Andrij Horodysky, Blane Chocklett’s New Patterns, Skunked
Andrij’s stocked box
Got to see some amazing new patterns today at Mossy Creek Flyshop’s tiers showcase. Andrij Horodysky showed us how his nitro caddis pattern incorporates the science of light, Andrij has a PHD and recently published a paper on fish vision. Also out on display were some of Blane Chocklett’s new sili skin patterns;Blane not only invented the patterns but he also invented silly skin! His sili skin sculpin looks, as the rappers say, like the “shiznit”. Went to Mossy for a couple hours, arrived at 1pm to clear skies, still managed to make a few rise, no dice. Next time. This creek has really turned me into an optimist.
