made myself breakfree and tie a few before my trip. I had it all planned out in my head how I wanted it to go. I never bring a cam-corder fishing, but I wanted to document this thing. I banged three smallies on the two handed rod and a vernnewto...plus the one in the video on the 5wt single hand. There is more to this pattern and it's going to evolve.....just the start.
