    Default Marsden's Mohican ??

    Very keen on this fly. I have been tying some of these up. Wondering about effectiveness, colors , sizes, proportions etc. Anyone here fish these Mohican's? And any tips on tying these and any fishing history on the pattern appreciated. Best hooks? Thanks

    I was introduced to this fly at kilnsey fishery last year, by Clark Colman, and after a couple of casts caught a 15ib rainbow! It was a green fly and I guess must look like a damsel fly nymph. Have fished it since and it's very effective. I fished it on a floating line with no weight. Once wet it seems to sink slowly. It's a great fly. David

    Thanks very much David. That is the kind of info I was after. It looks deadly. Been tying them from true #12's to the over-sized comp styles in #10. They look like a fun fly to fish. #15 Rainbow??-I think that says something!!
