Yes, reinforcements have arrived to fill the breach! After my tying and fishing friend Paul heard that I'd lost my one and only Dark Edson Tiger (which he had given me at a recent trout stream sorté), he tied up a fresh batch in several sizes and variations and mailed them to me.
A couple of posts ago (here and here) I reported on how much fun I'd had with this fly, and that I was disappointed to lose it at a time on a warm-water river when it was proving itself to also be a smallmouth bass streamer of substantial prowess.
Paul has also volunteered to send me some text for a follow up posting. It will provide additional information about the history of this old fly and how he likes to fish it. He's been fishing this pattern for over 35 years so I, for one, will listen to what he has to say!
