It's pretty effin simple

This is a flat 100% eat every time. LOD iteration with the chenille and hackle swapped out for a skinny little strip of palmered tanned squirrel hide. The top of the squirrel pushed down by the peacock wingcase. The deal secured by a wrap of medium wire. The wire providing the segmentation that gives this thing a tangent of a look of a house centipede or a hex bug or something crunchy and soft at the same time.

Back in June the scene was this: John Montana and I, walking up a flat with the sun taking a serious fall at our backs. Carp were in front of us like big hooded lanterns there, facing away with asses tilted upward maybe 30-45 degrees... it was like we'd arranged the set up. Waving wands and progressing through the gameboard, dealing flies to these monk fish who didn't hesitate even once. The only thing that limited us was the ruckus caused by each hook up. Worked our way through that with deadly precision there as the grayness came on. Nice sandy bottom for wading. And of the millions of people in the world... we were the only two walking in Lake Michigan that night; the only two seeing those fish and connecting with them. I always find that hard to believe: that something so sweet is so overlooked. But in the end that works out well. The point of that recollection is that I used one fly that evening: Legion of Doom. It is your destiny, fellow swappers.

That day...we squeezed every last possible drop of light from the sky. I recall sitting on the trunk of the rental car, satisfied and reflecting on the day while contemplating our completely wrecked footwear.

That moment makes the all time great memory list.

NICE. Doom will be the fate of many fish.

Those are really that cliche'term "buggy"! We have the burrowers here, in carp waters mostly Epheron sp. and E. simulans, but I rarely have access to those Snake R. flats with them. But those flies have such protein filled triggers that I think they'd work for all my carp. Way cool!

Sweet, love the LOD. I am real fond of that profile. I may have to rig the swap so that I get one because I am certain the LOD is golden on my waters.

Those are sweeet.

In a doom, death, and destruction sort of way, I mean.

Seriously - awesome flies.

Good notes - thanks folks.

One thing that needs to be field tested on this iteration: sink rate. Thinking it should be around optimal but as yet unverified. The normal LOD uses a tighter body of chenille with a palmered hackle. Sinks pretty quickly. Anyway; should be good to go.

These went in the mail today. Thanks again to McTage for rocking a nice carp fly swap.

Any chance of doing a step by step on this fly? Looks like it would be a winner in Texas too.
I think I got the written instructions but photos make the synapses fire better.

Thanks folks. Good notes.

Bob: see March 7, 2012 post of step-by-step.
