LOD: Back to Roots

Where would a guy find the recipe for the LOD? I'd like to tie a few up and fling them in front of a carp some day. Thanks

It's a BH bugger with a peacock shellback:

DB eyes
Body: chenille - green, brown or rust
Hackle: standard colors
Tail: marabou - green, brown or rust
Shellback: peacock - I like to use the strands from the eye of the feather

Easy to tie and very effective. In this pic I went back to the model I used for a long time that just stuck carp after carp... The "newer" make was bigger because I happened to have some better quality hooks that were bigger. I've noticed more fish spook at it. Still really good, but not as good as the older version.

The fact is, there is an optimal size. If you threw out a fly the size of a muskie lure, you wouldn't catch sh*t. Same if you threw out a fly the size of a gnat. Somewhere on that continuum is an optimum. I think I crossed it when I made the newer LOD bigger. So I went back in time.

Optimal size ..... it's a little hard to tell from the extreme close-up, but are those about an 8? How big was too big in the newer version? Thanks.

Good eye - I'd say 8 is optimal, IMO. #4-6 is getting big. You could do #10 even.
