Once upon a time, dusters were made of feathers, but these days they are made of some kind of miracle plastic crap that apparently attracts dust. I know this because there is one sitting in a bucket near my fly tying station. I barely noticed it – ok I confess I don’t do a lot of dusting – until today when a little light bulb went off in my ever so tiny brain, and I thought, I could make trout flies from this stuff.
And so The Duster was born….
I made two versions, one with a tinsel body and the other with an orange sparkle yarn body.
I’m betting it will be an attractive fly for Troutis maximus rex. I think, scientific trials are required. I will undertake these Monday at The River.
