Tying the LTD-X

The LTD-X




The LTD-X (X meaning an unnamed 1-year prototype) has performed well beyond expectations over the past season. Tied and fished in this size and pattern only, this BWO has proven itself. A true dun vs the emergent characteristics of the LTD, it has filled a well-used niche in my box.


LTD-X Recipe

Hook:  #16 Standard Dry
Thread:  Olive Dun 8/0 Uni-thread
Tail: 2 Moose body hairs
Abdomen: 2 Moose body hairs
Thorax:  Olive Orvis Spectrablend
Wing:  Dun CDC
Hackle:  Speckled Silver Badger
