For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form

Good morning. Wow what a nice breakfast, french toast and maple syrup. Maple syrup is one of our many comforts. It's many uses of which toppings are probably the best known. I like to add it to stews, and a blend of it along with cayenne pepper makes a great glaze for chicken.
I read somewhere that 40% of the maple syrup harvested in the U.S. comes from New England, and the state that produces the most is Vermont. It is also said that Maine has the sweetest maple syrup. Which leads to a sweet simple fly....Maple Syrup.
This simple fly has but 2 materials, tan chenille and yellow bucktail. I'm not certain of what it represents, probably a nymph I guess. It works when used, and I should use it more often...perhaps I should add it to my 2019 resolutions.
Here are a couple of "small stream" spey flies....
