|Umpqua's Olson's Slider|
I spoke with Gabe Schubert a few days back and he mentioned this pattern as being a real winner. The Olson's Slider is commercially available through Umpqua, tied by David Olson. I am going to pick one up from my local fly shop and give it a gander. Looks straight forward, but i want to see the physical size of the pattern to see if we can "go large" or maybe make a few alterations. All in all a really nice pattern....deer hair, flash, hackle - smallmouth magnet.
More on this fly soon.
I stopped by Bob Mitchell's and picked up a few Olson's Sliders in red and white. This is a very neat pattern that reminds me of a cross between the Wilderdilch and Ward Bean's Red Faced Wobbler. See what I mean?
