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 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.
